Bristol Flyers have signed American guard Bree Perine.

The 26-year-old arrives from Wisconsin Green Bay in time for Friday's BBL Cup semi-final against Glasgow.

Perine will provide cover for Doug Herring, who is out for the rest of the season after undergoing surgery on a knee injury.

"Dealing with the loss of Doug Herring through injury has been tough on the team," Flyers coach Andreas Kapoulas told the club website.external-link

"The last couple of weeks all our players have stepped up their game to cover Doug's absence.

"Bree brings more depth and versatility to our team. He is a very talented player with valuable experience from his spells in Israel, Netherlands and Hungary.

"His size and height make him really tough to guard and I think he will fit very well to the Flyers family and what we want to achieve."
