Worcester Wolves new-look squad has the potential to cause teams "a lot of problems" this season, but must gel as fast as possible says director of basketball Paul James.

James has signed five new players after letting all but one of his squad from last term leave in the close season.

"We're going to have a very solid unit, the key is they will have to gel very quickly," James said.

"They're such talented players, we're going to a lot of teams problems."

The 2014 British Basketball League Trophy and Championship play-off winners stripped out their squad from 2014-15 with only guard Disraeli Lufadej staying on at the University Arena.

James has moved to bring in guards Ashton Khan and Malik Smith along with forwards Javier Mugica, Perris Blackwell and the former Leicester Rider star Jay Couisnard.

And James is very happy with the recruiting he has managed to do.

"I'm ecstatic, I'm really pleased with what we've done," he added to BBC Hereford and Worcester.

"Putting them on the floor and seeing whether they play together remains to be seen - but that's my job.

"I've very excited about what we might be able to do."
