Nate Reinking has been appointed as the new head coach of the Great Britain men's national basketball team.

The 45-year-old is a former GB shooting guard and assistant coach and succeeds Alberto Lorenzo for the EuroBasket 2021 pre-qualifying programme next month.

American-born Reinking said: "The Great Britain national team has been a huge part of my life and career not only as a player but as a coach."

Reinking leaves his role as head coach of NBA G-League side Canton Charge.

The Ohio native played 10 seasons in the BBL for Leicester, Derby, Sheffield and Mersey Tigers as well as in Europe.

Both home matches in the pre-qualifying programme against Luxembourg (10 August) and Kosovo (17 August) will take place at the National Basketball Performance Centre in Manchester.
