Worcester Wolves have signed Great Britain star Robert Gilchrist on a temporary contract.
The 6ft 9in power forward made his debut in yesterday's fixture against Plymouth Raiders, as the Wolves climbed above their opponents in the BBL standings.
Gilchrist scored 14 points, with 8 rebounds on his first outing.
Paul James, Wolves Head Coach, said: “We are delighted to have secured the services of such a high quality player as Robert Gilchrist. Even though this is a short term solution, we have a very hectic December schedule and this will bolster our squad while we look for a permanent fixture.”
Gilchrist joins the Wolves after playing at Spanish side Araberri last season in the Liga Española de Baloncesto Oro, the second basketball division of the Spanish basketball league, where he averaged 6.4 points and 5.2 rebounds per game.
He played for his country at under 18 and under 20 level and made his senior debut against New Zealand during 2015, scoring 12 points on the night, and has made seven appearances for Great Britain.
