The Plymouth Raiders today announced the signing of former Essex Pirates guard Taner Adu. The 6’3, England international averaged 17 points, 3 assists, 3 rebounds and 2 steals per game last season and is a great coup for the Raiders.
New Head Coach Gavin Love is pleased with the signing;
“Taner is a great pick up for us. A number of BBL teams offered Taner a contract, but I think our reputation here, together with the opportunities that he will get playing for the Raiders helped swing the balance in our favour. He’ll give us a really solid option at point guard, he can shoot the ball very well, he lead Essex in scoring and had some massive games against other teams last year. He does the small things very well, he gets the ball to the right people, he’s a tough defender, and I’m overjoyed that he’s chosen to come to Plymouth and play for us.”
Plymouth are expected announce further signings in the coming weeks.
