Plymouth Raiders have signed GB international Ben Mockford after parting ways with veteran forward Nick George.
Mockford began his pro career in Spain with Caceres in the third division, but recently left due to ‘personal reasons’. The 25-year-old had a breakout summer with the national side with some impressive performance including a 19-point haul against Bosnia.
In 8 games in LEB Silver, Mockford was averaging 13 points per game with a shooting percentage of 37% from 3-point range, and he will look to improve the fortunes of the Raiders – who sit in 11th four points of the playoff positions with a 4-10 record.
With one in, comes one out as George departs having joined the club around this time last year and the 32-year-old released a short statement on Twitter, confirming his exit.
The Raiders and I have parted ways. Had a great experience & Big thanks to the fans for all the support!
