Neighbour’s first spell at the club came during the 2017-18 campaign following two seasons with Surrey Scorchers having also played in Hungary, Sweden and Spain.
“I’m really looking forward to coming back and playing for Plymouth,” he said. “During my time at the club I have built several good loyal friends who have treated me like family.
“So, I have another level of love for Plymouth and the Raiders now, this feels like home. Looks like we are going to have an incredibly talented team and I’m very excited about getting on court with everyone and competing for a Championship.”
Neighbour links up with former Royals and GB Under-20 team-mate Andrew Lawrence with American guard Rickey McGill also signed following his rookie year in Greece.
Despite Neighbour’s return, it’s expected to be a new-look roster for Plymouth with the departures of Josh Wilcher, Rashad Hassan and Isa Brandon to BBL rivals already confirmed as well as overseas moves for Ryan Richards and Gary Talton.
