WORCESTER Wolves have added British Basketball League experience to their roster with the “significant” signing of Raheem May-Thompson.

The British 6ft 6in forward spent three seasons in the BBL with Cheshire Phoenix and Leicester Riders before joining French side Mulhouse Pfastatt last term.

In his final season with Cheshire, May-Thompson averaged 14.4 points and four rebounds per game. The 28-year-old also won the BBL Cup that same campaign when the Phoenix defeated Wolves in the final in Birmingham.

May-Thompson also represented at Great Britain under 20 and England at under 16 levels.

Worcester head coach Matt Newby described May-Thompson as a “cultural architect” that would “lead by example”.

“I think this signing is a significant for the team on a number of levels,” Newby said.

“Raheem has proven output in the league and inevitably had a number of teams vying for his signature.

“The reason is simple as he has the energy, output and the ability to influence the team’s fabric.

“He is very much a cultural architect, leading by example showing a strong level of pride in getting the job done.

“He has the ability to defend multiple positions and generate extra possessions through his high-level output and game sense.

“I look forward to working with Raheem this season and welcome him to the Wolf Pack”

May-Thompson is also looking forward to joining Wolves ahead of the new season.

“I am excited to play at Worcester largely due to their fan base the Wolf Pack and the community in Worcester,” May-Thompson said.

“Every time I have played against Worcester at their arena in the past, home games would always be packed out.”
