Leicester Riders have moved to add Iowa State graduate Zoran Talley Jr to the roster ahead of Friday night’s clash with the Newcastle Eagles.
The Indiana native produced well for Iowa State in his Junior season where as a starter, he averaged 10.3 points, 5.3 rebounds and 2.5 assists bringing great length on the wing.
Talley Jr is pleased to have signed and looking forward to arriving.
“Signing pro is something I’ve been waiting to do my whole life and now that it’s time for this chapter in my life, I’m excited for it to get started.
“I feel great with signing under the Riders. Can’t wait to experience the culture and see how basketball is across the world. I never traveled to the UK before so I’m ready to learn and soak up as much of the culture as I can in a foreign country.
“The winning history made the decision easier for me. I like to win and being around that environment is something that I am really excited for.
“Fans can expect a winning mentality. I can score the ball but most definitely, I take pride on the defensive end. I’ll do whatever it takes to win. I’m ready to continue the championship streak that the Riders have.”
Talley Jr is expected to join the team this week ahead of this weekend’s fixture against the Newcastle Eagles, with tickets on sale for the game by CLICKING HERE
