Leicester is the next destination for Joe Scott who brings the experience of playing professionally all over Europe to the Riders roster next season.
The 31 year old sharp shooter graduated from the University of St. Thomas in 2010 before starting his professional career later that year.
Scott’s professional career has taken him all over Europe playing in Germany, Spain, Albania and most recently Austria. Joe spent last season with the Vienna Timberwolves in the Austrian Bundeslig where he averaged an impressive 15.33 points and 2.31 assists per game on an impressive 40% from behind the 3 point line.
The Italian-American guard played alongside former Riders Captain Tyler Bernardini in Italy and played his High School basketball with former Rider Cameron Rundles. Both Rundles and Bernardini played a part in Scott choosing to play in Leicester this season.
Scott will provide much needed experience to Coach Paternostro’s Riders this season in the form of his excellent 3 point shooting and his tenacious defence.
