WORCESTER Wolves have finally found their additional big man in 6ft 10in centre Lester Prosper from the British Virgin Islands.

Prosper, 30, ended last season at Panama LPB side Panteras where he averaged 16.4 points, 10.2 rebounds, 1.2 assists and 1.3 blocks per game.

He is a well-travelled veteran with experience across a number of leagues.

Out of Old Westbury College, he had pre-draft workouts with Boston Celtics, Phoenix Suns, Philadelphia 76ers and Washington Wizards.

Prosper spent his rookie year at Swedish Eurocup side Norrkoping Dolphins and the Slovakians MBK Handlova.

His career has since taken him from the Moncton Miracles, Oshawa Power and Windsor Express in the Canadian NBL to the G-League Maine Red Claws in the USA and into Russian, Colombian, Spanish, Mexican, Venezuelan and Dominican Republic leagues.

On joining Wolves, Prosper said: “I feel I can bring something to the table that could help the team and the organisation get over the jump.”

Wolves hope Prosper will bring the inside presence they need to go up against the bigger bodies in the league.

He arrives with a proven track record and a strong reputation as an imposing centre at both ends of the floor.

Worcester managing director Mick Donovan said: “We have been really patient whilst searching for a player who can add value to the exciting group we have.

"Lester will bring much-needed support as a centre and we believe he will have a positive impact upon the performances of what has been an under-strength team in terms of the number of experienced players available since the start of the season.”

Wolves head coach Ty Shaw said: “Lester has a great opportunity to reinforce our frontline and create a tough match-up for opponents on both ends of the floor.

"He has good size, gets up and down the floor and brings experience to our team.”

Prosper will land in the United Kingdom on Saturday and will have almost two weeks to work with the team ahead of the next game on Friday, December 14, against Cheshire Phoenix at the University of Worcester Arena.
