Worcester Wolves continue their recruitment ahead of the new British Basketball Season with the signing of the versatile Shooting Guard Henry Wilkins.
Wilkins becomes the club’s tenth signing and brings a wealth of experience to the team, having played across mainland Europe, as well as three seasons in the BBL with the Surrey Scorchers.
The 6’5″ British Shooting Guard can also play at the Small Forward position and last season playing in thirteen games for the Scorchers, he totalled 76 points, 24 assists and 19 rebounds.
Wilkins has the ability to impact and change a game with his skill set and combined with his experience of the BBL, he is an exciting acquisition to the Wolves roster.
He will be reunited with former Scorchers teammate Jordan Williams, who re-signed with the Wolves in August and with Head Coach Matt Newby from his time at Leeds Carnegie.
“Signing Henry is a major boost and adds more depth to the roster,” said Wolves Head Coach Matt Newby. “He is a very intelligent player who compliments our perimeter and will bring a competitive edge on a daily basis.
“He has a well-rounded skill set and will bring a cool head and impact our play at both ends of the floor. I have obviously coached him before in the three seasons he was with Leeds Carnegie where he contributed to highly a successful program.
“With International stops in Denmark, Spain and Austria he has grown as a player and his most recent stints at Surrey would see him take more responsibility as leader and some extent had a veteran role.
“In some way, things have come full circle and I look forward to him enhancing our environment, culture and seeing significant outputs on game night.”
Wilkins is excited to have the opportunity to play for the Wolves and enter his fourth season in Britain’s premier basketball league.
“I’m super excited to be joining the Worcester Wolves this season,” added Wilkins. “I look forward to building on the team’s success of last season and being part of the winning culture at this historic club.”
