Lee Reilly joins the Rocks having played most of his career with the City of Edinburgh Kings whereby he won every honour possible in the Scottish National League, played for every age group within the Scotland National teams and also made an appearance for the GB Under 20 team.
Lee will also be coming into the team with previous professional experience under his belt. During the 2013/14 season Lee played for Big Oettinger Rockets Gotha in Germany’s Pro A alongside fellow Scottish International Ali Fraser.
Head Coach, Sterling Davis had the following to say about his most recent acquisition:
“Lee is an option re-explored after an attempt a couple of years ago to get him on board. His time spent in Germany proved a success and gave him a chance to show his skill set in a very competitive league. He is a very smart player that understands the game which was a big draw for me. A huge factor in our decision of bringing in Lee was previous ties he already had with quite a few of the players through basketball. We want to make sure we continue moving in the right direction on court but it starts with the calibre of guys we have in our group.”
Reilly is looking forward to starting the next chapter in his career:
“I’m delighted to be here with the Glasgow Rocks and am excited to try and help the team continue on their great start to the season.””
