Rocks Secure Commonwealth Starlet

 

The Radisson Red Glasgow Rocks are delighted to have secured the services of Scotland International Fraser Malcolm for the 2019/20 BBL Season.

Malcolm, who has spent the last four seasons playing in NCAA 2 for Black Hill State University, was a key part of the Scotland team who finished 4th in the Commonwealth Games. And whilst a new face in Glasgow, the Falkirk native is familiar with many of the Rocks core – having played with Jonny Bunyan & Ali Fraser through the Falkirk Fury system and having played alongside Gareth Murray & fellow new signing Earl Russell whilst representing Scotland and Great Britain U20s respectively.

Upon signing, Malcolm said: “I’m really excited to be joining the Rocks and coming home to play basketball in Scotland. I’m very fortunate to be a part of such a great organisation with such a supportive fan base. I can’t wait to get on the court and have a great season!”

And Coach Lavandier was delighted to bring in his latest Scottish Forward: “In my desire to build a team with the maximum of UK players, I really wanted Malcolm’s signature who played in U20 selection for Great Britain with Earl Russell.

He is also a player on the Scottish national team in the Commonwealth Games. Malcolm arrives from NCAA 2, where he has achieved high-quality course finishing at 16 pts – 43% at 3pts – and 6 Rebounds. His shooting skills and his knowledge of international games will be a plus for the Rocks. And I know it will be very well advised daily by our Captain Gareth Murray to densify his game.”

The entire Rocks organisation would like to welcome Fraser home, and welcome him to Glasgow!
