Big news for reigning champs the Perth Wildcats, who have signed the last piece of their puzzle for the 2017/18 NBL season.
American forward Derek Cooke Junior, straight out of the NBA Development League, is coming to Perth and completes the Wildcats' 11-man playing roster.
Cooke Jr. is a 206cm, 100kg, high-flyer who last represented the Northern Arizona Suns in the NBA G-League (formerly NBA D-League).
He's said to be a force around the basket with the speed and athleticism to run the floor
Wildcats coach Trevor Gleeson said this about his latest signing;
“In our search we were really looking for a guy who is athletic, can rebound the ball well and finish above the rim, and we came across Derek. We think he’s a really good fit for our team...”
Cooke arrives in Perth early next month.
