Greece lightning as Rickey McGill joins Raiders

American Iona College star Rickey McGill becomes the latest addition to Plymouth Raiders’ roster as the Summer recruitment drive charges through the gears.

The 6’2″ point guard made his pro debut for Athens based Panionios last season in Greece’s top tier, HEBA A1.

Contributing on average eight points per game, three rebounds and four assists, McGill has demonstrated his talents in one of Europe’s toughest leagues and is raring to go in the BBL.

During Summer 2019, the 23-year-old joined NBA side Sacramento Kings for their pre-draft workouts where he subsequently caught the eye of European teams.

“I’m super excited to have signed for the Raiders and can’t wait to get on the court and represent the city of Plymouth,” said McGill.

“Coach has told me great things about the fans and city, so I am looking forward to hopefully entertaining them and bringing success to this club. I’m grateful for the opportunity and can’t wait to get started.”

Raiders Head Coach Paul James, added, “I am very happy with the signing of Rickey McGill. He is a guard who comes to us having played his rookie season for Panionios Athens in the very tough Greek A1 league. He is a tremendously quick and dynamic player who can score in many ways as well as being a great facilitator of the ball.

“He plays with great intelligence and attitude and we are very pleased to have been able to sign him for the coming season. He is a great addition to our team and we’re sure he will excel and contribute greatly to our season”.
