Former import Jesse Sanders will return to the Sydney Kings for the remainder of the 2013/14 NBL season.
He is replacing Charles Carmouche, who has returned to the United States for personal reasons late this week.
Sanders was popular with teammates and fans when he played for the Kings in the first half of the season, and he’s delighted to be returning.
“The chance to help the Kings make the play-offs was too good to pass-up,” said Sanders.
“I feel for Charles, we became good friends during my first stint with the Kings, and I wish him all the best during what is obviously a tough time for him.”
Sanders will be back in Sydney in time to resume training with the Kings this week. He’ll be ready to play when the Kings host Perth on Sunday.
“The club is excited to welcome back Jesse,” said Kings General Manager, Rod Harys. “But at the same time we are concerned for the welfare of Charles and the club is offering ongoing for support for Charles and his family.”
The Sydney Kings will have six games of the regular season to play, when Sanders arrives, including home games against Perth, Adelaide and Townsville.
