News from British Basketball League: Former BBL Cup winner Raheem May Thompson signs with the Worcester Wolves

Worcester Wolves had added BBL Finals experience to their roster, with the signing of Raheem May-Thompson.
The British 6’6” Forward joins following a season with Mulhouse Pfastatt in France and prior to that he spent 3 seasons in the BBL with Cheshire Phoenix and Leicester Riders.

In his final season with Cheshire, Raheem averaged 14.4 points and 4 rebounds a game. The same season he won the BBL Cup where the Phoenix defeated the Wolves in the Birmingham final. 

Raheem also represented at Great Britain U20 and England at U16 levels.

“I think this signing is a significant for the team on a number of levels,” said Worcester Head Coach Matt Newby.

“Raheem has proven output in the league and inevitably had a number of teams vying for his signature.

“The reason is simple, energy, output and the ability to influence the team’s fabric. He is very much a cultural architect, leading by example showing a strong level of pride in getting the job done. 

“He has the ability to defend multiple positions and generate extra possessions through his high-level output and game sense.

“I look forward to working with Raheem this season and welcome him to the Wolfpack.”

Raheem added, “I am excited to play at Worcester largely due to their fan base the Wolf Pack and the community in Worcester.

“Every time I have played against Worcester at their Arena in the past, home games would always be packed out.”
