Bears face Rodman investigation
Dennis Rodman
Rodman wants to return to Brighton
Brighton Bears are being investigated by the British Basketball League after claims that Dennis Rodman's appearance for the club was against the rules.

Rodman, 44, scored four points in 26 minutes in the Bears' 91-88 win over Guildford Heat on Saturday.

Teams are allowed three work permit players per game in the BBL.

But Brighton fielded Rodman and their existing work permit players, Americans Jerry Williams and Terrence McGee and their Barbadian skipper Andrew Alleyne.

"We were delighted to see that Dennis Rodman took part in the BBL game on Saturday and that UK fans have had the opportunity to see him play," said a BBL statement.

"However, we are aware that allegations have been made against Brighton Bears for breaching player eligibility rules in this fixture.

"We will be requesting that the Bears supply further information in our investigation into this matter."
