Newcastle Eagles have completed the signing of forward Olu Babalola.
Babalola moves to Eagles after being released by Swedish club Jamtland
The 24-year-old 6ft 6in Londoner played college basketball at Clemson before joining Italian club Roseto Basket and then Swedish club Jamtland.
"Olu is a tremendous player and continues our policy of recruiting quality British players," said Eagles managing director Paul Blake.
"It has been a long chase but we are delighted to finally get him and we hope he will fit straight in."
Babalola's signing comes too late for him to play for the Eagles in Sunday's BBL Trophy final against Leicester at Coventry Skydome.
But his return to this country offers England coach Peter Scantlebury extra cover for March's Commonwealth Games tournament.
Babalola scored 13 points on his England debut last summer in Tallinn in the first of two friendly internationals against Estonia.
