Chester Jets have completed the signing of American forward Louis McCullough from Mexican side Astros.
McCullough, who stands 6ft 6ins, is the half-brother of Minnesota Timberwolves forward Kevin Garnett, one of the top players in the NBA.
His cousin Shammond Williams also plays in the NBA, for the Los Angeles Lakers.
The Jets, searching for their fifth win after 17 British Basketball League games, hope to field their new signing in Saturday's trip to Plymouth Raiders.
The Jets lost American signings Terrence Robinson and Maurice Hargrow during the Christmas break when the pair returned to the USA.
The registration rules mean that only one of those players can be replaced, as McCullough is the Jets' fifth work permit player of the season.
