Worcester Wolves Director of Basketball Paul James surprised home fans at Friday’s game against Surrey United by announcing the return of one of last year’s successful squad, further strengthening his table-topping team.

6 foot 6 inch forward Kai Williams recently ended a brief spell at Cheshire Phoenix, and James was quickly on the case to see if Kai could make it a pair of Williams in Worcester.

Elder brother Jamal has already proved a valuable acquisition for the Wolves, albeit that he is currently sidelined through injury.

James talked about the re-signing of the 25-year-old, saying: “When I knew Kai was available, it was an easy call to discuss him coming back to Worcester. It’s great to have him back; he’ll be an extra threat for us from the perimeter. We all know what he brought to the team last year, so if he can do that again for the remainder of the season it will certainly help us.”

Williams is also excited about returning to Worcester, saying: “I’m happy to be back and looking forward to the season. Everyone is really talented on this team and obviously playing alongside my brother is something very special and I’m fortunate to have that opportunity.”

Williams announced his arrival back in the city with a three-pointer on his very first touch of the ball against Surrey, before going on to hit ten further points, as well as grabbing a useful six rebounds. Talking about his performance he added: “The way this team is set up with guys like Alex, Zaire, Will and Andreas demanding a lot of attention, makes it easier to play out there. It means there are a lot of open shots to be had and I was able to knock a lot of those down tonight.”

There will be a double of matches coming up over the Christmas period where Williams will get the chance to further bed back into the team. On Friday 20 December Wolves welcome title-challengers the London Lions to the University of Worcester Arena, before Birmingham Knights make the short trip over to Worcester on Saturday 28 December.
