Leicester Riders point guard Tack Minor will not be returning to the club for the second half of the season, after his contract was terminated by mutual consent. Personal issues have been cited as the reason for his departure.
The American has led the Riders in scoring this season and was second in the BBL in scoring and top the charts in assists.
Riders' coach Rob Paternostro said, "Tack has had some personal issues in the last few weeks which was affecting him and we all agreed that it would be best if he returned to the US to resolve these matters. He is an outstanding talent and the Riders wish him well for the future. Now it is up to the other guys to pull together, while we find a replacement."
Minor missed Riders controversial defeat at Worthing on Saturday due to flu. Paternostro is now looking to sign a replacement in time for Riders next game at home to Guildford Heat on January 9.
