Scotland captain Gareth Murray has admitted he will keep his options open on agreeing a new deal with Glasgow Rocks. Sorting out a fresh contract for the Arbroath-born forward is expected to be high on the to-do list of coach Sterling Davis after several of the Rocks imported stars jetted out of the country without firm offers on the table.
However Murray is likely to receive interest from elsewhere in the UK and overseas, if he chooses to move on.
He said: “We’ll see what happens. The club will be out looking for players and trying to get the best team together. Who knows what my position will be? I could be back here or I could be elsewhere.”
Meanwhile Scottish teenage Ali Fraser has been handed a shot at making it in the USA after landing a scholarship to the University of Maine.
The 6’7” Falkirk Fury forward, 17, was the second-highest scorer in the Scottish League this season and produced a dominating display to lead John Bunyan’s men to the Scottish Cup last month.
“We are very excited to have Alasdair join our basketball programme here at Maine,” Maine head Coach Ted Woodward said. “He is an extremely gifted player and a wonderful student and person. We are thrilled for him to be a Black Bear.”
