Manchester Giants have released British forward Richard Bell.

Bell, 26, spent the past 18 months at the club making 42 appearances, averaging 19.5 minutes per game this season.

Coach Danny Byrne said: “It wasn’t an easy decision, great guy, but we needed to make changes unfortunately and professional basketball can be cruel sometimes.

“He’s a great guy and I want to thank him for his time here and I wish him well for the future.”

Everyone at the club wishes Richard all the best.
