Just days after announcing the signing of 6 feet 10 inch Ian Salter, Worcester Wolves have now added another big body to bolster their frontcourt. American centre/power forward Will Creekmore stands just an inch shorter than Salter and comes to Worcester carrying some serious credentials.
24 year old Creekmore played briefly last season in the NBA Development League for Tulsa 66ers, a team affiliated to NBA high-fliers, the Oklahoma City Thunder. Prior to that, he averaged solid numbers of eight points and four rebounds in the German Pro A League for Ehinghen Steeples.
Growing up, Creekmore attended Thomas Edison High School in Tulsa where he led the entire state of Oklahoma in rebounding during his junior and senior campaigns, concluding his stay there as the school’s all-time top rebounder. He went on to join one of the top college basketball programs, playing for the Missouri State Bears. In his senior year at Missouri he posted impressive statistics of eleven points and seven rebounds a game.
Worcester Wolves’ Director of Basketball Paul James revealed he had been chasing Creekmore for a while, saying: “Will has been on my radar for some time. Once I learnt he was available, I knew he would be a good fit for the Wolves.”
“He is a big body who can score steadily and will grab plenty of boards for us,” added James.
Creekmore is looking forward to coming to Worcester, saying: “I am extremely excited about the opportunity to play this season in the BBL for Worcester. Coach James and the rest of the staff have done a great job putting together a competitive roster. I look forward to doing my part in helping the Wolves compete for a championship this season.”
