Manchester Giants and Birmingham Bullets hope they made their last transatlantic transactions of the summer yesterday, when they completed their rosters with new Americans for the Budweiser League season beginning on 13 September, writes Richard Taylor.

The Giants' new coach, Jim Brandon, who left Sheffield Sharks earlier in the summer, has signed the 6ft 4in, 22-year-old guard Brett Larrick, one of the leading scorers in the top college division with Charleston Southern University. The Bullets' new coach, Mike Finger, has signed H L Coleman, one of the top 10 rebounders in college basketball last season.
