The signing of Brian Barbour could signal the end of BJ Holmes with Sheffield Sharks.
Holmes, who was named MVP of the BBL Trophy final victory last season, was a popular figure with Sharks fans but with the club already recruiting guards Barbour and Nick Lewis, both of whom have British passports, it may mean that the Texan is overlooked for other American players.
However, the Texan was well thought of by players and management at the club and could yet be seen again in a Sharks vest.
More signings are expected soon. Skipper Mike Tuck, Barbour and Lewis have all been announced this month.
