Durham Wildcats have signed American 24-year-old point-guard Devin Ginty.

He spent last season in the Finnish top flight with Torpan Pojat and played 27 games, averaging 14.8 points with a 41.7% three-point success rate.

In the US, California-born Ginty played top-division college basketball for the University of San Diego, captaining the Toreros in 2011-12, his final season.

"I'm excited. I want to give the fans a spark - they can expect 100% effort whenever I step on court," he said.
