Highlanders Basketball Team Sign Shooting Guard and Point Guard

The Cape Breton Highlanders professional basketball franchise have signed player Morgan Lewis (pictured above).  The 29 year-old Lewis is a 6.5", 195lb shooting guard from Plainesville, Ohio.

Lewis was once was the first overall pick in the first ever NBL draft in 2011.  He is a 3-time all-star and won a championship with the London Lightning.  An elite shooting guard in the NBL, Lewis led the league in steals in 2012, and is a strong scoring threat.
Highlanders President and General Manager, Tyrone Levingston, said, "I'm excited to have Morgan bring his veteran experience to our rookie team."

Also signing with the Highlanders is 5'9", 165lb Hank Thorns from Las Vegas, Nevada. The 27-year-old point-guard played at Texas Christian University and in 2015 signed with the NBA's Los Angeles Clippers.  After playing  preseason games with the Clippers, Thorns was released to the Maine Red Claws of the NBA Development League.
Levingston added, "Hank is highly regarded by personnel in the NBA Development League where they tell me that we can't go wrong with Hank on our team. The point-guard role is key to the success of any team and I look forward to seeing what Hank is going to bring to that role."

The Cape Breton Highlanders Franchise is one of 10 professional basketball teams in the National Basketball League of Canada.  The Highlanders’ ownership group is comprised of successful business and community leaders in Cape Breton, and led by President and General Manager Tyrone Levingston. The Highlanders inaugural season begins December 2016.  Season tickets are on sale now - find out more
