One of Coventry's
most successful basketball stars is returning to the city after three years.
Jimmy Smith helped Mercia Health Benefits Crusaders to the league
and cup double four years ago, and is now returning after a spell at Plymouth.
Crusaders boss Dip Donaldson has negotiated a deal to bring Smith back as assistant
player-coach to Marcus Garvey, something which has delighted Donaldson.
"Jimmy has played for Plymouth for the past three years and he has had a
tremendous amount of success with them.
"He is an excellent perimeter shooter. We have a lot of big guys here this season
and he can help guys like Dylon Bogg turn their game around."
Smith will help with training and be given special responsibility for watching over
younger members of the squad.
