The Canadian Elite Basketball League’s Hamilton Honey Badgers have re-signed former NBA player Joel Anthony as a player development consultant.
Anthony, from Montreal, spent 10 years as a centre in the NBA from 2007-17. He spent his first seven seasons with the Miami Heat, helping them win NBA titles in 2012 and 2013.
He also played for Boston, Detroit and San Antonio.
Anthony also was a long-time member of Canada’s men’s senior basketball team.
The CEBL held a shortened 2020 season due to the COVID-19 pandemic in the form of a summer tournament in St. Cahtharines, Ont. Hamilton went 3-3 in the preliminary stage and was defeated 76-75 by Fraser Valley in the tournament semifinals.
