Also, Nate Renfro re-upped his contract.

After spending the last three years in Japan, Robert Carter is back in the BCL as the first addition to the squad of Bnei Ofek Dist Herzeliya. Chris Babb, Sandy Cohen, Quinton Hooker, Maurice Kemp, Yair Kravitz, Dori Sahar, and Andy Van Vliet are all returning for the Israel outfit.

Forward Manny Patterson penned a one-year contract with an option for an additional season with Karhu.
