The National Basketball League of Canada squad announced the signing of shooting guard Greg Plummer on Monday.
"Greg is a big time signing for us. Not only is he one of the best shooters in this league, he was one of our vocal leaders on this team last season,” said head coach Joe Salerno.
“Greg came up with big play after big play for us. When it came down to crunch time, there was no question No. 21 was going to be on the floor.
Plummer averaged 17 points, 4.9 rebounds, and three assists per game during the Storm's 2012-2013 season.

“He has one of the highest basketball IQ's I have ever coached and an unbelievable work ethic,” Salerno said. “Greg is coming back here with one goal in mind this season, to win an NBL championship. He is very focused, and ready to get back to work."
The six-foot-four, 195-pound Brooklyn native was one of only four players in the league last season to record a triple-double, scoring 18 points, 10 rebounds, and 10 assists in the Storm's loss to Windsor.
