The Wellington Saints have signed American power forward Bryan Davis as their latest import for the 2014 National Basketball League season.

Davis replaces Ernest Scott, who was released this week to take up an opportunity with the Antigua Olympic team.

He is the fifth import to sign with Wellington this year, following Scott, JR Cadot, Elijah Obade (all released) and Brandon Bowman, who remains on the roster.

Davis, 27, arrives in Wellington tomorrow and will shore up the Saints' frontcourt as they prepare for Monday's game against Nick Horvath and the Manawatu Jets in Palmerston North.

At 2.06m and 113kg, Davis is a big unit and will shoulder a heavy load while BJ Anthony recovers from his calf injury.

Dallas-born, Davis played his college basketball at Texas A&M University, earning selection in the Big 12 All-Defensive Team in 2010.

After being overlooked in the 2010 NBA Draft, Davis has played professionally in Poland, Ukraine, China, Korea and, most recently, for the Reno Bighorns in the NBA's D-League.

Davis averaged 9.5 points and 6.1 rebounds, playing 20 minutes per game in 2013-14 for the Bighorns, whose parent club are the Sacramento Kings.

The 8-4 Saints are second on the NBL ladder behind Hawke's Bay.

What do you make of LeBron James' decision to return to Cleveland?

It's a good call and makes perfect sense. He's an Ohio boy

He should have stuck with the Miami Heat

Who cares? I'm all about the Breakers

Cavs fans will never forgive him for leaving them the first time
