The list of other players, who all have British passport but never been selected to any of British national teams:

   #1.

San Pablo Inmobiliaria Miraflores Burgos (LEB Gold) agreed terms with 21-year old British international swingman Morayo Soluade (196-89kg-95) on loan from Unicaja. He will still stay in Spain where he played last season at RETAbet Gipuzkoa BC San Sebastian in Spanish Liga Endesa.
