The NBL's Sydney Kings have pulled off a massive coup, signing US College forward star, Perry Ellis.

Ellis averaged 12.5 points and 5.8 rebounds in his 144 games for the Kansas Jayhawks.

The 23-year-old played in four NCAA tournaments and helped his side to an 'Elite Eight' finals appearance in 2016. During his senior year, he was named in the Second Team All-American squad and the First Team All-Conference side.

He is Sydney's first import signing for next season.
