The Perth Wildcats have completed their roster for the new NBL season by signing 206cm American centre Dario Hunt.
Hunt has played the majority of his professional career in Europe, and the 30-year-old is looking forward to plying his trade in Australia.
"It's a new opportunity, a new country I haven't been to before and, to be playing for a great club, is something I'm really looking forward to," Hunt said.
"I play with a lot of passion and a lot of heart. I love to compete each and every chance I get on the court. I try to make as many plays as possible for the team.
Hunt played with Wildcats MVP Bryce Cotton in 2018 at Brescia Leonessa in the top-tier Italian league.
Cotton believes Hunt will fit well into the Wildcats' system.
"Dario's really easy to get along with but, most importantly, a great player with a great IQ," Cotton said.
"He's going to be an integral part of our team this year, for sure."
Hunt is the team's third import, joining Cotton and last year's grand-final MVP Terrico White.
