Some new talent will be heading to the Ottawa basketball scene this summer.

The Ottawa BlackJacks of the Canadian Elite Basketball League (CEBL) have signed American guard Jared Wilson-Frame for the 2022 season, the team announced on Wednesday, May 11.

The Hartford, Connecticut native averaged 14.7 points, 4.0 rebounds, 3.4 assists and 30.5 minutes in 86 professional games with the National Basketball Association (NBA) G League, in Mexico and in Belgium.

During his time in the NBA G League, the six-foot-five guard averaged 16.0 points and 4.4 assists in 38 games playing for the Salt Lake City Stars

"Coming off a stellar season with Salt Lake City, Jared brings a combination of skills," said Jevohn Shepherd, general manager and vice-president of basketball operations with the BlackJacks. "He has an adept ability to shoot the three ball, get into the lane and create for his teammates."

The University of Pittsburgh alumnus played two seasons for the Panthers, after a two-year stint with Northwest Florida State Junior College.

"Jared's versatility gives us depth at a number of positions," said Shepherd. "A young talent that is truly just scratching his surface."

Last week, the BlackJacks launched their national campaign titled 'The Road to the Chip'. The campaign aims to celebrate the journey throughout the season, all the way to championship weekend taking place in Ottawa from August 12 until August 14. 

The BlackJacks season begins May 25 at home against the Fraser Valley Bandits.
