Rainmen Add Big Man
Just days after the team announced Chris Terrell as the teams new coach, the Rainmen also added former USC Trojan James Blasczyk.
Coach Terrell has had many stops around the world coaching at the highest levels, most recently with Romania, China and Mexico. He also served as a head assistant player development coach in the NBA with the Atlanta Hawks.
“It is a great honor to be selected as the new head coach of the Halifax Rainmen” Said coach Terrrell. “I want to thank Mr Levingston and everyone in the organization. I am looking forward to living and working in Halifax this season as we diligently work together to give the great fans a team they can be very proud of”.
The roster is still far from set, but with the league draft upcoming on Aug. 17-19 a few more items may be set in place. Coach Terrell is expected to be onhand for the draft.
Not one to wait around though, Andre Levingston has already begun adding to the squad. The 7-foot-1 Blasczyk caught the eye of Levinston during summer tournament play. He’s coming off 2 years with USC in the NCAA and shold be a physical presence down low.
Officially signed my first professional basketball contract. Going to spend the next 7 months in Halifax Canada .. Couldn't be more excited.

“One thing led to another,” Blasczyk said. “[Levingston] is in my corner, and I decided that would be the best route to go.”
