(WINDSOR, ON) – The Windsor Express continues to show their commitment to having a championship calibre team. The Express recently added Stefan Bonneau, Chris Commons and Lester Prosper to their roster.

“In an effort to remain consistent with the National Basketball League of Canada’s level of talent, since day one we have searched high and low to stock our roster with competitive players. We continue to do this with our newly acquired players,” said Dartis Willis, owner and CEO of the Windsor Express.

The Windsor Express has acquired Stefan Bonneau, a 5′ 10″, 170 pound guard from Middletown New York.

In his senior year at C.W Post, Bonneau averaged 21.7 points per game, 3.9 rebounds per game and 4.3 assists per game.

Darryl Greene, director of player personnel  states, “His dynamic scoring ability, deep range and 44 inch vertical make Stefan a great addition to the Express roster.”

Windsor Express has continued to bolster their roster with 6′ 9″, 225 pound G/F, Chris Commons. Commons recently returned from Finland where he averaged 16 points per game, 6.5 rebounds per game and 1.4 block shots per game. In 2012, he was named 2nd Team All-USA along with 2012 NBL Canada MVP, Gabe Freeman. Last season Chris was voted 2012 PBL Forward of the Year while averaging 19.3 points per game, 5.8 rebounds per game, 2.0 assists per game and 1.8 block shots per game.

As a third addition, the Express adds Lester Prosper, a former Moncton Miracle, and the second leader in rebounds of the National Basketball League of Canada. He will play centre for the Windsor Express, pending league approval.
