(WINDSOR, ON) – The Express have announced a trade with the Cape Breton Highlanders on Monday to return Shaquille Keith to the Windsor lineup in exchange for Clinton Springer-Williams.

Keith returns to the Express after playing his rookie season in 2015-16 with Windsor. His rights were traded in the off-season to Cape Breton for a 1st round draft choice in the 2016 NBL Canada Canadian Draft. The draft choice was used to select Alex Campbell, who has since been released.

So far, in 19 games this season with Cape Breton, Keith is averaging 16.1 points, 5.5 rebounds, and 3.2 assists in 28.1 minutes per game.

The Brampton native will replace Springer-Williams in the Canadian roster spot.

During a meeting against the Express on February 17, Keith dropped 18 points and added 10 rebounds in a 113-92 Cape Breton loss to Windsor. In his first game back with Windsor, the guard scored just 2 points and 3 boards in 17 minutes of play, during a 98-95 Windsor loss to Orangeville, on March 4.

The Express (10-13) are 1 game ahead of 4th place Kitchener-Waterloo and 0.5 games behind 2nd place Orangeville. Their next meeting will be at home against the Niagara River Lions on March 15. Tip off is at 7:00pm.
