Kieron Achara, the Great Britain internationalist, has left Glasgow Rocks, less than two months into the British Basketball League season.

The Stirling-born forward, who has been one of the leading performers in the BBL so far, was on a short-term deal after joining from the Spanish club Manresa in the summer.
