36ers sign first Indian Vishesh Bhriguvanshi
ADELAIDE 36ers have signed Indian national captain Vishesh Bhriguvanshi - a.k.a "VB9" - to their extended roster for the 2017-18 NBL season.
Bhriguvanshi, 25 and a 192cm guard, will attend the Dream Basketball Academy during his season in Adelaide, just as new Oklahoma City Thunder guard/forward Terrance Ferguson did through 2016-17.
And he is expected to be on the roster when the Sixers head to Singapore for the Merlion Cup in September.
Bhriguvanshi is the historic first Indian player to be signed by an NBL club and will not only participate in the Dream Basketball Academy's 2017-18 program and train with the 36ers but will be eligible to play if he replaces an injured player.
