Basketball: Penney re-signs with Breakers
New 9:45AM Saturday December 22, 2007

New Zealand basketball international Kirk Penney has given a boost to the NZ Breakers ANBL team by re-signing for two years.

The prolific scoring 27-year-old, one of only two New Zealanders to have played in the NBA, has been seduced by the attractions of home and motivated by a desire to help build a successful club.

"I believe in the team and what the club is striving to do," Penney said.

The Tall Black is averaging almost 23 points a game during his debut ANBL season - second only to hot shot Brisbane Bullet Ebi Ere.

Penney said he needed to make his intentions clear and trust that everyone else had the same passion to see the Breakers realise their potential.

Penney said his agent had a number of European teams interested in short-term contracts during the ANBL off-season.

The prospect of extending his contract had been in the back of his mind for a while because he loved being home, Penney said.

The North Shore native left to play American college basketball in 1999.

We should be making the same moves to secure Balinger for the next few years. He has proven beyond any doubt that he is qaulity. The Sixers have to get out of this mode where they wait until players have been atracted elsewhere and then it is too late - like we did with Rychart, Foreman, Holmes, Ingles, Newley (when Townsville got in first)

Perhaps over the next 2 years the coach could teach him to take "good shots" and not just "every shot".Quality player but very selfish

44% FG, 43% 3P, 82% FT. Hard to argue with that. Seems to have got better with his shot selection over time to me.

The Age has the news too
