Breakers name Development Players for 2013/14

The NZ Breakers Development Players have been named for 2013/14 and are Jack Salt, Luuk Witteveen, Duane Bailey and Alonzo Burton.

Jack Salt is the young 6 10" kid who made his debut for the Tall Blacks Vs the Boomers and Alonzo Burtons dad was a NZNBL Import much like Tai & Corey Websters Dad and BJ Anthony's.

Salt and Witteveen will take up non-nominated development player contracts, restricting them from travel to away games and any payment so as not to jeopardize a possible college role in the United States. Burton and Bailey will however be available to step up should any of the full time roster spots become available temporarily or otherwise during the season.

Wonder what the future holds for Bloxham? Never made much of an impact on the floor in NBL in his limited opportunities but more than holds his own in NZNBL.
Probably more interested in pawing Jamie Ridge (former All Black & Kiwi League International Mathew Ridges daughter)?

yup, he's been with the Breakers for their 3 Titles (signed 2010?).
