Breakers don't use option on Kerron Johnson.
The NZ Breakers have effectively released Kerron Johnson after notifying him that they will not be picking up the 1 year option they had left on his contract for next season.
The 23 year old PG in his first pro season averaged 14 points and 4 assists per game but struggled with full court presses and was inconsistent especially defensively but had flashes of brilliance and looked great in transition.
There is still plenty of talk around Auckland of Cedric Jackson returning and Breakers General Manager Richard Clarke has confirmed that the club has put an offer to him for the 2014-15 season.
Early reports indicate Jackson returning to Europe but at least NZ have put an offer in.
The new NBL Vegas Summer League will be a great opportunity for clubs to find the next Jackson or Ennis and I hope if Cedric's off the cards that Vickerman and co at least pick up an athletic PG who is 6.2"-6.3" ish so i don't have to watch him continuously dribble into traps.
Wilkinson is also unlikely to return to the Breakers next season. It will be interesting to see who they replace him with.
The Croc's Brian Conklin has recently returned to play with the Southland Sharks in the NZNBL with Breakers Assistant Coach Pauly Henare and mentioned to media how much it meant to him to get his first pro gig courtesy of Henare.
He has a bit of mongrel to him and can defend so there would be worse options.
