Brisbane Bullets and free agency
BULLETS MVP winner Travis Trice is no certainty to return to Brisbane next season as the club prepares for one of the most frenzied NBL free agency periods in recent history.
Wooden spooner Brisbane has four players under contract for the 2018-19 NBL season — veteran guard Adam Gibson and the young trio of Tom Fullarton, Will Magnay and Tyrell Harrison.
Centre Tom Jervis has an option in his contract to return and is weighing up his decision.
The rest of the 2017-18 squad — including US import Trice, fellow American Stephen Holt and Boomers forward Daniel Kickert — will hit the free agency market which opens two weeks after the NBL grand final series.
The club is also monitoring Cameron Bairstow's rehabilitation from a knee reconstruction.Full story
