Bullets have re-signed Stephen Holt
BRISBANE continue to stockpile their arsenal for the 2018-19 season with US import Stephen Holt set to rejoin the Bullets and NBL legend Sam Mackinnon beefing-up his coaching role.
After claiming the last two wooden spoons, Brisbane left no stone unturned in the free agency period signing four Boomers — Cameron Bairstow, Cam Gliddon, Jason Cadee and Matt Hodgson — and five-time NBL title winner Mika Vukona.
The considerable reloading effort is also poised to net Holt who had an indifferent year for the Bullets last season with 10 points, three rebounds and one assist per game.
Holt was a genuine star for Melbourne United in the 2015-16 season when he was point guard for the star-studded powerhouse.
Currently playing in Poland, Holt would return to a point guard role coming off the bench for Brisbane compared to the shooting guard/small forward position he played last season with fellow American Travis Trice running the point.
Holt was used more as a defensive stopper and a shooter and slasher from the wing but should flourish if he returns as a ball distributor leading the second unit.
Brisbane have a limited budget for the back-up point guard role with the vacant import spot at small forward set to command a greater slice of the salary cap.
But Holt and his partner enjoyed living in south east Queensland as well as the Bullets' culture which will aid in his return.
Meanwhile, Mackinnon will boost his coaching role as Brisbane pump more resources into their off-court operations.
