The Southern Huskies return to the NZNBL based in Auckland

The Huskies franchise returned with a relocation to Auckland, but the stigma from their time in Tasmania may take a while to fade.

How the Southern Huskies shocked Tasmania and returned in Auckland

Interesting to see the same ownership group behind it, plus some of their business interests that is resulting in all NZNBL being live streamed to a global audience behind an online subscription paywall (at a good price mind you).

NZNBL's 6-week competition will be one of the first in the world to return.

Beware that ownership group for sure. Justin Nelson has a reputation and does Hickey and Sutton.

Doesn't help the Bball Tas & the NBL basically gave them the short shift!

Would hardly call Lacey's signing a major coup. The guy is the equivalent to an U18 coach in Australia, what would he know about being a GM??
