Taipans announce injury replacement: Hyrum Harris

The CQUniversity Cairns Taipans have signed HYRUM HARRIS as a nominated injury replacement player. The 6'6" forward flies to Melbourne today to join the team, but he will not suit up tonight. Harris will return with the team to Cairns ahead of the Easter home game against United.

The 24-year-old was a development player with the Illawarra Hawks last season, playing alongside NBA Draft Pick LaMelo Ball. He shot a team high 61 per cent from the field in his 16 appearances.

The New Zealand native has also represented the Tall Blacks and was selected for last year’s FIBA Asia Cup qualifier against the Australian Boomers.

"H” has played five seasons in the NZNBL, previously with the Super City Rangers, Hawkes Bay Hawks and Southland Sharks. Most recently, Harris averaged 15.1 points and 11.7 rebounds for the Manawatu Jets.

He will return to the Bay Hawks in the 2021 NZNBL season, joining Taipans guard Jarrod Kenny who recently signed for the upcoming NBL off-season.

The Taipans remain without Kouat Noi and Majok Deng, with Noi’s recovery expected to last up to another 11 weeks while Deng is set to return in 3-4 weeks.

A player with some real hunger and fight. Also gives them an opportunity to open up the key way for Oliver when he is on the floor. For this season I think he will deliver more than what they were getting out of Noi.

Surprised no one picked him up earlier this year. He could become a real solid bench player in the NBL.

Not all getting big minutes but the highest number of kiwis to play. In NZ development is largely school based with Westlake Boys fielding the most. Suspect that there could be more new faces (not necessary higher numbers) in the next 4 years as more finish college in USA.
FYI perthworld I'm a kiwi living in Perth.

Thanks for last correction knowall.
I'm definitely not Perthworld, I am a kiwi who lives in Perth ( since 2006). My allegiance to the mighty Wildcats dates back to early 90s when I spent school years here.

Tyrell Harrison from Brisbane Bullets.
I think only Adelaide don't have kiwi connections, though they have in the past.

Hey Perth Fan didn't know about Tyrell Harrison checking on his bio he attended school in Aussie so assume that he was either born in NZ similar to Mojave or parents were as I see he was part of the Tall Blacks program

I don't think we’ll see Fotu anytime soon. Waardenburg could be lethal in the NBL if he gets stronger.

True. Forgot about Dan. Quinn Clinton will probably find his way into the NBL too.
