Breakers sign Dan Fotu from St Mary’s

Anyone know how his stats and play from College will translate to the NBL?

Will the Breakers now target Isaac Fotu?

a good 6'7 defender in the post.

He was a 7th or 8th guy for a team that over achieved and made the tournament, wasn't ever asked to do more than hustle and play defence over his time there. Probably projects as a lesser version of a Dillon Boucher type.

Given the struggles the Breakers have been through over the past few seasons it's impressive that they've gone out and got a signature, someone who is willing to go through what they've been going through for two years now. Given NZ's modest talent he's probably a guy right on the Tall Blacks cusp so in those terms he's a big signing who probably could have gone to another NBL club in the right situation. Really hope they are able to play at home soon.

Good signing. Solid 6'7 4/3 that will work hard. Give time to develop and will be a solid player for a long time

Glad Dan Fotu signed. I just don't know how two 6'7' combo forwards without a jump shot (Galloway and Fotu) can co-exist on the same bench. I don't know if he'll be a key bench guy - suspect he's taking Isaac Davidson's role at the end of the bench.

I think I read the Breakers didn't take up Galloway's option.

SpatialJam's NBL transaction tracker said Isaac Davidson had his "club option declined" and Kyrin Galloway "opt out/cut".

Rob Loe
Sam Timmins
Tom Abercrombie
Dan Fotu

The above players are currently contracted for next season with NZ along with Hugo Besson & Ousmane Dieng who will probably be drafted and then their contracts bought out.
