The New Zealand Breakers are more confident of retaining the services of marquee shooting guard Kirk Penney after the American NBA lockout. Tall Black Penney has a clause in his Breakers contract which allows him to explore opportunities in Europe until August 1 by which time he must confirm with the Australian national league champions for another season. New Zealand Breakers chief executive Richard Clarke said they were 90 per cent certain of having Penney back on the roster for next season. Once that decision was settled the Breakers could then confirm their imported players.
Word is Penney and Abercrombie are both keen to expand their hoops horizons and take their talents to Europe or even the NBA if the big boys will have them. Penney gave it a tilt with the Spurs this season, but came up short; while Abercrombie is enticed by the lure of the major leagues in Europe. Penney, it’s said, is contemplating one last shot at the big time as he continues to have his NBA ambitions thwarted.
The NZ Breakers have confirmed franchise player Kirk Penney will not be back for their NBL home opener next Wednesday night and that his return date is indefinite. Penney has remained in the United States after being waived by the San Antonio Spurs last Monday in his quest to earn a place in the NBA. He is now investigating his options elsewhere in the league. The Breakers say Penney has not given up hope of being picked up by another NBA club and has not yet shifted his mindset to returning to New Zealand.
