Canterbury Rams co-captain Ethan Rusbatch is chasing much more than a National Basketball League (NBL) title this season.
Fresh off spending the last ANBL season as a development player with the New Zealand Breakers, Rusbatch is after a full-time contract with the Auckland-based side.
Rusbatch, who turns 25 next month, is too old to again snap up one of three development contracts on offer for the 2017-18 season.
“I think it’s the next step out of [the NBL]. There’s always Europe and stuff like that, but it would be good to hopefully get another look at the Breakers,” Rusbatch said.
