The Melbourne Tigers have added former New Zealand Breakers guard Kevin Braswell to their roster for the Australian National Basketball League (ANBL).
Braswell, 33, was part of the 2010-11 championship-winning Breakers side.
Injury saw him miss the cut for the following season's Breakers campaign as they defended their crown, leaving Braswell to ply his trade for the Southland Sharks in the New Zealand NBL.
Tigers coach Chris Anstey said selecting an import guard was difficult due to several strong candidates but he was pleased that a quality signing would complete their roster.
"We admire the way that Kevin plays, including his ability to score and create for his teammates as the situation dictates," Anstey said.
"He has a strong body and his ability to swing into the shooting guard position really enhances our versatility."
Braswell tweeted his delight on Thursday.
"So thankful for the opportunity that has been given to me!!" he said.
Braswell was raised in Baltimore and enjoyed a thriving college basketball career at Georgetown University before trialling for the NBA at the Miami Heat.He has played in various European leagues.
