United Sign Long

Melbourne United have replaced their hole left by Josh Boone’s departure earlier this off season, by signing former New Zealand Breakers forward Shawn Long for the 2019-2020 season.

Long had a successful 2018-19 season for the Breakers, averaging 18 ppg, 9 rpg and 1.5 bpg whilst being added to the All-NBL Second Team.

Long joins an already talented United team that includes former Boomers Chris Goulding and David Barlow. Tall Blacks big man Alex Pledger. Up and coming star Mitch McCarron and import Melo Trimble.
