Basketball: Corey Webster departs NZ Breakers by mutual consent

Corey Webster has left NZ Breakers, ending his fourth stint at the Kiwi ANBL club.

Webster, 32, has parted ways with the Breakers by mutual consent, with two years still remaining on his deal.

The shooting guard has been a key figure in the Breakers' side over 11 seasons with the club, notching 236 games with the Kiwi side.

Webster sits fifth on the Breakers' all-time most capped players list, behind Tom Abercrombie, Mika Vukona, Paul Henare and Alex Pledger.

"Corey is one of the most decorated figures in our club's history," club owner Matt Walsh says.

"He has been critical to the success of the club in the last 11 seasons and everyone wishes him the best for the rest of his career."

Webster won three ANBL titles with the Breakers, part of the 2011, 2013 and 2015 championship winning squads.

Website Eurobasket report that Webster has signed with Egyptian side Al Ettehad Alexandria.

The Breakers finished eighth in the 2020/21 ANBL season, with the new 2021/22 campaign to begin on November 18.
