Tall Blacks star Mika Vukona is coming home after signing with the New Zealand Breakers.

The 27-year-old power forward played for the Auckland-based club from 2004 to 2008, before stints with the South Dragons, where he won an NBL title, and Gold Coast Blaze.

Breakers General Manager, Richard Clarke, says they're thrilled to have lured Vukona back home, subject to Basketball Australia approval, where he'll line up alongside the likes of Kirk Penney and CJ Bruton.

Vukona is currently playing for the Nelson Giants in the New Zealand NBL.
