Breakers expect to make some signings

Kirk Penney may be leaving the Breakers for a Spanish club but the boss of the National Basketball League champions hopes he'll return to see out his career in Auckland.

Penney signed a contract with the Madrid-based side Baloncesto Fuenlabrada yesterday.

But the Tall Blacks captain's exit opens up opportunities for Breakers general manager Richard Clarke, who expects to announce some import signings in the next few days.

Richard Clarke says this season's American import Gary Wilkinson is among the names in contention for next season's Breakers team.
