Finn Delany and Rob Loe re-sign with Breakers

From :

Finn Delany has signed a two-year extension to keep him contracted to the Sky Sport Breakers until the end of the 2022 NBL season while Tall Blacks Centre Rob Loe has agreed terms to stay at the club until 2023.

28-year-old Loe has come back impressively from his serious skull fracture midseason to average a career high 9.6 points and 4.2 rebounds over 20 games. 

24-year-old Delany is in the form of his life averaging 12.6 points, at an average of 47 percent from the floor, and 6.2 rebounds a game.

The 6’7” former Nelson College student has had four ‘double-doubles’ in the final month of the regular season, as well as producing the game winning bucket against the Bullets in Brisbane.

“I re-signed with the Breakers because I love this club,” said Delany.

“I feel I have unfinished business here and I want to win a championship here. I’ve got a lot more to grow in this league and this team and I want to accomplish something special here.”

Breakers owner Matt Walsh says securing the signatures of both Delany and Loe has been one of his top priorities moving forward.

“To get Finn and Rob to sign to the club shows the commitment by the Breakers to kiwi talent alongside Tom (Abercrombie) and Corey (Webster),” he said.

“It really shows the spine of our team, the backbone of our team is going to be New Zealand talent and those are the guys who make us go, and it put us in the driver’s seat in terms of building our roster for next season.”

Director of Basketball Dan Shamir says he is also rapt to secure both players to long term deals.

“The commitment of Tom Abercrombie, Corey Webster, Finn Delany and Rob Loe long term means it will allow us to have continuity.

“Continuity is one of the most important things for me as a coach.”

Delany has played more than 100 games for the Breakers since 2015 and has been a Tall Black since 2017; he last represented New Zealand at the 2019 FIBA Basketball World Cup.

Loe has played 112 NBL games which includes a brief stint at the Cairns Taipans last season.

He has been a member of the Tall Blacks for more than a decade.
