When the government expects the fall of their budget leakage, it appears that New Zealand Breakers are also investigating their own "big leak".
Finally, Breakersne reported rumors of their major international news in bed yesterday and announced signing of US point guard RJ Hampton – a player widely considered to be the first round of elections in the NBA draft next year.
The 18-year-old is a very spied talent and turned his back on top basketball schools including Duke, Kansas and Kentucky to play in New Zealand.
While the signing is excellent news for four-hour NBL masters, the kiwi fans were scoffing at the prospect of another player arriving on New Zealand's shores during the construction of the announcement.

Talking about Barstool Sports & # 39; Pardon My Take & # 39; podcast, Walsh put the record straight on how speculation came to show he was the one who planted Anthony's rumor in an attempt to find a mole in the organization.
"I had to throw some misinformation to identify the leak," Walsh said. "We are still working through it.
" Basically, I put it on our group WhatsApp. Everyone asked what the big global news should be, so I put a picture of Hoody Carmelo & # 39; up and approx. 10 minutes later it was the whole of New Zealand media.
"We have a big leak in the organization, so we are now working through. I think that all things considered, we did a good job of keeping it contained."
Despite being not yet found the pier, the "leak" was only an addition to more hype for the message, especially in New Zealand.
After yesterday's official announcement, Hampton said he was looking forward to joining Breakers.
"It's an honor to be part of the NBL's Next Stars program and join a team with such a successful story as Breakers," Hampton said.
"It will be the perfect next step for me as I continue to fulfill my dream of playing in the NBA".
