The Brisbane Bullets have added 29 year old US Guard Jeremy Kendle to their roster for the remainder of the season.
Indiana native Kendle played college basketball for Bellarmine and his professional career has taken him to Morocco and Switzerland, and to the 2016 MVP title for the Bendigo Braves in SEABL.
Kendle was set to join the Bullets prior to the New Year’s Eve clash with Cairns before being ruled out with a low grade calf strain. While he has yet to recover fully from the injury Kendle will take his place in the Bullets roster from this Friday’s clash with Illawarra in order to fulfil the NBL’s 8 game criteria to be eligible for the playoffs. His on court involvement will be assessed on a game by game basis.
Kendle’s addition brings the Bullets roster back to 11 active players, with Isaih Tueta also remaining in the squad. Matt Kenyon is expected to return from his ankle injury for the Hawks game.
The Bullets head off to Wollongong tomorrow ahead of their Friday night clash against the Hawks and will return home to the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre to take on the Breakers this Sunday, 15 January.
