Saints add Shea Ili and BJ Anthony 03 Mar 2016

Wellington Saints have further bolstered their lineup with the addition of Tall Black Shea Ili and former Tall Black BJ Anthony

Ili is currently with the NZ Breakers while they defend their ANBL title, and BJ is currently with the Saints squad as they prepare for there first game next Thursday at home against the Waitakere Rangers.

Ili is argubaly one of the most explosive athletes in the competition, and will now lead the Saints guard at the point guard position. Last season he was a back up for the Southland Sharks under Kevin Braswell, who will now mentor him as a coach.

Shea will have a battle on his hands when he faces former Saints point guard Lindsay Tait, who has been the best point guard in the competition for the last decade and is now with the Rangers.

BJ is still recovering from an achilles injury which put him out last season, but will be looking to repeat the success he had when he played for the 2013 Saints championship side.
