Next Stop On The Eric Devendorf World Tour...Australia

As soon as he's done re-writing the New Zealand basketball record books, "controversial" "troubled" "problem-child" "bad boy" Eric Devendorf is heading to nearby Australian where he'll play for the Melbourne Tigers.

In a major coup the Melbourne Tigers have added 7’2" Australian Boomers squad member Luke Nevill and promising young American guard Eric Devendorf to their 2010/11 NBL roster. In a further boost, the club has also signed up and coming SEABL forward Lucas Walker for his first season in the NBL.

Tigers Head Coach Al Westover knows that anytime you can get a guy who played at Syracuse College, you have to go for it.

"Devendorf is an exciting talent who was a four year starter at Syracuse College in the US. He is a great athlete and will play as a combo guard in the two spot, and will also be able to play in the point position if needed. He is currently leading the New Zealand league in scoring and will provide perimeter punch and excitement, we see him as a big piece of the puzzle for the season ahead."

If you're gonna play ball in Australia, the Tigers are a good squad to play for.  They've won four NBL titles, including 2006 and 2008 and have played for the championship in four of the last five seasons.  They also have the Dodo Dancers, which is nice.

The NBL season begins in October, perfect for Devo since he's hoping the Saints will still be playing though the end of June for the New Zealand NBL title.
