Abercrombie to chase NBA dream

1:29 pm on 9 June 2013

The Breakers swingman, Tom Abercrombie, has been given the club's blessing to try and get an NBA basketball contract in the United States.

Abercrombie will leave next week for a tilt at the NBA, with tryouts scheduled in San Antonio, Houston and Milwaukee before a stint in the Las Vegas NBA Summer League.

The 26-year-old is signed to the Breakers for another two seasons, but has an out-clause in his contract allowing him to leave if he secures a deal with an NBA team.

Abercrombie will return to Auckland for the next Australian NBL season if he's unable to earn a contract in the US.
