Breakers terminate contract with Corey Webster

8:49 am on 9 November 2011

The Breakers have terminated Corey Webster's contract with the Australian National Basketball League club, following his second positive test for a banned substance and the resulting one year suspension.

Webster tested positive for synthetic cannabis in April and was last month given the minimum one year suspension by the Court of Arbitration for Sport.

Webster was contracted for the next two ANBL seasons, but Breakers general manager Richard Clarke says after meetings with Webster the club believes terminating the contract is the appropriate action.

However Clarke hasn't ruled out signing Webster in the future and says he needs to use the time away from the sport to re-evaluate his priorities and make changes in his life.

He says Webster has made some bad decisions and is now facing the consequences of those.
