The Breakers have completed their roster for the upcoming Australian National Basketball League season, signing the American point guard Kerron Johnson.

Johnson will fill the final import spot left vacant by the league MVP, Cedric Jackson, who decided against coming back for a third season with the three-time defending champions.

The 22-year-old left hander is in his first year out of American college basketball, where he played for Belmont University, averaging 14 points and just under five assists per game in his final season.
