The Canterbury Rams would like to announce the signing of Shaun Bruce, for the 2020 Sal’s NBL Season. This announcement comes as Rams head coach Mick Downer’s fifth player signing. Shaun is currently playing for the Sydney Kings in the ANBL.
Shaun’s professional basketball career began in 2012. He signed with the Cairns Taipans as a development player for his first season then went on to play on a full-time contract with the Taipans for the next 3 years. Shaun made the move to Brisbane in 2016 where he played for two years, and in the 2017 ANBL offseason played in the QBL where he was named QBL MVP, averaging 22 points, 5 rebounds and 9 assists.
After a season with the Wellington Saints in 2018, this current season sees Shaun playing for the top seeded Sydney Kings, not only averaging career high stats but also surpassing expectations and making a great impact on the team. Sydney Kings Head Coach Will Weaver stated in a recent interview “It’s the way he drives practice and keeps the intensity up; the way he finds avenues to help our team grow in whatever way he can, whether it’s encouraging somebody or challenging somebody through his play or with his voice.”
Canterbury Rams Head Coach Mick Downer is just as thrilled to have Shaun joining the team for the 2020 Sal’s NBL saying “We are very excited to have Shaun join our club and help lead the team on the court, in the locker room and in the community.
He epitomises what a true professional is. Enduring and overcoming hardships and injury, demonstrating resilience and determination as his long journey as professional basketball has seen everything. It’s great see how impactful Shaun’s playing in the Australian NBL for the league leading Sydney Kings. We can’t wait for Shaun to bring his quickness, high IQ and toughness to our team this season.”
