- Rick Rickert

Former Timberwolves forward Rickert spent his third consecutive season with the New Zealand Breakers, a team which play in Australia's NBL despite the name. He averaged 11.6 points and 7.1 rebounds (which led the league) for the Breakers, who went 15-13 on the season. However, the Breakers have already signed New Zealand international Mika Vukona to replace Rickert for next season, so Rick's only chance of staying with the team is if he can get a New Zealand passport. He's trying to do so, and he's also playing in the New Zealand league for a team called the Harbour Heat. The New Zealand league takes place in the summer, starting after the conclusion of the NBL season, and that's how it's able to lure some NBL talent. It's not of the same calibre, though, as evidenced by the hike in Rickert's numbers to a gaudy 20.0 points and 12.4 rebounds, including a 22/22 game.

There's a site up at www.rickrickert.com. But it's far from a Rick Rickert fan site.

Note: Non-US teams that the player has played for are, unless stated otherwise, from the top division in that nation. If a league or division name is expressly stated, it's not the top division. The only exceptions to this are the rare occasions where no one league is said to be above the other, such as with the JBL/BJ League split in Japan.
