Whangarei gunman's house goes up in flames after double-fatal shooting, shooter in vicinity of house
The Breakers have confirmed they will not be renewing guard Corey Webster's contract and have opted to part ways with him.
Corey Webster of the NZ Breakers.
Webster's nine-year stint with the club has come to an end after Breakers general manager Dillon Boucher confirmed both the club and Webster had mutually decided to decline the third year option on his current contract so he could look at different options.
"We think it is the right time for Corey to take on a new challenge and to assess what he wants to get out of the game," said Boucher.
"He has had a challenging six months and has in that time struggled with his physical fitness and the distraction of off-court issues.
"There were times this season when he did not live up to our expectations as a Breaker and perhaps make the most of the opportunities that he has been presented with, but he goes with our best wishes and our hopes that he can enjoy a successful second half to his career."
Webster pleaded not guilty last month to two charges of assault and one count of assault with intent to injure after he was arrested last November in Takapuna.
He will reappear in court later this month.
