Last team: EnviroNZ Franklin Bulls
Thompson played for the Bulls in the 2021 season and was elevated to the starting point guard role midway through the season as the Bulls were ravaged by injuries. The 18 year old took advantage of the opportunity; averaging 6.5 points, 1.8 rebounds and 2.0 assists across his 10 games as a starter for the Bulls last year.
Jett is another Auckland local who represented Harbour Basketball, Westlake Boys High School and played for the NZ U15 team in his junior career.
For Thompson, returning to the Bulls for a second year was a no-brainer, saying “the community is great. The fans supported us last year no matter what the scoreboard said, so hopefully we can give them the wins they deserve this year.”
“Jett has always achieved highly simply because he works so hard. His work ethic and passion for improvement is infectious and he is the exact type of player we want on this team. Says Head Coach Morgan Maskell.
