Bezzant signs with Bulls

The EnviroNZ Franklin Bulls are pleased to announce that Jayden Bezzant will join the team for the 2022 Sal’s NBL season.

The 25 year old combo guard played for the Manawatu Jets in the 2021 Sal’s NBL, averaging 15.8 points, 3.1 rebounds and 2.7 assists per game.

Head Coach Morgan Maskell is thrilled with the Bezzant signing, “there aren’t many New Zealanders as talented as Jayden offensively. He is very instinctive and can score in every way possible. He is one of the most exciting players in our league, and it can’t be long until he’s playing in higher leagues too.”

Originally from Tauranga, Bezzant attended St John’s College in Hamilton before playing for Northwest Nazarene University for college basketball in the United States. Bezzant returned to New Zealand and played for the Manawatu Jets in the 2020 Sal’s NBL showdown and then again in 2021.

Bezzant is excited to join his new team, “I feel like the Bulls can help me reach my goals. I’m super excited to meet the fans and be a part of this community.”

“I’m just looking forward to getting back on the court and grinding with the team. I can’t wait to get to work,” he adds.

Bezzant joins Denhym Brooke and Kane Bennett-Keil on the roster for the 2022 EnviroNZ Franklin Bulls side.

The Bulls tip off their season on April 7th vs the Auckland Tuatara. Get season passes here.
