The EnviroNZ Bulls are excited to announce that Denhym Brooke will Captain the Bulls during this years 3x3 NBL competition.
"Denhym has been an exciting addition to the Bulls SalsNBL roster this season. He's lead from the front, become a true leader and showed exactly what sort of player he can be! Denhym is one of our guys and we are excited to have him lead the 3X3 squad this year." GM, Scott Kelso.

The team will take part in two events this season.

Tickets are now on sale and available HERE.

WHEN WILL THE DRAFT ORDER BE ANNOUNCED AND HOW WILL IT WORK?
The draft order for each Player Draft (men and women) will be announced on Wednesday August 18 and will be conducted live on the NZNBL Facebook page.
The first two rounds of each draft will be via a Snake Draft - meaning the team with selection 1 (first pick of the 1st round) will also get selection 20 (last pick of the 2nd round), and the team with selection 10 (last pick of the 1st round) will get selection 11 (first pick of the 2nd round).
For each Player Draft, the 3rd round will be drawn live on the night, meaning each team won't know the order of the 3rd round until the completion of the 2nd round.
DRAFT NIGHT - WEDNESDAY AUGUST 25
The two Player Drafts will be held on the same night and will last for approximately 45-60 minutes.
The women's draft will be held first, followed by the men's draft. Both drafts will be live and available to watch.
Each team will have 60-seconds to make their selection once they are told they are "on the clock".
If a team fails to make a selection in the allotted time they will drop back one place and take their next selection (the one they missed) after the next team. This same process will continue if they keep 'timing out' on their selection.
TRADE WEEKEND - AUGUST 28/29
Once the drafts are completed there will be a Trade Weekend where teams can trade players (one for one) with another teams. Trades can involve multiple teams, but you can only trade out the same number of players as you are trading in. For example, one for one, two for two etc. You cannot trade one player out and receive two players in return.
