Another big signing for Port City Power men's basketball team
BASKETBALL: On the back of getting the signature of rebounding machine Willie Shackleford, Gladstone Port City Power have secured the services of another giant.
Nathaniel Musters, who towers over at 208cm, has put pen to paper to play in the 2017 Queensland Basketball League season.
The 23-year-old is from Sydney and graduated last year from NCAA Division One Lafayette College in Pennsylvania after he finished his four-year basketball scholarship.
He is currently playing in the Ireland Super League for club Commercial.ie Eanna.
Musters said he cannot wait to come to Gladstone and meet his new team-mates.
"I came about signing with Port City Power by coming into contact with their coach, Blair Smith," Musters said.
"He has a wealth of experience in the world of basketball in Australia and I am looking forward to learning from him and playing for him."
Musters currently averages 12.5 points per game, but it is his work off the boards that is appealing as well where he pulls down 11.4 rebounds a game.
"I hope to bring size and a physicality to the team, being a presence for them inside on both ends of the floor," Musters said.
"I am sure the coach will implement me in ways that I can best help Port City Power win games, and that's what I have signed on to do."
Smith has briefed Musters about the Power's playing roster and is certain Musters will fit in, on and off the court.
"I have been a part of a number of teams and have always found a way to contribute and connect with the players and I am certain this will be no different," Musters said.
"Basketball has taken me everywhere. I have so much to thank this sport and my coaches along the way for, I have been all over the world in so many beautiful and wonderful places, and now I can add Gladstone to that list."
