The James Blond Super City Rangers today confirmed that Dillon Boucher has been re-signed as player-assistant coach for the next three NBL seasons.
His signing means that the Rangers will have the two ‘winningest’ active NBL players, in terms of championships, on the roster.
Boucher has won nine New Zealand NBL titles and Lindsay Tait, signed last week, has won seven championships. In addition Boucher hasa won four Australian NBL titles, three of those with the SKYCITY Breakers and one with the Brisbane Bullets.
Boucher, who first played in the NBL for the Auckland Stars in 1994 has played the last two seasons for the Super City Rangers and is delighted to be continuing his career with the Rangers. The former Tall Black will turn fourty in December and has secretly harboured a desire to continue playing beyond his 40th birthday.
“I am excited to be back with the James Blond Super City Rangers again with the signing of Lindsay Tait and more to come soon I know we will have a great team. I am very thankful to be able to continue my career with the Rangers.”
Rangers head coach Jeff Green is delighted to have Boucher at his side again next season.
“I have always said I am keeping the seat warm for when Dillon finishes his playing career and moves into fulltime coaching. His expertise in both roles cannot be measured.”
