SEPTEMBER 4TH, 8:05am: Webster will work out for the Pelicans, a source indicated to Niall Anderson of The New Zealand Herald.
AUGUST 22ND, 11:03am: There are multiple NBA teams interested in signing New Zealand’s Corey Webster to a training camp deal, Michael Scotto of Sheridan Hoops reports (Twitter link). It is unknown at this time which teams have expressed interest in the 26-year-old shooting guard. Webster went undrafted back in the 2010 NBA Draft.
Webster attended a three-day mini-camp the Pacers held in June. Prior to the event he told Tom Hersz of Downtownball.net, “I am looking forward to the whole opportunity, being in the NBA environment and the chance to show them what I can do on the court. It’s an amazing opportunity that I am ready to take advantage of.”
This past NBL season, Webster was a large part of the New Zealand Breakers winning the league championship, which was the squad’s fourth in the past five seasons. Webster finished eighth overall in the NBL in scoring, averaging 15.3 points per contest, and he led the league in three-pointers made (71), and drained 42% of his shots from deep overall.
He inked a new three year contract with the Breakers in June, but the pact did include an NBA out clause, which would allow Webster to come stateside and compete for an NBA roster spot if he desires.
