Giants re-sign Delany


One of Nelson’s favourite sons has re-signed with the region.

The Mike Pero Nelson Giants have secured the signature of star forward Finn Delany for the 2019 season.

Finn had an outstanding 2018, averaging just under 20 points a game and leading a Giants resurgence which saw it finish the regular season in third.

The 23-year-old was also named in the NZNBL all-star five and forward of the season.

The Tall Black will again be integral to the Giant’s chances of success in 2019.

Giants general manager Jeremy Banks says the franchise is “really excited” to have Finn back on the books for 2019.

“Finn had a fantastic season for us last year and he’s taken that form and built on it with a strong season for the Breakers.”

Finn has spent four seasons with the Breakers, racking up 59 appearances with the Auckland franchise.

In October, he slammed home a career-best 27 points off the bench against Adelaide before a knee injury saw him endure a stint on the side-lines.

However, he has returned to court and has continued the form that illustrates why his signature is so highly sought after.

Jeremy says Finn is a huge talent and his athleticism always makes him a crowd favourite.

“We look forward to another season of him attacking the Trafalgar Centre rims.”
