Princepal Singh: First look at former NBA Academy Global graduate with NBL's New Zealand Breakers

India's young basketball sensation Princepal Singh continues to break boundaries and set a path for aspiring ballers.

On Nov. 10, 2021, his deal with the NBL's New Zealand Breakers as a development player was made official. The signing made him the second Indian ever to sign with an NBL franchise after Amritpal Singh in 2017.

Nearly 10 days after the announcement, Singh joined his new team in Melbourne, where the Breakers have committed to playing the first half of the 2021-22 NBL season.

His three-year deal with the Breakers, among the most successful franchises in Australia's NBL, will further Singh's development which could possibly help him reach his eventual goal of making the NBA.
