The New Zealand Breakers have signed on two promising youngsters to strengthen their roster for next year's Australian NBL campaign.

Development players Finn Delany, 20, and 23-year-old Shea Ili will step up to full-time duties, bringing the total number of players signed for the new campaign to seven.

Henare has no doubt both players are ready to take the step up.

"Shea is one of the fittest players ever to come through the club, based on testing he is our number one overall best athlete - which gives him some amazing tools to do special things on the court," he said.

"Finn is another whose work ethic and attitude is where he excels. His versatility with his genuine size enable him to play power forward but also to guard multiple positions."
