The Perth Wildcats have agreed to a request from Corey Webster to release him from his contract with the club, effective immediately.
Webster originally signed a two-year deal with the Wildcats in March, but recently expressed the desire to break his contract and pursue his career overseas.
“It is disappointing to lose a key signing like Corey, but we’re thankful to have reached this decision now, when we have the time to make the necessary changes,” said Perth Wildcats CEO Troy Georgiu.
“With Corey released from his contract, we now have three roster spots remaining, which can all be filled by import players if required.”
Webster is currently playing in the NBA Summer League in Las Vegas with the Dallas Mavericks following a strong showing at their free agent mini-camp.
Prior to Summer League, Webster was a member of the Wellington Saints squad in the NZNBL who went undefeated across the season claiming a championship in the process.
The three-time championship player with the NZ Breakers parted ways with his former club this off-season, and the Wildcats leapt at the opportunity to add him to their back court.
