Bendigo Braves announce Dustin Salisbery as new import

THE Bendigo Braves have signed their second import with former NBA Development League guard Dustin Salisbery joining the club for the 2014 SEABL season.

The 29-year-old heads to Bendigo after a stint with the Delaware 87ers in the NBA D-League.

Salisbery, who has had stints in the Dominican Republic, Mexico, Germany, France, Romania and Greece, graduated from Temple University.

He averaged 16 points and five rebounds per game in his senior year with Temple.

He entered the 2007 NBA Draft, but was overlooked.

“Dustin is the type of player we have been missing in the past few seasons.  He is a very versatile player, he is a great defender, rebounder and scorer,” Braves coach Ben Harvey said.

Salisbery joins centre Zach Atkinson as the Braves two new imports for 2014.
