Rising star Dyson Daniels will follow in his father's footsteps and play for the Bendigo Braves.
The 15-year-old has been elevated to the Braves senior roster for this year's NBL1 season.
His father, Ricky, is one of the Braves' greatest players of all time having won two national MVP awards in 1999 and 2000.
Ricky played 178 games for the Braves, won a conference championship and had his number 23 singlet retired in 2011.
Dyson Daniels represented Australia at the under-15 Oceania Championships, winning a gold medal.
Dyson, who will celebrate his 16th birthday next month, can't wait to make his senior debut.
“It’s a bit of a dream come true for me having grown up watching Dad play for the Braves,'' he said.
"The whole group has been working really hard since late last year and I was just happy to train with the team, but (coach) DJ (Hogan) has shown real faith in me from the first session and I can’t wait to play for him.”
Hogan said Dyson deserved his place in the senior squad,
“Dyson is a true example of hard work, determination and a willingness to be better every time he has the opportunity,'' Hogan said.
"He has proven himself time and time again at training against the group and I anticipate he will add a real spark for us.”
