Le'Afa and Phoenix Agree Release
South East Melbourne Phoenix and Izayah Le’afa have agreed on a mutual release from his contract for next season.
Hailing from New Zealand, Le’afa joined the Phoenix as a development player for NBL21; his breakout game came against the Sydney Kings, which saw him drop eight three-pointers on the way to 29 points.
Le’afa earned himself a full roster position at the end of the NBL21 season, signing with the Phoenix for two years.
A desire to return home saw Le’afa request a release from his contract, which the Phoenix have agreed to.
