David Magid – 3/22/2009
The Santa Barbara Breakers announce the signing of Zack Fray of Los Angeles. Fray is a 6’6 220 combo big guard/small forward who went to training camp with the Miami Heat in 2003.A sustained injury shortened his attempt at making the Heat roster thus leading him on to opportunities in Ireland, England and China. Fray played two years at Santa Ana CC from 1999-2001 averaging 20 points, 11 rebounds and 5 assists per game. The lefty is a great scorer who plays above the rim and will stroke the trey from NBA range. A father of two daughters, Fray is also the double for Laker great Kobe Bryant in magazine and television commercials. He has extensive duties outside basketball endorsing many products with national corporations.
Head Coach Pickering had this to say about Zack Fray: “Zack Fray is one of the most talented players outside the NBA and NBDL who has simply slipped through the cracks. Playing for the Breakers will put him back on the radar as well as give the fans of Santa Barbara a very flamboyant star to watch for 10 nights this season.”
The Breakers begin their home schedule on Saturday, April 25 at 7:05 pm at the SBCC Sports Pavilion. For tickets, call 969-7542.
