    Breakers CEO Matt Walsh is trying to get an old college teammate a gig playing for the franchise he owns

    Breakers CEO Matt Walsh is trying to get an old college teammate a gig playing for the franchise he owns


    It just so happens the player is a two-time NBA All Star.

    Walsh has confirmed the Australian basketball league club are in discussions with 2014 defensive player of the year, Joakim Noah about joining the side.

    The centre has struggled for regular game time in recent years, playing just 95 matches across three NBA seasons.

    Walsh says he's always over-confident as he knows what they have to offer, but if an NBA team comes calling, then Noah will take it 100 times out of 100.
