We are thrilled to announce the signing of Tall Black wing Jordan Ngatai!
Jordan brings with him a wealth of knowledge, not only of this league, but also that gained from nearly a decade of international experience. He made his international debut in 2013 and has since gone on to represent the Tall Blacks at the 2017 Asia Cup, 2018 Commonwealth Games, and the 2019 FIBA Basketball World Cup. Jordan was a member of the New Zealand Breakers from 2014-20 before moving to Cairns for the 2021 and 2022 NBL seasons.
Jordan may be a familiar face to many Hawks fans as he spent most of his time in this league playing for our biggest rivals, the Wellington Saints. He will be a huge presence on and off the court and we can’t wait to see him put on a hawks jersey this season.
“We are super excited to add Ngatai to our core group here at Hawks. He comes with a wealth of experience at the highest levels, playing multiple years in ANBL as well as putting on the Black and White National Jersey. I’ve seen Ngatai’s growth from his D.P years whilst I was at Breakers. I know what he is capable of and his willingness to do whatever it takes to be great is a testament to his success this far”.
