Four-time champion departs Wildcats

The Perth Wildcats appear set for a new-look frontcourt rotation next season after reserve forward Rhys Vague confirmed his departure today.

Vague will ply his trade in Japan this summer, signing for B.League club Kagawa Five Arrows after spending six seasons at the Wildcats.

The Cockburn product rose from development player to main roster member as a local success story, securing four championship rings and becoming a popular member of the squad.

Vague’s exit comes amid an expected departure for star forward Nick Kay, who is understood to be heading to Spain after opting out of his NBL contract in May.

Vague said he was proud of his accomplishments in his time in the west.

“It was a childhood dream to play for the team I grew up supporting, and I’m very proud to have reached that goal and experience a lot of success along the way,” Vague said.

“I’ve been very privileged to play alongside some incredible teammates, work with elite coaches and make lifelong friends.

“I want to thank the Perth Wildcats for the opportunity and helping me develop over the last six years.”

Perth skipper Damian Martin is yet to make a call on his future ahead of the late-year NBL season restart in December.
