Wellington Saints are slowly getting the recruitment ball rolling as they set about defending their National Basketball League crown next season.

As it stands, the Saints have just player-coach Pero Cameron and fringe Tall Black Leon Henry on the books for next year.

Cameron, who coached the Saints to this season's title in his first year at the helm, has not retired from playing and may take the court next season if his body allows.

Reigning league MVP Lindsay Tait has told the Saints he intends to return, while Palmerston North-based Nick Horvath and Auckland-based Casey Frank are both mulling over their offers.

Saints chief executive Nick Mills would welcome back gun American guard Eric Devendorf with open arms but he is likely to take up a contract in Europe once he finishes the Australian NBL with the Melbourne Tigers.

The Saints are chasing Australian-based Kiwi point guard Zane Meehl as Tait's backup, while veteran shooting guard Troy McLean is expected to go around again when the season tips off in April.

How do you expect the Breakers to perform in this season's Australian NBL?

Last season was a blip, they'll be champions once again

They'll go close to another title, beaten finalists I'd say

Playoffs for sure, but can't see them going any further

Not too excited, they'll miss the playoffs again
