Melbourne Tigers are finalising a deal with guard Kevin Braswell.

The American left-hander is believed to have agreed to join the Tigers next season but the team is yet to finalise the move.

Tigers coach Chris Anstey said yesterday he would only confirm the club had talked to Braswell.

He said nothing was confirmed on the signing. Braswell was attempting to become a New Zealand citizen, which would allow him to play in the Australian NBL as a local player.

But that bid is yet to come through, meaning he may fill the Tigers' second import position, a move it is understood the club is prepared to make.

The club is also in talks with former Gold Coast Blaze guard Chris Goulding who is believed to be keen on joining the Tigers following the collapse of the Queensland club last week.

Former Blaze duo Adam Gibson and Anthony Petrie are both believed to have signed with Adelaide 36ers.

The Tigers said yesterday they were close on some player signings but were unsure when they would be in a position to announce them.

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
