The Wellington Saints have re-signed Breakers and Tall Blacks shooting guard Corey Webster for the 2014 NBL season.

It will be Webster's third season with the Saints, where he will link with good friend BJ Anthony.  

"I feel Corey is the best scorer in the league, and paired with LT [Lindsay Tait] and Beny [Anthony], I strongly believe they could be the highest scoring trio in the competition." said Saints general manager Fran Scholey.

The 26-year-old Webster is averaging nearly eight points in under 20 minutes per game for the Breakers this season.

The Saints also announced that former point guard George Le'afa will join Shane Heal and Seth Weakly on the coaching staff.

"Smart point guards generally make great coaches, and George will instantly have the respect of the senior players who have played with him," Scholey said.

The Saints will start their preparations this week, with Tait and import centre Elijah Obade joining the team.

The Saints' season tips off on April 2 against the Bay Hawks.

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
