The quest for 2021 Sal's NBL championship is looking like a wide-open race so far with 55 players announced to date.
Only the Steelformers Taranaki Mountainairs and Taylor Hawke's Bay Hawks are yet to announce any players.
A host of strong imports have been announced, while a growing crop of young Kiwi stars have also been inked.
Teams must maintain rosters of 12 contracted players as a minimum, with 15 players the maximum on a roster.
So …. which team looks the strongest so far?
