Bullets blast import as split turns ugly

BASKETBALL: Star import Perrin Buford has left the Brisbane Bullets.

The Bullets took a swipe at Buford in announcing the American had been released at his own request to "pursue opportunities in Europe".

"It had become obvious over the last week that Perrin was no longer committed to the team, and the situation had become untenable," Bullets general manager Richard Clarke said.

"It is not in the best interests of the rest of the players or our fans to retain a player that is not committed to his team or the club and (we) have agreed to release Perrin immediately.

"The rest of the playing group are committed to the vision and values of the club, and competing for the Bullets in our remaining games.

"The coaches will also use this as an opportunity to continue to invest in our young players and give them increased court time."

The Bullets, who can't make the playoffs, host Illawarra on Thursday night at the Brisbane Convention Centre.
