Last season, the Mill Rats left the Premier Basketball League and started the National Basketball League of Canada with the Halifax Rainmen. This will be the third season for the Mill Rats playing in Saint John.
"I'm super excited to have the opportunity to play pro ball again for the Mill Rats. I've been working hard on my game and I'm looking forward to competing at this level again. Having Dave Cooper as a coach is going to be an awesome experience - I have a lot of respect for him and for his knowledge of the game," Anderson says.
Head Coach David Cooper looks forward to the season adding, "I'm excited to have Mike on our roster, first as a person and secondly, as a player. He is an exceptional athlete that can help us on both ends of the floor. He's a spark in the locker room, on the court and in the community. I'm excited to have the opportunity to coach and work with him."
