Sounds like John Rillie according to Boti Nagy.

Former 36ers championship player John Rillie, coming off an assistant-coach role with the Bronze Medal-winning Boomers at the Tokyo Olympics, is a name being touted as Henry's successor.

WTF is going on with the 36ers...seems we're offering the head coach role to anyone who'll listen and they are all turning it down.

Also got a weird email from them saying they noticed I had read an email from them and wondered if I want a membership. Creepy.

In a surprise decision the NZ Breakers have mutually agreed to release star guard Tai Webster from his contract due to his refusal to be vaccinated. He re-signed with the Breakers in July but as the team are expected to start the season based in Australia again it's unlikely he would be able to travel interstate.
