White, a 6’8”, 236 lbs. forward from Las Vegas, Nevada, returns for his third season with the Halifax Hurricanes. Last year, he was named to the NBL Canada All-Playoff and First All NBL Canada Teams. Establishing himself as one of the most dominant players in the NBLC over the last two seasons, White is a crucial returnee to the Hurricanes core. After a season-ending injury late in the playoffs last year, he is locked in and more focused than ever on leading the Hurricanes back to another NBLC Finals appearance to reclaim the championship title in 2018.

Dixon, the first Canadian to be signed to the Hurricanes roster, returns for his third season in Halifax as well. The 6’9”, 215 lbs. Toronto native was a part of the inaugural Halifax Hurricanes team that captured the NBL Canada Championship back in 2016, along with Cliff Clinkscales and Billy White. Racking up 468 points and 283 rebounds last season, Dixon adds that depth and experience the Hurricanes will be leaning on as they look to the 2017/18 season.

Washington, a 6’7”, 217 lbs. power forward from Forkland, Alabama will be back for a second season with the Hurricanes. With a dominant 665 point, 308 rebound performance during the regular season, CJ was named to the Third All NBL Canada Team last year. After injuries forced him to the sidelines last year mid-way through the league finals, Washington will be looking to get back in stride come November. 

The National Basketball League of Canada’s 2017-18 regular season will begin on November 18, 2017.
