Reuben Te Rangi has signed with the Brisbane Bullets for the next Australian basketball league season.

The young Tall Blacks forward was a member of the Breakers' 2013 and 2015 championship-winning teams and has played 103 games for the club.

But Te Rangi averaged less than three points a game for the Breakers last season, shooting a lacklustre 29 per cent from the floor.

He'll join a number of familiar faces in Brisbane.

Former Breakers coach Andrej Lemanis is now in charge of the Bullets, while CJ Bruton and Richard Clarke are also now involved with the returning franchise.

The Bullets have also signed Mitch Young and Shaun Bruce from the Townsville Crocs and Cairns Taipans respectively.
