The 26th also marked the end of three Millrats who were released to pursue basketball careers elsewhere. Alexus Foyle is currently pursuing a career opportunity in Taiwan. Jose Guitian was signed to a contract in the BSN league in Puerto Rico. Al Stewart was the third player released.
Anthony Anderson who leads the league in scoring and assists, signed an overseas contract yesterday with the Trotamundos de Carabobo.

"Part of our mission is to help players advance their playing careers, and we've done that extraordinarily well this season," said Millrats GM Ian McCarthy. "When it happens, it opens the door for other players to step into new roles."
