Bendigo Braves forward Adam Tanner has decided not to play in the 2013 SEABL season.
In a statement released by the club today, Tanner said he has enjoyed the last four seasons with the club and thanked all those involved.
“I have really enjoyed playing the last four seasons," he said.
"It is a big commitment and everything I do I want to commit 100% to.
"I would like to thank all the supporters, sponsors and my family and teammates for their support over the last few years."
Tanner has played 116 games, averaging 12.2 points and 5.3 rebounds per game.
Braves coach Ben Harvey said he is "very disappointed" with the 27-year-old's decision not to continue playing.
"I am very disappointed with Adam’s decision not to play. He is only 27 and I believe still has a lot of basketball left in him,” Harvey said.
"Adam is a great, versatile player but unfortunately his heart wasn’t in it for another season.
"I respect his decision and this gives an opportunity for another player to fill his role.”
The announcement comes after the Braves recently signed American guard Jazzmarr Ferguson to play in 2013 alongside returning Braves' forward and former SEABL East MVP, Ivan McFarlin.
It is unknown whether Tanner will re-join the club in future seasons.
