The Schwarz Excavations Rockhampton Rockets have secured another key piece for the 2023 season, signing 6ft 8-inch swingman Chier Maker.

Maker will join the Rockets for the Coles Express 2023 NBL1 North season after averaging 18.8 points and 9.3 rebounds per game for Inner West in the NBL1 East during the 2022 NBL1 season.

We are really looking forward to Chier’s arrival and I believe the fans will love what he brings to the table.”

Chier said, “I’m thrilled to play for Coach Neal and the Rockhampton Rockets in this upcoming season. This is a really great opportunity for me to showcase my versatility and to be competing with the best of the best in an extremely good league in the NBL1 North. I’m looking forward to meeting my teammates and coaches and to the Rocky fans, I’m looking forward to seeing you all at the games in what is going to be a fun season.”
