(2003/04-2005/06) Singapore Slingers
In 2004/05, former Perth Wildcats and Australian Institute of Sport coach Dr. Adrian Hurley was employed as coach. A mostly-retooled team produced much better results, finishing 8th with a 15-17 record. The Pirates made the NBL Playoffs, only to be eliminated by the Brisbane Bullets in the opening round.
The Pirates withdrew from the NBL competition at the end of the 2005/06 season due to financial difficulties and their inability to secure a major sponsor, and the club's NBL licence was put up for sale. It was revealed on NBN News that, in an effort to remain in the competition, the club had considered turning itself into a not-for-profit organisation, thereby able to access various grants.
