re: NBL Rosters so far

Apart from Imports i would say the following

Adelaide - Improved ( Crosswell and Weigh are upgrades , Creek better this season too, one big to go)
Cairns - Worse ( Lost 3 starters)
Gold Coast - Same (If they stay healthy)
Melbourne - Improved (my early tip for the title)
Perth - Worse (Lost Weigh, an Import and Redhage is a ?)
Sydney - Same (No upgrades in any spots)
New Zealand - Worse (Lost 2 starters in Penney and Henare)
Wollongong - Worse ( Saville and Campbell aren't getting younger and still need to do a lot of heavy lifting)
Townsville - Worse ( Crosswell is a big whole they have filled with youth)

re: NBL Rosters so far

Sydney have 10 but still have at least one player to sign, a local back-up FC most likely.
NZ one more assuming Jackson has been signed. Melbourne have 10 but are considering an 11th man apparently but wont be a rotation player.
Adelaide have one local spot
Cairns an import and a local
Gold Coast one spot (most likely import)
Wollongong two spots (most likely imports)

re: NBL Rosters so far

Muzz Buzz, being a Crocs fan of course I disagree on Tsv being worse. But Crosswell was ok in patches last year and plain ordinary in others, so I think cedar and Norton will be up for covering the back up spot. Blanchfield is killing it in qbl and will play more minutes this year. Plus mims should be a more athletic better shooting version of Ellis, and Gill a more skilled experienced pg than Blalock. Brad Williamson played limited minutes last year and was off his game, shouldn't be missed. In my opinion fine turned an already good team.

re: NBL Rosters so far

Hi Skip, something isn't quite right with the Hawks roster as you have 9 players listed, they just signed big man Joevan Catron and the Mercury article also says they intend to sign a PG still.

So at least one of the guys you have listed on that roster is actually not signed. Haven't been able to work out who yet but my guess would be Gruber, since he and Catron look like similar sized players.

I can't resist throwing a quick roster summary in so here we go:

Wildcats and Tigers looking good, though the Cats need Redhage to be fully recovered.

Penney is a BIG loss for the Breakers, but they will be thereabouts, expecially if Webster steps up at SG as I suspect he can.

Taipans have a nice frontcourt again, but will depend heavily on good imports in their backcourt to do as well as last season.

Blaze are the opposite, great backcourt and four gun starters, but zero size in the frontcourt once again.

Crocs looking solid again, but will only go as far as their imports can take them.

Hawks still solid, but will need another Gary Ervin to challenge at the top again and that seems unlikely (unless Mills signs with them!)

Kings look weak and small in the backcourt (weird combo of signings there) but they might get away with it because of their frontcourt. Khazzouh is far and away the best big man in the league IMO and I think Bose could surprise. The real key will be import Jerai Grant though. Draft Express talks up his defensive ability and he blocked 2.3 shots his senior year. If he can be the defensive foil for Khazzouh then the Kings will be pretty tough in the paint.

Sixers have improved their talent level and roster balance, but how much will depend on their imports and the development of DJ. Its up to Marty now to show he can get a high level of performance out of his players. Also, I can't believe Ben Knight is still on that FA list. Snap him up Marty!

Bean, they will have an 11 man roster. Jackson (or maybe Demos) is 11th man.

re: NBL Rosters so far

Ok, you'd think Jackson will be 11th man then, or their backcourt will be looking a little thin.

Gruber is definitely signed? Thought he was a FA end of last season and haven't seen a report on him resigning yet.

re: NBL Rosters so far

Yes, Gruber is signed. I imagine final starters would be based on pre-season form (e.g., maybe Catron dominates), but otherwise something like this:

?/Martin
Campbell/Demos
Saville/Coenraad
Forman/Catron/Jackson
Davidson/Gruber

Brebner isn't an import. He's been on their list for about 4 years. Bench player at best.

They may start Cedar at SG, Crawford at SF and have Mims off the bench?
