Rumoured - Perth Wildcats to Sign Hugh Greenwood

Boti has just tweeted "Expect @PerthWildcats to soon announce signing @HGreenwood3 which makes sense cutting @earnest33_ross, U'u too"

Very nice pickup!!!

I haven't seen a lot of Greenwood but saw a bit of him when he played for the Boomers vs China last year. He should be a great addition to the team and a good back up to Martin.

I assume his signing would be 3 points under the points cap which also leaves the Cats with 18 points to blow on their last 2 roster spots.

I think he still has NBA ambitions and is trying to get into camps/summer league so if he does sign with the Wildcats will be very conditional on allowing him to pursue NBA options?

Very good signing for the league. The Kings are rumoured to sign Dan Trist as well.

This is a nice signing for Perth. I certainly hope it isn't the "big" one though. I hope we get another Ennis. We will see how Greenwood does, but my hope is he becomes the premier Australian NBL point guard.

Would he sign this early for a backup job? Or will Perth start him at the 3?

United may have tried to sell him a starting point or 2guard spot.

I can't imagine him being put in as a back up. He will slot into the starting line up somewhere. Even if that means someone like Martin ends up a back up, which wouldn't be the worst situation and I dont think it would bother Damien too much.

I think he's a third guard on a good team at this point of his career, but will most likely develop into a very good starter. Nice signing by Perth if true.

He's a 3 point Australian.

Meaning the Wildcats have 18 points to splurge on an Import and another local.

If they take Greenwood that leaves 18pts remaining so can add an 8pt player so don't see them taking Robbins who is a 4.

You can have as many points as you want, doesn't mean you can afford him under the salary cap. Assuming Perth used the full 1 million salary cap last year, they only have U'u and Ross's salary to use.

Greenwood wouldn't of come that cheap. Very doubtful they will be able to come close to fitting an 8pt player under the salary cap, hence my suggestion for Robbins.

Would be great to have another really talented Aussie in our league.
Shame if it has to be Perth, but they do often seem to be the team ahead of the wave. ( with the exception of 36ers getting Brock Motum last year!)

@PeterJohn - I wasn't factoring in the last import spot or the marquee ruling. So basically looking at 9 players - 850K salary cap with 150K + for a Marquee ontop of that.

I think Paul is on the money with his assessment of Greenwood and his potential imp[act in his first year of NBL.

Trist to Sydney makes sense as he is a local boy. Would be a very good addition.

Getting a Boomers fringe player at 3 points is handy. I assume Perth will have a few option years on the contract so they can try to keep him at that points level.

re: Rumoured - Perth Wildcats to Sign Hugh Greenwood

It would seem very strange that somebody still actively pursuing NBA drafting would already be signing with the Cats. I seem to recall that the Cats do not like granting NBA or European out clauses in their contracts.

A lack of backup PG was a highlighted deficiency, and now with basically no guards on their bench, that would logically be a focus for the Cats. Somebody who (like Greenwood) can also play the SG role would obviously be valuable, and as a returning College student Greenwood would be exceptional value. But its hard to see it happening.

It wouldn't surprise me at all to see the Cats sign a "similar" player, but somebody without any realistic NBA or European prospects.

Scotty Wilbekin couldn't get a look in. Compare the two. If Perth have made him an offer I hope his agent tells him to take it.

Surprised to see some people suggesting they re-sign Robbins.. He's well and truly past playing at the NBL level. Granted he was a great player for a long while at what he did (defensive and hustle) but at 105kg+ and barely 6 foot he was never gonna stay agile enough for the NBL after he left.

He plays in the state league every now and again and he gets 2 pts 2 rebs 2 assists in 20 mins a game.

I don't blame the guy for courting his NBA dream, but realistically, it wont be happening.

Do the try outs, do all of that. But in the end, he should definitely sign with Perth.

Anything can happen, but always have that contingency plan.

His was one of the "surprise" names on the Free Agents list, so naturally people are asking "why?" I have no clue, but like you I highly doubt he is planning a comeback.

This Robbin's signing thing is hilarious.

Knowing the source of this info it's fun seeing people bite and speculate.

Robbin's has lost a ton of weight and is arguably in the best shape of his career, and all his niggling injuries have healed.

Robbins was once a useful role player off the bench, but by the end of his NBL career he had regressed to being just a hack and a total liability at the offensive end. Fast forward a few years and my only response to a potential NBL return for him is ROFL!!

A bit more of Greenwood in the media, supposedly THREE NBL teams are courting him if he doesn't make the NBA. No mention of European aspirations though.

Still feel Cats are unlikely. They won't have as much cap spare as others, plus are reluctant to include NBA & European out clauses in contracts.

")Hugh has offers in from four teams and is looking at signing with an Australian team by mid next week," Oakes said.
"Any contract he signs will have a European/NBA out clause, which means if a better offer comes available in either of those regions he is allowed to take that."

Good to see that at least they're saying that it's not a lock at Perth, as I would have hoped a previous national juniors coach would be working pretty hard on signing him for his team...
