Looks like Torrey Craig is very close to signing also

Torrey Craig would be extremely high on my list of targets (perhaps no. 1) if i was recruiting.

MACDUB, really? Surprises me. Good player but I'd be locking in locals as a priority.

Yeah, especially with Kickert inside, having a player like Craig at the 3 spot helps make up for K's lack of rebounding.

Isaac, can see what you're saying but I see difficultly in trying to find a local SG/SF who is starter-level. Goulding, Lisch, Webster are all locked up. Finding a local SG outside of these leads you to non-natural SG's (ala Gibson) or guys who simply arent' starter level yet.

He is a terrific two-way player, size gives added rebounding, versatility with his ability to shoot and attack the rim, good passing game etc.

He would really flourish in Lemanis' system if he orchestrates a similar style to his Breakers day.

I didn't mean locking in a local at that position necessarily. Lock in good locals regardless of position and then fill gaps with imports. Any strong local you sign deprives eight other teams of the same opportunity. Snatch Craig and the other teams just go to a huge pool of (admittedly less-proven) players.

That said, maybe there aren't many great locals as free agents. Penney maybe?
