West Adelaide Import Signings

Looks like West have signed two imports. Are they the first club to do so?

Turrell Morris - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VTgjfJbDr6M

Harold Ridgeway - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zEO_XIqZlek

Who else has been signed or moved in Premier League? Both imports & locals.

Centrals will have two also. Woodville will get a couple of Athlete's in action imports.
South will get two from what I hear, but not sure about the rest. Personally i feel it will be great for the league as it will even it out a bit

And teams will go broke... brilliant!! At the expense of SA talent getting a game to develop. Basketball Adelaide..... no need to add an adjective

Hahaha, broke? You have no idea about import salaries in the SA league. NBL players that play in the league get way more than these imports.

Hahaha. There is a minimum that all imports get paid in Australia, regardless of what competition they play in. The minimums are the same AUSTRALIA WIDE. NBL will always pay more and should never be mentioned in situations like a local comp.
So many anonymous', so little clue.

Is it just me or are Ridgeways stats & highlights pretty underwhelming for a guy at a NAIA div 2 school?

Just play them under a working holiday visa. Let them do other work for money. Simple solution to avoid Basketball Australia's dodgy import rules

The two anon's that said

"Hahaha. There is a minimum that all imports get paid in Australia, regardless of what competition they play in. The minimums are the same AUSTRALIA WIDE. NBL will always pay more and should never be mentioned in situations like a local comp.

and "anon #377 who is clueless? Ever heard of immigration laws.... Idiot!"

Have proven that they don't already know how the SA league works!! (idiots) None of the imports in this league are on 'minimum' as they are brought out on working holiday visas pal!! that means the club can pay what they would like to pay. So before sprouting off at the mouth without knowing the logistics of the league, actually ask some questions! That is why I said it won't send the league broke and it will actually lift the standard.

Now, feel free to tuck your tail between your legs and run off.

Oh so it's the players choice to turn up and be paid jack shit then. Now we know where the true problem lies.

Any word on the other imports for other clubs?

This has gone quiet. Has any other club locked in any imports or NBL players. Can any club really afford two restricted players?

I know Starling has moved to the Rockets, and they are eyeing off another import who played for them a few years ago.
