Player Spotlight: Chris Warren

The message boards seemed split during the year over Chris Warren and whether he should stay or go. I've done a blog on him below- who wants him back and who thinks it's back to the drawing board?

If you could sub him on for offence and off for defence he would be a very handy player!

I think he is a good player but not what we need - back to the drawing board I think....

Keep him these are some decent stats
14.2pts at 40% FG, 2.3reb, 3.2ast,0.8stl and 2.9to
On a full 36ers squad with ballinger in the line up, he could be a real threat. Very handy with the ball and can hit 3 shot so well.

Go Get Kris Clark from Mildura as the Import then every player on the court will be getting open looks all game, just ask Gary Wilkinson from NZ

Stats were OK, but need more D at that position. Also have to compare him to other import points, and those were:

Gill
Wilson
Jackson
Allen
Deleon (also SG)
Lisch (also SG)

Not even bothering to mention Glover.

Three of those guys were the top three scorers in the league (Lisch, Wilson, Deleon). Warren's stats were only really comparable with those of Gill. Can't really bring back one of the weaker PGs after a season like we've had.

I'd find out what Jackson costs or look for someone else. Deleon was very cheap last year so might be worth considering. Not too sure about Gill and I think Allen looked like he didn't fit with his team.

I wouldnt go with Deleon. As good as he is offensively I think he is much in the same mould as Warren defensively?

back to the drawing board - no D and we continually cringed when he had the ball at point - too slow moving it and gave the impression he didn't even know the plays then in the end of close games would drive and try to put up against couple of talls aaahhh

JJ, Kris Clark as you mentioned: Clark, 6'2 is a graduate of Utah State University where he was the starting point guard for two years. An explosive point guard with great quickness and acceleration whilst a solid shooter his strength is in ball-handling, ball distribution and defensive quickness.

I've previously mentioned Torey Thomas who appears to be in the mould of Cedric Jackson at the Breakers...

Tornado- Kris Clark - Most assists in one year in schools history 226 - led nation in assists in senior year (watched him play in Melbourne)MUST at least have a look at him I think.

Chris Warren was third all-time in assists for Ole Miss from memory. You cant always take too much from college stats, the pros is a different level.

Fair call but 3rd at Ole Miss and 1st in the nation is a bit different, Report also is if NZ dont re-sign Jackson they are looking at him, but that is a big IF (Looks like Wilkinson has been talking)

The 36ers need a better distributor at PG and someone with a bit more height. I realise if you haven't got much money to spend you end up with sub 6 footers but both Warren & Shannon were too small.

JJ, agreed they should at least take a look. I was just posting some info on him for other posters/viewers to this forum.

What do you mean by looks like Wilkinson has been talking? Do you mean to the 6'ers or about Jackson?

Talking more about Jackson , I know Wilkinson and Kris Clark were team mates at Utah State and he has massive wraps on Clark and Jackson has had some offers else where (not in the NBL) so is still unsure of what he will do. Good work on the other info Tornado. cheers
