I don't understand why the NBL doesn't look at SEABL imports more often?
There are some great imports in the league but NBL teams continuously take risks and end up with players much worse.

Gordie says the chances of getting Ervin are very slim. Deleon sounds like a chance, but it'd come down to whether that was the sort of player they wanted.

They've more or less signed the rest of their roster but haven't decided whether they'll go with a guard and a forward or two guards.

Gordie is known to be a bit keen on getting 'lucky' with a wildcard (e.g., McKee, Ervin, etc). IMO, just get a decent known quantity and run with that. Deleon put up good numbers for the Blaze last year.

Ervin is out of reach for them financially. Unless he wants to come back Australia more than making double what he could be I doubt he will be back in the NBL.

Deleon would be a good signing. Abit streaky and comes off as abit of a tosser but otherwise would be a step in the right direction for the Hawks.

Suprised they have retained so much of their team from last year. They really need 2 good imports to do anything other than fight Melbourne and Sydney for the wooden spoon.

I like Jazzmar too but I think the fact that he has never played in a highly recognised competition works against him. I believe he played division 2 college, in Canada and now in SEABL. Very risky

DeLeon would be a good signing for the Hawks, the last couple of chances Gordie took on an import guard blew up in his face (Bailey & Glover).

Go for the known quantity this time.

Deleon is not what the Hawks need , he doesnt pass the ball
The Blaze players hated playing with him and the Hawks players hated playing with Ubaka for the same reason
Deleon is worse
The Hawks have been absolutley killed in rebounding last year and the year before.
They have had no post game for 2 years and Grubers is old and too small and always injured
They need another big to play inside on offence and defence and a point guard to help get Foreman and Davidson free from the 3 point line
I cant believe they are contemplating 2 import guards after being smashed inside for 2 years
I guess it will be 3 years in a row missing the play offs

It's a shame that they did not get Petrie
They then could have put all the money on one import pg

I don't think that Deleon is a bad option as he a very good rebounder and defender and the hawks need a scorer to draw the d and open up the floor for foreman and sav

Gruber is past it but there is not many options left ???

Hawks need a point with a great handle who can run offence and get pass the ball , the rest of the team are mostly spot up shooters.
Also need some real toughness inside , Someone who can get the double double every night.
Get Darnell Mee and Melvin Thomas and it's sorted.
