CJ given deadline and Mottram now in the mix.
ADELAIDE will give Knox Raiders import CJ Massingale 11 days to determine his NBL future while Pero Vasiljevic's hold on the final roster spot also is under threat.
Neil Mottram, the 205cm centre who led Melbourne to the 2006 championship and who won a cult following as a 36er in 2008, has not been ruled out.
Mottram however is also currently in hospital after falling ill shortly after the Eagles grand final win. Hopefully if he is in the mix, that doesn't end up ruling him out.
I'd be happy with either Motts of Pero. Neither are gonna see an awful lot of minutes anyway, but both are good aggressive big men.
"By the time we get back from China (Friday-week), we would hope to have that (import) spot done," Sixers coach Marty Clarke said. "We have a few options we're looking at and CJ has to decide what he wants to do.
"We have spoken to a couple of young guys in the US who are straight out of (college).
"CJ's veteran status gives him an edge but it's up to him now what he wants to do."
I'm interested to know what people would prefer? A SEABL veteran who is unproven at NBL level, or a complete unknown straight out of college?
