Not sure if lack of points appeal note means that there was no appeal or that maybe it has been resolved or ignored already. Asking the NBL on Twitter for clarification.

I'd say Worthington is a chance to Melbourne or maybe Perth.

Lack of appeal from a player who could've may suggest they don't expect or intend to stay in the league (e.g., Christopherson) or the team taking them on isn't feeling points cap pressure.

Surprises me that only Trueman from the Cats appealed? Might be reading too much into it, but it could suggest they have things under control (replacing retirees with rookies) or big-point players are on the move.

That's 80% of the entire league listed there.

Pretty sure alot of clubs such as Wollongong would have verbal agreements with several of their players. It looks to be an interesting few weeks or months ahead.

Some of those Perth players leaving (IF they do) could really shake up the league

Worthington a high chance of playing for Melbourne, I believe him and Anstey get along quite well.. Off the court

Will be interesting to see who the first new signing will be. Anyone think we will see one today?

Yeah, I was honestly expecting the Wildcats to appeal almost the entire team after that set of rankings. I can only conclude there are a lot of changes to be rung in.

As I recall last year first hour very bizzy and pretty quiet so far , although most likely Joey's already spoken to a few .

Have they ever revised a player's points UP on appeal?

"I hope Bruton and Corletto get re-rated down. Their 7 and 8 respectively was way too high", said no-one.

That's quite a list. Most should be re-signed, but the Townsville situation is still unclear. We need Tommy Waterhouse to put some odds on that list, if he's not too busy.

Jeffrey Dowdell might find it hard to be squeezed into a team, but he would make a great 9th or 10th man somewhere. He was a pretty tough nut when he played for the Sixers and could easily hold his own. Good value for money IMO.

Correct me if I am wrong, but the Sixers list is currently:
(5) Schench
(4/5) Johnson
(4) Petrie
(3) Creek (inj)
(2) Cadee
