I know he struggled in Cairns, but wasnt he just coming off a knee reconstruction and playing behind Ubaka, so probably not asked to do alot or given huge minutes.
but prior to that i thought his contribution was solid/good, not a star, but definitely good enough to be in the league imo, would be better than many of the back ups going around, or atleast as good. But i guess people do remember the last form and may have decided to go for other options even though Tait may be the better overall player.
I actually reckon Tait would do atleast aswell as Cadee, who is atleast a strong back up point guard.
I guess he may want more to relocate from NZ than a local Aussie who if playing behind a import will almost give you as much, so not worth the extra costs for the club and also probably a higher points rating than some of them aswell.
Pity, this is why id love to see an extra NZ team aswell as Brisbane and/or Melbourne 2nd team to get more of the good players playing NZ/SEABL a spot in the NBL to show there stuff, many are atleast good enough to be solid rotation guys imo and a few will turn out to be great finds. The more guys in the NBL the better imo.
