Dennis sounds good to me, another Darnell Mee/D-mac type PG by the sound of it, and gives them a long atheltic line up which should be exciting to watch.
Im assuming there rotations will be
If Dennis turns out to be very good and continues his late D-league form (which i think he will), Morrison is atleast a solid 10 pts 5 rebounds and 1 -2 blocks and a good space filler on defence and Goulding continues his late season form they should be around the mark imo.
I still think they have 1 too many sfs, would love to see a combo guard take one of there spots, but aslong as Dennis can play 30+ mins per game, ball handling shouldnt be too much an issue.
I'd pick this line up to be around 3-4th, if Dennis ends up being a mvp level import, Wortho and Goulding have good Boomer level seasons then tye could even push a little higher.
I like the idea of the tall, athletic, point guard, if he can play anything like assistant coach d-mac (or Darnell) they will have found a real winner imo, will make it harder for small guards to trap him and be an advantage for him on defense with his length.
Looking forward to the season, im liking the look of the 36ers, Tigers rosters, if Cedric comes back Breakers will also be strong,im sure they will find a good replacement if he doesnt and im assuming Gleeson will get good imports into Perth, he usually did well getting imports in at the Crocs.
My early top 4 is NZ, Perth, Adelaide, Tigers (in no particular order)
Also cant wait to see how guys like Pace, Ogilvy go and how Geordie rounds out his roster, they will also be decent if Geordie gets some good signings, which id back him in. Seeing Gliddon go around another season for the Taipans will also be exciting.
Something exciting to watch at all teams this year imo,
So should be a strong, interesting NBL next year, with most teams having atleast a semi-realistic chance at playoffs.
Crocs would be a early pick for the spoon, but if Markovic plays atleast aswell as he did in the Razorbacks and the imports games translate well from NZ to Aus and Pace is the next Hodge/Tucker (on the court) and Conklin is the next Dusty they could even surprise a few, but they are big IF's, should be an interesting team non the less.
