Good on him.

Have seen him play over here in NZ - and he is an amazing talent.

With more minutes and a bit more freedom, he can be a genuine star of the league.

It's a win for everybody.

Great for Cadee will get more opportunity with the Kings. I wouldn't say sucked in sixers though they had one guard too many imo

Good signing and being a local boy with home connections can mean a saving of $20k per season for both sides.

I agree that it's potentially a win for both sides. Think he has solid potential to be a crafty, freelancing point guard but should get more opportunity to do that interstate.

In that category of player where I will be happy to see him succeed somewhere, but wouldn't mortgage the house to keep him if it came to that (whereas I would more so with Gibson, Petrie and Johnson).

Cadee on Twitter:

Just want to thank the @Adelaide36ers for the last 2 years. Been a real pleasure. Loved my time there and being able to call it home!

I agree Isaac. I was hoping NZ would sign him to play backup PG but he is better than that and deserves more minutes than he's been getting.

Positive news and good press for Sydney Kings, they are already making what appear to be good decisions and I would suggest stirring up some pre season passion and interest in basketball & the NBL; This is contrary to what we have been experiencing in Melbourne!

Agree Mystro,

I was hoping we would pick him up. Would have been a nice fit for the Breakers. I have seen him over here in NZ - and his open-court, trans, up-tempo game is very good.

Always saw him as proud Sydney boy, so didn't really believe it was ever on the cards.


Its a win because it was unfair on Cadee, given his skill, to have to be essentially the 4th PG. But it was also unfair on Ervin and Gibson, two great players, to have to give their minutes to two other PGs.

Either way - Adelaide still have Gibson and Ervin. and Cadee gets the opportunity he deserves in SYD

Had he gone to college this upcoming season would have been his rookie year. He has worn the potential tag for a few years now so in someway it's time for him to put up or shut up.
Will he be starting guard from day one?

IMO he will never be more than a useful back up guard in the NBL. Has great attributes in speed and ability to see the game but is weak defensively and with his shooting mechanics and inability to be a consistent scorer/outside threat he somewhat hinders his before mentioned up side.

You're a good kid Jason and I wish you all the best! I hope you prove me wrong...

Would now like to see the Sixers retain Carter as the 3rd guard.

Guard rotation of Import, Gibbo and Carter with Teys floating between SG/SF.

Carter and Teys as your bench guards I think most teams would be happy with that

Best of luck at the Kings Cadee, he is sort of in between a starter and a really good back up imo, too good to be a 15 min a game player, but not sure he is good enough to be a 25+min a game player on a strong team, time will tell and i hope the Kings give him a good shot.

I personally expected him to leave and wanted to Keep Carter over him as the back up guard anyway, so not too phased.

At worse the sixer will have Gibbo, a import, Teys and say Daly, so still a very solid back court and to me thats the worse case scenario, which i would be happy to have, but yea im a Carter fan so hoping we can keep him, which will probably mean Daly is 11th man (if we can fit him in).

If the choice is between Cadee or Carter I take Carter. Carter is flashy and a rick taker but can also turn a game as he did for the 36ers v Melbourne.

Cadee never really elevated to the next level as was predicted while here. Adnam or Daly could fill the spot for less money and less points too.

Cadee never got the minutes at Gold Coast or Adelaide to step up to the next level so some of these comments are a little unfair on him.
Judge him after he's started some games or at least gotten a decent run with the Kings.

I would have been fretting about Jason's departure 12 months ago but Brendan Tey's major breakout last season has me optimistic that the Sixers can cover the loss of Cadee.

As mentioned by others, it creates a win/win scenario for both parties in this instance.

I wish him the best and hope he does rise to another level and has success with the Kings (except when they play the Sixers).

Great to see the Kings snag Cadee... As has already been said, he's been able to shine when given the minutes, and hopefully that will continue with Sydney... I hope he isn't the starting PG, I don't think he's quite there yet, but if he gets really decent minutes to test him and work him harder, totally cool with that... I think he would be a great first off the bench and I think that would give him that extra boost as like has also been said, his quickness and transition offence is really great to watch and it would be great to see him keep his confidence up shooting from outside... Would hate for him to have nailed them against us so many times but not be able to do it FOR us :)

Hopefully this has a wider benefit for the team as well, trying to pull in some of the Westie fans that might have stayed away up until now, always good to get a Bankstown boy on board...

Well , this has the potential to be as big a mistake for the 36ers as losing Aaron Bruce, a player who when we had him had already played reasonably well for the boomers.

Not sorry at all to see him go - was obvious once Gibson arrived his days were numbered, in all seriousness I wish him well ,

I agree with some of the other comments his shooting technique is going to hold him back, no pull up jumper and a below average 3pt shot means you can lay off him. That said in the open court he's quick on quick.

I have never understood why 36er fans laud Creek but disparage Cadee. There is only 1 year difference in age.

Cadee had the starting job for a season whereas it has generally eluded Creek. I think people are enamoured with his style of play too because it is fun to watch.

That said, I put them in the same basket. Nice to have, not end of the world to lose if the alternative is bench minutes forever. If Creek jumped ship for bigger minutes trying to prove himself once and for all, I wouldn't cry about the loss, but I'd definitely hope to see him succeed.

For the amusement factor and to drive Cadee insane, if Gibson was a free agent he should say in the paper that he really wants to play for Sydney next year :P

Good luck to Cadee. He deserves a decent opportunity and he has made the right choice.

Totally agree! Both players are 'nice to have', but not essentials. Also great advocates off court too.
I think they're coming to a bit of a crossroads. They're certainly still young, but there's a lot of talk about their potential, which will sooner rather than later get a little tired. How long do you wait (how many coaches - Creek, or teams - Cadee) do they have before they either really hit their straps, or just solidify that they're really good 6th or 7th mans. Good luck to them though!

Good luck to him really. He wants the opportunity to start and if the 36ers sign another import guard (or we somehow manage to get Ervin back here) then he'd be back on the bench.

Can't blame him to be honest, I hope he does well in Sydney (though not when playing Adelaide ;-) )

If I was the 36ers

Import (10)/Daly(1)
Gibson (10)/Teys (1)
Import (10)/Creek (6)
Petrie (8)/Anthony (5)
Johnson (8)/Schenscher (9)

Would look for the Small Forward to be a "3 and D" guy

Boti has an article on his site for those interested, noting that the Sixers hadn't made Cadee an offer by the time he signed with Sydney. Mentioned that he was on a bit from his Marty contract but willing to take a pay cut to stay. If Joey wasn't interested enough to make an offer, then sounds like Cadee made the right choice and Joey won't be too concerned.

Assuming they haven't saved anything on the Schenscher contract, maybe this is a chance to upgrade a bit on the budget import allowance they had for Frye last time.

Overall I am happy for Jason because he will have more opportunities.

Remember this kid came back from a horrific car accident, so I cannot help but to support him as he has overcome big obstacles.

However, there lingers still some sadness, as Jason was a very servicable PG off the bench for the Sixers, especially when he is pushing the ball.

I wish him all the best and hope the Sixer fans give him a warm welcome when he visits next because he game the team 2 good years.

He is 24 and the criticism is rediculous, he is 5 years off his prime and if he played another 10 seasons in the NBL then I don't think it would be a massive surprise. Let the young fella play and I'm sure he will learn from his errors and hopefully he gets along with his new coach!

Well done Jason and best of luck mate

I think the criticism is just people getting itchy feet, wanting the basketball to be back on (yeah I know NBA is on)

Boti's source looked to be Cadee? If so, if Cadee didn't think the 36ers made a real contract offer, that's enough to know. Either they didn't, or he didn't judge whatever they did as serious enough.

I dare say either the 36ers were wanting to keep Carter and add a 2nd import next season so didnt have room for Cadee

or

were waiting to see what happened with Schenscher and DJ to see how much they had to spend on the 2 imports plus the back up guard (cadees spot) to work out if they could fit Cadee in, and the kings came in with a really good offer and likely more court time so Cadee went for it.

Either way cant blame Cadee for taking it, especially given its his home city,

if the 36ers are hoping to have Import, Gibson, Teys, Carter in the guard rotation there wasnt really room for Cadee so they are probably not too phased,

so as others have said its quite possibly a win win, i sort of expected Cadee to leave, he left Joey in the GC and i thought he would get offered more minutes/money elsewhere,

so i personally would have been surprised if did stick around, i spose the winning last season at the 36ers and getting pretty close to a title may have tempted him to stick around at a lesser role and try for a championship, but in the end it wasnt offered to him (atleast quickly enough) or the other offer was too good.

Best of luck to Cadee at the kings, i will be very interested to see how the rest of his career turns out.

Negotiations can take place without a contract offer being made.
