Joey having a look at Ross

6'8" - 100 kg. Looks like a good size unit.


Guarantee to get paid is a big selling point to come to NBL - too many stories of European teams not fulfilling their contracts.

Didnt even need to read the photo caption to know it was the white guy. No one wants to admit it for politically correct reasons, but the black dudes bring the fans, the white dudes bring buzz cut haircuts and 10 and 5. Hope Joey has a good eye for new talent, 6ers cant afford to get it wrong or last season was a one off.

Why is he looking at another PF?

He would have to be the budget import so I hope they get him and get someone better than Jamar with the left over cash. If it means a gun import and no Jamar Wilson I'll take christopherson if we had to.

I think its more the case he is just on Joeys vegas summer league team, along with 8 other guys, not sure it guarantees he is high on Joeys list,

If DJ stays i would of thought we would get a import swingman on the cheap.

If DJ leaves i would guess they would go a more stud/proven import big or swingman and a cheapish Aussie.

Not sure Ross fits into those scenarios.

Unless they are going to get him to replace DJ and get a proven/star aussie swingman/guard?? but not sure who is out there?? wouldnt have thought many??

Forget the scenarios where Wilson isn't signed. DJ would be the unknown, not Wilson.

And as for white dud(e)s, Clarke, Wilkinson, Lisch, Morrison, Conklin? All serviceable to MVP range as imports. Ballinger in his day was top five in almost every major stats category. You want to talk about the politically correct thing? How about seeing that an import is white and assuming his stats will be average?

Ross looks to be a bit of the DJ mould...can play inside and out. Only seen highlights so hard to say how good he is and the competition he was against. Looks to have all the tools though?

I was hoping Joey would be going for someone more like Matthew Hezekiah...

Just cause a dude is White doesn't mean he can't play.

He looks like he'd be more the servicable in the NBL so if he fits a need why bag him cause he isn't a massive highlight player.

Pretty sure Hudson, Wilkinson & Redage weren't higlight reel white dudes who put together good numbers on good teams and fitted team roles really well.

Looks a little like the 1996 Tony Ronaldson model just will less space for "junk in the trunk"
