36ers closing in on Brock Motum and Richie Edwards
'THE Adelaide 36ers are close to securing Boomers World Cup forward Brock Motum and also are hoping to suit New Zealand-born forward Richie Edwards in the NBL this season.
Brisbane-born Motum, 24 and 208cm, was cut this week by the NBA's Utah Jazz and is exploring his options.
The 36ers are among them.
With Joe Ingles snapped up by the Jazz, Adelaide is looking to suit Edwards while starting swingman Mitch Creek is on injury waivers.
Edwards is a 201cm New Zealand-born forward who played college basketball at Valparaiso before transferring to Arizona State.
He was a teammate at Arizona of new Hawks import Jahii Carson and also is well known to Adelaide forward BJ Anthony.'
Looks like we have a couple options we're looking at for injury replacements etc.
Anyone know much about Edwards?
Doesn't really sound like we're 'close to securing' Motum, but would be a very handy pickup for us. Would he be replacing Creek? Or DQ?
