One at Perth. One in Adelaide yet to be announced. None at Hawks. Not sure of the rest.

I suspect R Carter is still negotiating something. I assumed Perth might go for him.

Looks like Cairns also need a backup guard

Carter would round out this Perth team nicely.

Madgen would be a better fit for the Wildcats than Carter

Perth can't sign Madgen. Wookiee would go all Columbine on the league.

I believe the Hawks have signed Kevin White.

Yes Madgen would be better than Carter, thanks for that captain obvious.

Carter's options are therefore Perth, Cairns, Sydney it seems?

Adelaide have or will get a second import. Hawks have White, so they've completed their roster.

Wonder if Madgen could be an option for Adelaide, and have an import spot up their sleeve if something goes sour mid season...

Some real quality lineups amongst those team. Perth, NZ and Cairns in particular have some decent depth

Tough league to break into. Not many spots for new players.

This year is the strongest that the NBL has been in the last 10-15 years in terms of overall spread of player talent.

I've only been following closely enough to make that kind of judgement since about 2001. So when I said 10-15 years I pretty much meant for all time, from my perspective.

The sheer quality of returning players is phenomenal with Penney, Goulding, Khazzough, Ogilvy, Lisch.

Thornton and Jackson should be top shelf imports.

Childress and Cedric Jackson are two of the best imports of all time. Childress was easily the best player in the league last year when healthy, while Jackson has compiled a record equal to almost anyone else, ever, in terms of MVP calculations and championships in his years in the league.

I don't rate Conklin as highly as those two but he's still a star.

Then you've got plenty of long term NBL guys who are quality players like Wortho, Martin, Redhage, Gibbo, etc.

Anyway- it's good to see all this talent around.

I just realised that I wrote the above post summarising the NBL's top talent without even mentioning Daniel Johnson, Blanchfield, Abercrombie.... etc.

And returning imports like Beal and Ibekwe who are decent.

And all I've talked about is known quantities, or imports we expect will be very good. I'm sure, like every other year, new imports will emerge who are stars like Wilbekin did last year.

You've got about 6 teams that look like they should be quite good. The Crocs and 36ers are the other two, but they're hardly bereft of talent themselves!

When you see the list of guys that haven't been signed yet, only neville and carter really made any consistent contribution.

Yet the incoming oz/nz talent as a whole is a major upgrade.

Kay, Goulding, Majok, Greenwood, Iggy, Penny and Mcdonald. Plus Sobey, Maynard and Hodgson likely to play bigger roles.

The quality of local talent has definately stepped up a level this year, not to mention some very exciting imports.

Should be a great season!

The issue is there are still alot of players being left out in the cold, the list above clearly shows we can easily accommodate 2 more teams and have them with decent talent. also remembering by the time this happens others may return and better imports keep showing up.

after a tv deal expansion must be the next priority before we start to lose these players.

Word has it Odigie is giving up bball altogether

Odigie could earn decent coin playing SEABL. And he'd be able to get a day job because the SEABL commitment Is only a couple of weeknights plus weekends.

In the NBL he was probably on minimum wage of 40K or thereabouts.

"This year is the strongest that the NBL has been in the last 10-15 years in terms of overall spread of player talent."

Well, 15 years ago was probably the other peak period along with now. Before the late 90s the standard was considerably lower.

The period around 06-08 was also high, but I think too much of the talent was condensed amongst the top teams to be up with the 98-02 and 12-16 periods.

Yep definitely enough talent to have Tasmania and Brisbane playing next year.

From the perspective of a Drake U'u that walked out on the Wildcats, that would seem a little foolish these days but there is so much talent and that's not even considering a second NZ team (as an AFL fan I have watched West Coast and Adelaide be diluted because of their success and 3 titles in 4 years and the best junior talent in their squad - I'm a little surprised we haven't heard more about the need of a second team from NZ).

I thought we may have seen more from Matt Andronicos as he has been a Cairns development player for a while but no word about him and there are better free agents out there
