Only five Aussie men in the upper tier in Europe, a sign of the economic times? Or just a reflection that more are in the NBA?

Main reason is not economy. As anywhere else, there is a shortage of point guards and 5 men. Australia can not produce good enough players in either position. NBA fringe Americans are preferred to fill the limited non-European spots. Habits and agent influence are also in play to some extent.

I have heard some LEB teams only have 100k Euro budgets. This used to be much much higher a few years ago AFAIK.

McCarron could have got $60k (?) Here in his first year?

I dont get too excited about the second tier continental comps, there is a real mix of how seriously clubs take them. Andersen is playing in the French league and that's a quality competition. The Polish league is decent, and a step up for Dan from Romania, but personally I wouldn't class it with the upper level national leagues.

Don't they also have a ruling re how many imports per team are allowed, so unless they can get a European passport then that also limits the amount of Aussies that can get a gig in a good team in Europe, if the Americans are also putting their hands up for spots?

Massive difference in spending between the top-end teams (Euroleague) versus that of those at the lower-end of the scale.

1.00 RUB = 0.0194583 AUD

Budgets converted into Aussie dollars:

CSKA - $53,676,561.18
Khimki - $31,790,020.28
Lokomotiv (Broekhoff's team) - $21,439,504.76
Unics - $15,502,834.41
Zenit - $10,842,948.65
Nizhny - $6,877,031.42
Enisey - $4,867,459.37
Avtodor - $4,035,502.87
Krasny - $2,437,244.03

VTB United League budget - $7,477,227.59
League Profit: $21,402.42

Kinda puts the NBL's budget into perspective. Very small league profit given the large amounts of spending (but it is a profit).
