I think players are more likely to leak from teams that don't make the playoffs, or in cases where they feel they deserve more minutes.

Tim Coenraad is from QLD and coming off the bench in Illawarra. I think he'll be one candidate.

Rhys Martin is starting but from QLD I think, so might come down to what he's paid at the Hawks.

Cam Tragardh is on the bench in Cairns so could be another to watch.

Crocs could face some pressure.

Goulding, Walker and Gibson are all originally from Tasmania. Not sure where their current allegiances tend to lie though.

If the NBL try to keep the number of teams even and bring in another club, there will be a lot of movement.

Just spit balling without really taking from other squads they could roll out something like...

Vander Blue/Wroe

3 guard rotation with Dillon,McCarron and Blue being able to play both guard spot. Blue is the perfect combo import that can score and dish

Added Hill in at sf as he is only on United due to injuries, Couple of very quality college kids backing him up

Maric and Nevill at centre really locks down the middle obviously to to age i would have a DP learning off them

Import at the 4 someone that can reboud,score and excite crowd with some huge dunks. Benny Anthony backing him up coming back from this year off injured and hope he can get back to where he was before the injury.

Gibson is as good as gone id say and with a big season will command some dough. Will be a lot of decent players trying to get their agents to organise a gig, will be some big exits as seasons end. Bullets will locate the talent and head hunt some stars!

Gibson only goes if Joey signs as coach in Brisbane. Therefore, it would be in Adelaide's (management) best interests to try and lock Joey away before the end of the season.

Agreed Tornado. The Sixers need to lock Joey up ASAP. Has done good things for the club and is a proven coach at NBL level.

I believe Joey and Gibbo are locks for Brisbane, and what I'm hearing is Money will not be an issue for the first couple of seasons in Brisbane.....watch this space....

If we get 2 more teams then I'm interested to see who leaves a club to an existing club as a replacement for someone that goes to Brisbane.

For example if Coenraad goes to Brisbane then there could be a starting spot available and would be fascinated to see if Creek or Weigh for example try and get to a team that will play then 30 minutes a game instead of 20.

I recall the A-League having some similar ups and downs early on when they were going through their restructure. Queensland can't support that many teams at this level no matter which sport. Basketball is no different when it comes to sponsorship dollars, but it is different when it comes to crowds.

Townsville, Cairns and Brisbane are very different markets, they have their own supporter bases and each one should be able to compete and survive in the NBL.

Then there is Victoria, where a second team must be created after Brisbane. Once we have this ten team competition we can consolidate, if we lose a Queensland team to cater for Brisbane I think it is a bad thing.

Would like to see Mick Downer given the head coaching opportunity, instead of an overpaid and over-hyped coach. At they very least he should be a shoe-in for assistant coach.

What happened to Mick Downer? He left the Taipans supposedly to coach the Hawks but then they swooped on Bevo and after that the Taipans signed Gordie McLeod to replace Downer, so where did he end up?
