Cairns Taipans' import plans
CAIRNS' American cavalry is on its way, with the Taipans just days from signing a point-guard to fill the key playmaker role for the 2016-17 NBL season.
Taipans coach Aaron Fearne returned from the US on Saturday and told the Cairns Post he was hoping to finalise the deal this week.
It is understood the Taipans have placed a premium on signing a floor general to lead the Taipans back to the NBL finals this season.
The team has three import slots this season with Fearne searching for a point guard, a three-man and possibly a backup big man, with the American point guard set to be the first to put pen to paper.Full story
Imports from last season, Markel Starks and Torrey Craig, won’t be returning.
Fearne revealed the first signing would be a newcomer to the NBL, and to Australia.
How's their roster looking at this point?
