Although I wouldn't be $urpri$ed if United pulled that off, Sanders could get an NBA gig pretty easily that would pay a whole lot more than any NBL team could offer. Unless he just wants to ease back into professional basketball and doesn't want the massive spot light that comes with the NBA circus.

The goggles definitely look more like the ones Devin Williams wears.

Hopefully Australia can soften its stance on recreational cannabis use before he arrives.

On first glance

Pros:

- Hustles hard
- Adds some size at 6'9 , 255lbs
- Good rebounder

Cons:
- Only 22 blocked shots in 3 full seasons of college = Not much of a rim protector?
- Only made second team from his college conference.

Is this the big guy Cairns were looking at that had multiple NBL offers??

Yeah, the blocked shots stood out for me considering he's 6'9. Haven't watched any clips, but not much of a vertical maybe?

Two successive United signings that have had the shine taken off them the day of the announcements!

Boti has been so quite this whole free agency. Nobody sharing the news with him anymore? Last year he was on fire.

When he gets one right he doesn't shut up about it.
