Sydney Kings sign former Fremantle Docker

old news but they've made it OFFICIAL.


The Sydney Kings are thrilled to announce that promising forward Craig Moller has been signed as a Development Player for the 2016-17 NBL season.

The 22 year old 202cm (6'8) Moller will become a part of a select group of athletes to have played both Australian rules football and basketball at the elite level.

Head coach Andrew Gaze has been impressed by Moller’s tireless efforts in proving himself worthy of a spot on the Kings roster.

Stuff the DP's haven't they still got 1-2 players to sign yet to their actual roster?

Pretty sure the Kings are the only team who haven't completed their roster yet.

Yup, old news, I think was announced with their BANSW announcement last week? From what I've seen of him in pre-season, he's definitely working hard and it's a well-deserved DP spot... Just glad that it's not a full roster spot if only for the reason that I don't have to find his hair in Lego form...

Two full roster players to go... very frustrating and I don't see the point with waiting, unless they're waiting for someone special, but you'd think that the two remaining spots would be back up level... They've had a good look at the team against the Hawks and against Chinese level competition, so they would be aware of what gaps they need to fill... from what I've read elsewhere, if they're running a lot of shuffle that wouldn't necessarily mean they require a focused pass-first PG option, even though that would be handy, and need a backup SF and unless Jules makes it back soon, a decent back up big...

Really wish we didn't miss out on Trist last season...

It was 23

But it is now 25 "The maximum age of development players is now 25 years old and they can play as many games as a club desires."

Good signing. Really nice season for the Miners in SEABL. Not many guys will out rebound him.
