Premier League - imports and movement

Have heard a lot about other leagues on this forum. What's happening in Premier League?

I heard North have Starling. West have a couple of imports. Who else have teams signed? What other movement has there been? Will clubs be utilising two imports?

And most importantly - who is looking like title contenders?

Woodville Men
Myles someone is a guard from Eastern, I think?
Chris Clausen & Daniel Carlin from central plus they have Scott Whitmore coaching also

Woodville ladies, I hope Deanna Troia returns, that's for sure.

I thought Woodville also had two imports but no names.

Woodville might be a stacked team if that is the case. Not sure who else will be that strong

Per the Warriors Facebook page. Seems like he's from a div 3 college. Had ok numbers but can't find any highlights.

Any other clubs announced imports or whispers about who they might be?

The men's team are pleased to announce the signing of new American Import Jason Luhnow.

Jason is a graduate of Lewis & Clark University, Portland Oregon and currently resides in Lake Oswego, Oregon.

Jason is a combo guard standing at 6’2

He will be arriving in Adelaide on January 18th.

"Jason comes highly recommended from numerous sources we have in Portland, he is a strong rebounding combo guard that can shoot from distance, we have been in conversation with Jason for sometime and we are please to get him to Australia so early in our pre season. I looked at about 7-8 guards and Jason ticked all of the boxes. For me it wasn’t about trying to find another Nelson Kirksey (very hard to do) it was about recruiting a player that fills the gap we have in our squad. We think we have done that with Jason"

Scott Whitmore, Head Coach

Jason will be the second player from Lewis & Clark to play for Scott, Josh Kollasch played under Scott in 2011 while at Centrals.

Jason will join four other new warriors for 2017, Daniel Carlin, Chris Clausen, Myles Thiele and Luke Frost.

Welcome to the Warriors Jason we look forward to your arrival and input to our Mens team!

North men:
Tom Rowe retired (captain)

Luke Mapunda is back from early retirement to run with Alex Starling & the returning Aric Miller as the two imports.

John Wernham is back from previous Rockets stint.

Darcy Aistrope has been recruited from Eastern

No doubt, they will make the playoffs

Thoughts?

North might be OK this year especially with another year of experience with their younger brigade.

Also for North is Starling playing footy? Surely that has to efffect his performance?

Without him Southern do look to be 1 hit wonders.

There is now a Premier League on facebook

https://www.facebook.com/basketballpremierleague/?fref=ts

It will talk about all the official signings so far.

North mens look like the favourites so far but it is still too early.

Tigers men will be rebuilding with the loss of Starling and probably Creek however they have done some innovative work getting Robert Linton from interstate. They will get a few more players and still be competitive. They also have a great coach.

No mention of Sixer players but I would say Creek would probably have a rest in the off season but that guy is a machine so he will probably take part in the season. Usually Sixers players wait to see how the NBL season pans out and then decide if they will stick around, so I doubt none of them will commit to anything this soon.

Who is Robert Linton? I'm hearing Sam Johns might leave too.

They'd want to have a good import lined up to replace Starling if they want to stay competitive.

South have announced Chas McCormick as their head coach. Not sure if they have any players though. Might be scraping the bottom of the barrel.

Womens could be a case of haves & have nots.

Hearing Elsworthy to Sturt. McKays already announced to Flames. Why is everyone leaving North?

Have also heard Skinner to Tigers & Ally Wilson to play for Mavs.

Forestville have lost Doyle & Gerlach. Is Rios returning? Have heard they have another import but not sure if it's on top of Rios or instead of.

Sounds like teams have mostly gone for two imports.

If Norwood have Lycett & Holmes with 2 imports & KB coaching lookout.

Doyle is a SEABL team. I want to say Bendigo or Ballarat.

Girls have lost to old age/retirement.

Thanks. Big loss. FV need to consider the trade off for one family being the pride of the club over the entire community with so many players that have left particularly junior girls. It is startig to show at Premier level.

Surely Majok Deng will play for them? Him, Rios & an import would still see them top 5.

Plus Drmic & Deng to F/ville + import/s?

I think if Andy can't win with that team he will be following his wife out the door.

The bar must now be generating lots of money!!

Am hearing Drmic to Norwood.

Jo Hill out of retirement. Seems like North are good at unretiring!

I guess the Premier League is not the topic on the tip of everyone's tongues right now but any more news on player movement or recruitment
