Joey wright is deep in negotiations with Melbourne. The deal is all but done, expected to be finalized within a week

Good luck to him, I'm very happy with this for all parties. United will be asked to just run shoot and shoot. Adelaide will actually be in a position to form some structured set plays when the Stars struggle and with our core have a chance to win a playoff series. This isn't as big a loss as people will panic on and assume.

Joey has another year on his last contract doesn't he? Or did he re-sign before this season?

Joey has at least another year, maybe two.

The wording is suss too. Previous experience coaching an NBL team a requirement? That limits the field somewhat!

It's probably a troll but again if true no big loss at all. When push comes to shove and the heat is well and truly on he seems to melt.

Personally I hope note but would a pro club really advertise a coaching gig like this? Surley it's word of mouth or head hunting.

I honestly wouldn't be surprised if this happened given how aggressive and cashed up Melbourne are. I dare say Joey would be tempted to go somewhere like that regardless of contract. But this isn't legit.

If that is the case then perhaps since they have new owners Joey just has to reapply for his job.

if you are someone looking to become a permanent resident you need to demonstrate that you have a job or skill set that is unique and that only you can fulfil that task. ergo you aren't taking a job off a local.

If this is some official type thing for Joey to simply read appont for the job, that is some weird adelaide type stuff. So little faith these days. This is odd.

Joey's still got another two years to go on his contract so not sure about the needing to re-apply angle. If it's legit it doesn't sound good at all and chances are he would probably take Randle with him.

Joey's struck me as never really being that happy here and I think that might be in part because at Brisbane & Gold Coast he was used to having basically an unlimited budget and would get everything he asked for but here there is a budget, at MU obviously things would go back to how they were.

It would be extremely disappointing if both Joey & Randle left.

The other side of it if it's true that the 36ers are going to be getting a new owner then I think one aspect of that is all contracts become null and void and need to be re-negotiated.

I remember when the SOS group took over after Ninnis' first year as coach they announced they were going to bring him back even though he still had a year to go on his contract which gave the impression with the ownership change his contract had become null and void and they were essentially re-signing him.

Unless they happened to be incredibly fortuitous in all of their contracts to include a clause regarding change of ownership, then i'd say all contracts remain in tact subject to mutual agreement or breach of agreement otherwise. Contracts don't just become null and void in change of ownership or shareholding.

Just listen to "Ken Cole was here". Might seem weird on the surface but jobs being advertised for the people expected to get them isn't uncommon. I'd say he already has the job that he's applying for.

One giveaway I noticed right away is the stipulation for 10 years of NBL coaching experience. That limits the field significantly...

Adelaide Basketball Ltd are the owners of the Adelaide 36ers with the registered business name of "Adelaide 36ers".

What would they be doing advertising a head coach role for anyone else including a district club?

Wright is contracted so there is no reason for them to be advertising for the role...

This just appears to be a bizarre maneuver by the 36ers or a super fraudulent effort by someone.

Hopefully that is the case in regards to NBL teams but always struck me as a bit odd the SOS group announcing Ninnis would be brought back when he was under contract already.

I'm sure there is method to this madness...

I guess the suggestion here is Adelaide is altering the requirements of the job role to assist Joey in getting his permanent residence. The only reason they would publicly advertise for the job is if that were a requirement as part of legitimizing it.

Joey signed a three year extension during the 2015-16 season which started this season so he has two years left unless I was correct that contracts become null and void with a change of ownership thus making this advertisement probably some legal formality.

Zodiac, the suggestion is more to do with changing the definition of the role for permanent residency purposes than change of ownership or a contractual thing.

Like a few posters have said already, this is DEFINITELY the 36ers fulfilling the requirement to advertise to get Joey Permanent Residency in Australia. Nothing more to it.

I THINK, as Ken Cole was here stated, it is do do with proving that it is a specialised job, i.e must have 10 years professional coaching experience. It's to show that not anyone can do it and you aren't taking a job from a resident, basically.

This is clearly for PR purposes. The government dept. requirements want a copy of the job role ad and the easiest way to do this is to list on Seek.

No NBL head coaching positions are ever on Seek, so why would the Sixers role be on it now.

It is not a "bizarre" attempt. It is a Department of Immigration requirement that the job/role be advertised. A copy of the job ad must be included with all documentation. Seek happens to be the most popular job search website so it was used.

Obviously for this specific instance, it is a facade and Wright will be picked defeating ghe purpose of the regulations.

The laws have more effective application when it comes to jobs where a relationship hasn't already been established with a foreign worker.

Last time I was involved in this process, there was no requirement to re-advertise, provided the nominated person has been doing the job for at least 2 years under a 457 visa.

I only say "bizarre" because it's a bit silly if the government requires such a blatantly phony paper-trail for such a highly specialised role.

Anon may have been referring to the residency application ("look, there are Australians who can do the job"), not the actual head coaching position.

There's nothing obvious to indicate that this is next level trolling. No throw away line making the joke clear enough.
