Sixers fear losing Sobey to Europe
ADELAIDE 36ers coach Joey Wright is more concerned he could lose the NBL's Most Improved Player, Nathan Sobey, to an overseas contract than to a rival Aussie club.
Sobey and the 36ers’ first league MVP since Mark Davis in 1987, Jerome Randle, were two conspicuous names on the NBL free agent list revealed on Monday.
Both are concluding 2016-17 with playing contracts in Europe, Sobey backing up is 14-point debut for Greece’s PAOK Thessaloniki with 25 in a win at the weekend.
"If he keeps putting up similar numbers, I wouldn’t be surprised if he got a viable offer," Wright said.
Sobey had an option year to continue with the 36ers but chose not to exercise it with the view of renegotiating.
Also doesn't sound like we're going to bring Jacobsen back and we're looking for a combo guard like a Ramone Moore or a Corey Webster.
