Good signing for United, what are the kings doing, looks like he followed Vickerman who would no his strengths. He's a natural three man and looks bigger than 6 ft 8. Very good rebounder and defender going by his seabl stats and can score.

Great signing... & I think he's 6'10".
Kings - fools.
Not too many other young Aussies with that size, athleticism & skill set going round.

Did anyone watch his MONSTER seabl near triple double game last week?

Kid. Can. Ball!

That was probably his draft height as 17/18 year old, could've easily grown two inches since then. Shane Heal in his commentary said he looked bigger than his supposed height.

Really dumb to let him walk. Not good signs so far from Sydney, losing Vickerman as assistant followed by the best young prospect on the roster.

What's the big deal with this guy? He's 6'8 (was listed at 203cm before the season and even that at times seemed generous), can't dribble, can't shoot, is skinny and will be 23 before the season starts. Unless there's some sort of miraculous turn around, I doubt he'll ever be much more than an undersized, hustling big at NBL level.

Yep not really a good thing if you look at it from a 'talent farming' perspective. I wonder if JVG feels its easier to buy rather than develop. 3 years mean Utd will take over his development.

I think Moller feels that realisticaly after adding Blanchfield, there wouldn't be much playing time left for him at his preferred 3 spot and probably more money with Utd too.

@ twenty four; I'd tell you to go watch a couple of the late season games where he flashed some serious potential, but I'm sure there are better ways to spend a long weekend...

Seriously first question if Boone re-signing is good, now a question why Moller is a big deal. Do people actually watch NBL or just like asking stupid questions?

Watch the highlight reel. Seabl player of the week. He got very few chances to impress with the Kings, but Vickerman obviously sees his talent.

Was 2 assists off a triple double in this game & even though he was tall as, was the best ball handler in junior reps and played a lot of PG up to under 14s.

I really like Melbourne's roster for next season, with a great mix of established talent, youth (Adnam & Moller) plus size & rebounding potential - as we all know 80% of the shot attempts are gonna be coming from the backcourt.

Great roster management!

Air Delay, that clip doesn't change much for me. Shaky looking handle (bringing it up the floor, he looks like an 8 year old), horrible jumper that takes too long to leave his hands. Obviously pretty athletic and can play D, and he made a couple of nice plays, but then there was some pretty terrible defence allowing him to make them, as well.

(Side note: I've just realised that I'm pretty much describing Dante Exum's game, too. That is not a good thing.)

Not certain you've seen Moller play, check out the United site to get some Nbl highlights. At 22 lots of up side here, Kings must have something else planned.

Not excited about this signing but at the same time don't see him playing major minutes so not too concerned.

Seems like Utd are still waiting on a legit PG though and I doubt Ware is going to return.

what a lackluster signing - how much do you reckon he got like 60,000 a year?

They're going to need much more to look anywhere near decent.

and yeah that's the Kings plan and it worked tremendously last year! They moved up one ladder spot and spent probably 2.5 million.

He played under Vickerman last season, don't think they would of signed him if they didn't think he was any good.

Good chance of being more than 11th man, he could be your main SF backup. Couldn't recall if it was Vickerman or Crivelli that said they're targeting an import starting SF, probably why Blanchfield took off.

If the rumour about Dillon joining is true then you only have 3 roster spots left. You still need an import starting PG, the starting import SF and one more signing, which is rumoured to be Khazzouh. Maybe that's what entice him the most to switch, playing time at 3.

So UTD will look like-

1. Gun Import
2. CG43
3. 3rd Import
4. Anderson
5. Majok
6. Boone (at centre)
7. Adnam (back up PG)
8. Moller (back up 3)
9. Wesley (back up 4)

*Not necessarily in that order.

Who else? Khazzouh & Tomlinson?

Pretty balanced line up!!!!

Tell me more about smoking dog turd - specifically the taste, the smell and the texture. Oh and is it rolled and if so with what? I'm intrigued at this new alternative to marijuana and tobacco.

re: Craig Moller signs with United

On one hand Blanchfield for Moller is a loss for United, I still really like this signing but with hearing about Khazzouh joining United all I can think is that United have someone in Tai Wesley that's nearly impossible to stop down low and yet won't see the court time he deserves to go to work!

United are stacked and I wouldn't hate seeing Childress play for United, he'd be awesome and then get injured and be replaced after Christmas... if Childress only got a 3 month stint at United then would that be really that bad ? You just know they are gonna upgrade with a new import anyone (as long as that Kromah or whatever his name is doesn't return). Moller and other swingmem for United will benefit from Josh's experience.

If the rosters suggested above are what we have to expect from the other teams then this will be an even better season with really good players struggling to even get court time

Wesley doesn't get more minutes because unfortunately for about half the game the other team gets the ball too.

IMO, Wesley didn't deliver anywhere near enough in his limited chances under DD. His post moves are nice but he rarely converted them. His outside shot is ordinary at best and he seemed to take far too many of them.

Bench player.

I like this signing. I think Melbourne needed more players who can & will contribute without the ball in their hands, and Moller definitely fits that description.
