How will teams go about filling their rosters?
As usual, there has been a lot of talk about off-season signings for NBL teams. Some have been confirmed (like Moller to Melbourne United) and some seem more like speculation, like Khazzouh to United.
So how are teams going about filling their rosters? I've seen JVG quoted as saying his local signings will depend on the imports he can get. I know Aaron Fearne likes to sign the best local talent he can get, then choose imports according to the gaps he feels need filling.
With NBA teams going to a 17 man roster, how much will the field of available imports be weakened? Does this mean teams should be fighting harder for the local talent available, so as to put together as solid a lineup as possible, or do you wait for the NBA teams to resolve themselves and scramble for the best imports you can afford, then fill out your team with the best of whoever's left?
I guess it will vary from team to team, depending on who's already signed. With only Rotnei Clarke and Torrey Craig signed as imports for next year (and Craig possibly seeking citizenship), there are 22 import positions available to be filled, so pretty well every team needs to go there, eventually.
