on a team like his beloved *cough* Kings who could start with only two imports possibly...
There's the possibility that quite a few teams will go back to running with two quality imports as opposed to three. Last season was probably a test to see if having three was going to have a major impact, and I can't even say for sure that it had, unless you're the Wildcats or the Dillard Breakers.
Cairns' 3 imports weren't all that spectacular, Bullets ran with two, Sydney's 3rd import didn't have much impact nor Melbourne's, Hollyfield didn't get much mileage in Illawarra and vice versa. While great for exposing the league as an alternative pathway for US high schoolers, Ferguson was a bit disappointing impact-wise. Teams may save a few $$ going with locals instead.
Wookiee, I wouldn't be surprised if Childress gets picked up by United or Cats, particularly if Prather doesn't return. Both teams need star SF for their rosters (I'm assuming Boone has been re-signed), and honestly, only those two would be able to afford him. Sydney probably can, but I don't think he is what the Kings need with Newley and Blanchfield there.
You can pretend he is a stretch four, but he will have difficulty if he's switched onto opposing center or large PF like Daniel Johnson. Kings' primary need right now is an import center that can do it all and those don't come cheap.
The import market for good center and big stretch four isn't really flush with options either. I'm hedging that they have their eyes on someone like Keith Benson. They're probably hoping he doesn't get picked up by an NBA team after the summer leagues, and he's going to cost more than a pretty penny.
