Duop Reath & Keanu Pinder

Thought I might as well put this in one thread.
Could these guys be the injection of Young Talent the Wildcats need?

I don't follow college ball, so don't really no how good these guys are. Is Reath an outside chance to get drafted??

He spent his teenage years in Perth, and from the little I have read speaks very fondly of it, plus it seems family is important.
He's a big unit, but apparently also athletic, and from what I can gather he's a decent scorer rather than just a rebounder.

Pindar is of course a WA lad, and Indigenous, would be great to see him in red. Not sure if he'd be a 3 or 4?

I know Keanu personally and he isn't about to take a Wildcats salary over what he could get in Europe.

Pinder is DP material only apparently.

Pinder wouldn't take Wildcats money? he averaged a point a game! Get with it, he may not get an offer in the league let alone turn it down. You obviously don't know anything about Europe and the money they pay rookies without a resume.

Pinder wouldn't be an Impact player on any NBL team right now. Has a lot of improving to do.

Pinder is DP at best..might need to put up numbers in state league first...hasn't really had an impact in the NCAA this season.

Reath might get some second round looks in the draft but more than likely he'll get a summer league call up and hopefully performs to see what comes of that.

Reath is more NBL ready and a great young prospect.
A lot depends on how Perth fill their bench spots next season.

I coached Duop as an Under 18 ......he dunked the ball of a missed free throw that was NBL worthy.

Being from WA is no guarantee that he'd come back to us - he'll have his sights on the best path for him.

His brother was connected to East Perth now, wonder if they are in his ear?

Biggest question is where does landale go?

Indeed, he won't turn down a decent Europe opportunity for the NBL.
But it might tip the scales in our favour if he were considering similar offers from around Aus.
