SEABL signing changes rules views
Anthony Drmic, has signed a contract with Dandanong for season 2018 in the SEABL. Surely a full time NBL contracted player shouldn't be allowed to sign on for a full SEABL season in the off-season. It should strictly be a development league for the next-gen, not a place where any NBL full time regular contracted off this standard should be able to play in the off-season. He s blocking the chance for a decent young local to develop. There should be tighter restrictions eg maybe only development NBL contract players allowed to play in the SEABL, but not guys who sometimes are an NBL standard starting 5 player or 6th man standard eg 15-20 minutes per game NBL guys..
The rules should be tighter eg NBL development contract players only, or guys who only played say a mimumum of three NBL games in season just gone.. The SEABL should not be a place where NBL local players should be able to "DOUBLE-DIP and play in the SEABL to stay in shape and get $ when they have NBL contracts and are NBL established players. It's a development league. It's why I reckon it should be in the NBL main season and SEABL form affiliate deals with NBL clubs eg like NBA and G-League, then guys dropped or missing out on match day 12 can play in SEABL(reserves basically) affiliate team. But yes really surprised a guy like Anthony Drimic standard player should be allowed to sign in SEABL.
Foreign imports different eg Garret Jackson types, as they are not locals and taking up an import spot..
