Free Agency winners and losers

Has been a very busy free agency period so far.
Some teams look to be starting with only 2 imports as we see more overseas and college players come home.

Thoughts so far

Sydney could really win if they get a new coach.

If this thread is about free agency and free agents, can I ask what Adelaide has done (with NBL free agents) to deserve third spot?

36ers retaining DJ was a big free agency win as many clubs were trying to get him.

Sydney obviously getting Bogut and retaining Randle are big wins.

Perth getting Norton and Kay setting up the next generation is also a great signing.

And getting these top young guys back into the NBL like Froling, McVeigh, Naar, Wilson are also great gets for 36ers, Hawks, Kings.

Hawks have done well by sitting still not going early just signing up a bunch of average players (ie Brisbane) then bringing in a top College guy on Naar, and Blanchfield, whilst being likely to be able to keep the bulk of their team from last year if they wish.

Brisbane, im critical of, the only above average signing they have made is Gliddon and bringing Bairstow back, and if they are planning to start both Cadee and Hodgson I think that is a mistake. However Bairstow returning (if healthy) is really good, and if they get a really good import SF then they will be atleast competitive. I just hope Lemanis realises that the NBL is alot tougher than the FIBA Aisa cup.

If Illawarra get either Jervis or Andersen to go with Naar and Blanchfield they will be better than people expect.

The NBL twitter tried to dress up some of Cairns signings as saying they had "lured" three Wildcats in the off-season...

Hahah 'lured', all three will be out of the league in 2 years.
Honestly don’t know why Cairns bothered signing DKD so early in the off season, it’s not like he would have been snapped up anywhere else. Should have waited a month or two and seen who else was out there

According to Boti Rob Beveridge has ruled out Tom Jervis which only increases his chances of coming back to Perth.
