36ers sign Motum

After the release of Mitch Creek the Adelaide 36ers have signed Motum. An announcement will be coming out in the next couple of weeks. Obviously you don't have to trust me but mark my words because it's coming.

If that's true then all they need is a high quality 3 such as Tokoto and they are good

Sobey / Doyle
*Moore / Teys
*Import / Drmic / McVeigh
Motum / Deng
Johnson / Froling

Actually they probably need to use a 3rd import at the 1/2 position

So they may have signed Motum.

Why does this come out now? It just makes it seem less credible

That backcourt will be an absolute disaster.

Need that import 3 to be a rebounding and penetrating beast, kind of like ... well ... Mitch Creek.

Motum is an upgrade on Creek obviously but we'll wait and see.

Well, that's a handy replacement.
Someone like a Carrick Felix would be ideal for the starting 3 spot.

I think they need a distributor more than a swingman, I think they need to work out what role Moore will play and go with the other (1 or 3) but otherwise they will be crap next season

OP, yes, don't trust you for a second. Just making up shit. Might as well start a topic that Will Wise III is about to get signed as new import. Pure conjecture!!!

At least you got the Creek leaving part correct.
I don't have faith in current sixers backcourt either

I think people are undervaluing the signing of McVeigh

McVeigh will struggle at NBL level. Struggled to get minutes at college, hence why he bailed. The NBL is a huge step up from that.

McVeigh & Froling, like most rookies, will take a year or two to have an impact.

Yes we can't expect much from McVeigh or Froling. If Motum is signed, then we’re going to be able to pull opposing bigs out of the paint nicely, so we need a strong three who can attack the rim and finish through contact. But our rebounding is going to be awful at the 4 & 5, so we also need a strong rebounder there.

I hope the Sixers can afford a good 3rd import if Motum does sign, because I think we will need another good guard to share the minutes with Sobey and Moore.

I think if you can get Motum and then bring in Chill or Conger it's a very similar side to last year.

Also leaves Adelaide with an import spot up their sleeve in case of injury.

Basically if they get Motum then they all good as they can get a gun small forward to replace Creek and a starting point guard.

Without Motum, they will be exposed as they need a starting 1,3 & 4 but they only have 2 import slots.

Didn't Anadolu Efes have a team option on Motum for 18/19 season? Unless they have declared they won't pick it up by the deadline, Motum won't be available.

I'd take Creek any day of the week.

He would want a big pay day.

Those imports better be good because the bench looks weak
