Wildcats want Ennis-Prather hybrid
Perth Wildcats head coach Trevor Gleeson and his recruiting team, which includes assistant coaches Matt Nielsen and Adam Forde, have arrived in Las Vegas for the 2018 NBA Summer League.
The goal? To snare a star import to fill the final spot on the Wildcats 2018/19 playing roster.
Gleeson revealed to The West Australian that he's after a gun small forward with strong defensive skills - which would come as no surprise to any Gleeson-era Wildcats fan.
We've done pretty well in the small forward position and it’s something we’re keen on filling again," Gleeson said.
"If we can get somewhere in between a James Ennis and a Casey Prather, we’ll be pretty happy. It’s hard to get those types of players but we’ll do the best we can."
