Tom Wright NBL?

After watching Spectres v Tigers in SEABL last night, if Tom Wilson is going to get minutes at the Kings then I'm sure Tom Wright could be extremely valuable as a 3rd import to any NBL side. A genuine scorer and a great passer.

He's had a very good season. Would be one of a large number of players hoping for increased opportunities as the NBL expands.

Who else from SEABL would consider themselves a chance?

Sam McDaniel
Kyle Bowen
Lucas Barker
Felix Von Hofe??

Others?

Sorry to be bitching but why can't when talking of SEABL imports, you include their position otherwise for us not familiar we just see these as names.

I apologize for the original post. It was certainly meant as a compliment to Tom. I thought he was American and could take an import spot well now I know he is Aussie he definitely could play NBL and be a very valuable player.
He could play the 1 or 2 and is an excellent defender, Why don't some of you NBL coaches get out to SEABL basketball and check out some new talent instead of regurgitating the some ols faces all the time.

Suggesting that NBL coaches (and their assistants) aren't aware of what's out there in the SEABL is a bit crazy.

Yes you often see NBL coaches and players at SEABL games.

Lol, in his thirties and never seen a shot he doesn't like. Maybe five years ago but not anymore.

Tom Wright, one year younger than Mou. Just saying, Relevant in the context of this discussion.

Personally prefer Von Hofe, and although older teams that need shooting could look at Mou and Wright.

Not that I have an opinion either way, but any player hoping to get a gig in the NBL would have to be similar or better than other recent SEABL graduates.

Weeks, Adnam, Moller, etc

Looking at Tom's stats I don't get that impression.

Yes, this year is his best year, but he turns 30 this year and has been an NBL development player in the past.

Unfortunately it would appear the boat may have sailed for Tom as it would look like he hasn't shown enough.

Also, I don't think he is a one in the NBL and I don't think he is a good enough shooter as a 2.

Agree with comments. Boat may have sailed. Not a good enough shooter. Adnam and Moller had to do their time on the pine. they had coaches who supported them. Hard to find.

Adnam. If he was any good he would still be at United.

Hooley, Wilson, Moller all done very well in seabl and Moller and hooley had good roles in nbl last season. Moller started a few games and made nbl team trip to China. Nothing wrong playing seabl to get to nbl..

Daly has been consistently good for the Pioneers. Three years younger, maybe a chance for a backup pg spot.

Agree - Hooley did well in SEABL last year (& again this year). He was fortunate to get a spot with Daniel Dilllon's injury and he made the most of it, especially towards the end of last season and the finals - playing some important minutes as a role player.

Will be interesting to see how he backs up this year, as well as Moller as Moller looks like he has been ear-marked to get more minutes next season with Tai Wesley moving on.

For me, of the recent SEABL graduates, I'd say Weeks & Moller have played the best in the NBL.

Adnam has to find the right coach and system. He lit it up in one game last year, but seemed to lose the confidence of the coach and was bypassed in preference to Hooley. No doubt Adnam can play, but can he play at the NBL level (Offense & Defense)? For me I don't think he has had enough opportunities.

It is extremely tough to come off the bench and have an impact. Coaches just want role players to 'tread water' whilst the starter gets a rest.

Weeks is not a SEABL graduate. He's a Waratah graduate who made it into the NBL & was then offered a SEABL gig.

TWright - must get a start if they expand to Tassie - the guy recently represented Australia and has shown he can come up big in clutch situations. I'd have him as a utility one or two on the bench for any team. Not sure his opportunity with Kings nearly 8 years ago and 1 1/2 minutes of game time was enough for him to show his stuff. Get that man a contract!

I would take Weeks over Wright.
