Why didn't the 36ers bring Shorter back?

Probably asking a dumb question here.
But any reason why Shorter isnt being talked about as a return for the Sixers?

Cos he wasn't exactly good...unless his Mum was in the crowd.

At least you admitted it was a dumb question.
If Adelaide want to go a step further they need someone a lot better than Shorter.
As it stands Wiley and Moore/Drmic are already potentially a step backwards from Childress and Creek.

Joey didn't seem to want him back.

I thought he was useful enough.

Useful yes, but the 36ers needed more last season and they definitely need more this season!

Because he cost them the GF?

Shorter was not terrible, he was solid at many things without being spectacular.

You could do better than him but also worse.

Things come at a cost, if he could come back and we can afford to improve at other aspects like shooting I wouldn't be upset.

I thought he was pretty good for us most of the year, but unfortunately pretty good doesn't cut it. When it really mattered in game 5 of the grand final, he just wasn't able to make anything happen. Whoever we get this season has to be a guy who can take a game over or the Sixers will again fall short of a title.

His muscles are too puney to be re-signed.

I thought he was handy enough, spent to much on trash talk instead concentrating on the job at hand which hurt his game.

Defensively he was a perfect fit, but very erratic offensively. Depends what his asking price was.

I think he was solid. But I hope Joey acknowledges theyll be worse off without him if theyre starting Sobey at point.

Not enough budget for him. Price went up and isn't affordable.

LOL his price went up? Delusional if so.

I don't think the Sixers had much interest in bringing him back regardless, within a week of the GF finishing there was already talk he wouldn't be offered a contract for next season.

Would have been very dissapointed if we returned him as was frustrating even before that GF gesture . Would like to see our pG with a 3 point shot.
