Sounding similar to recruiting an aged Ebi Ere a few seasons ago if true.

If it is Deleon you 6ers can kiss your title hopes goodbye. He's the NBL version of Monta Ellis, looks good at times but nothing about his game is condusive to winning.

We weren't going to be contenders anyway with the loss of Creek but this would be a bit of a kick in the guts with shades of the disappointing Ebi Ere season all over again.

I posted it, It was removed as the Sixers requested it be removed as the contract has not been signed it has been agreed upon and Cairns are after Trice as well and are prepared to throw more money at him.

Wasn't much of a Deleon fan at the Hawks. Maybe money is seriously tight.

To be honest, i do kind of, maybe, suspect some sort of a collaborative beat up by people in the know here for whatever reason. Maybe there is a reason why this needs to be kept on the hush? I don't know.

If it is the case though that money is this tight, it does strike me as odd that they need to revisit a past import from a different time who is well into his thirties. You don't need to do that if you can only go budget. There's so many ways to pluck a diamond in the rough besides that. But if it is the case, so be it & welcome AD.

Also, am i right in saying that Adelaide attended the Summer League as per usual with the intention of scouting imports? It doesn't strike me as a seriously cash strapped kind of behaviour given what the likely cost of the trip is for the club. Wiley wouldn't be cheap either.

On that too, I've been surprised at the low level of hype for Wiley. It didn't seem that long ago that an NBL team signing an import who had played 5 NBA games the previous season, was enough to strike high levels of excitement in team supporters & intimidation into opposition. Import standards have obviously gone up since that time. But with NBA time & top European league experience under his belt, coupled with the rumour that he was in Melbourne's sights, it does strike me as a pretty significant get and worthy of more optimism.

I could be wrong about this suspicion obviously, but something seems a little funny about the import pg scenario...

i agree with you that Wiley is an excellent signing that seems to have gone under the radar.

I'll believe Sydney are this unbeatable force when i see it. I don't think they've learnt anything on why balance is more iimportant that loading up. It is an impressive roster obviously. I think Melbourne learnt that last year with the way they constructed their bench.

It's interesting how until last year all the teams everyone declared unbeatable were the one's anchored the bottom of the table while teams like Adelaide and Wollongong have done so well again most expectations.Perth are always Perth. Same for NZ. But it took United a few years to get it right.

We seem to say this every year with Sydney. If Gaze can make it work, look out for sure! But I'm not convinced by them. Sounds crazy i know.

It's not crazy. Both Gaze and JvG are not good at their roles. Plus they have signed old players who will be susceptible to injury. Get the popcorn out!

Master Chief,

last year everyone said Melb were loaded and they ended up winning the title.

So im not sure what your point is?

Reply #698722 | Report this post


Master Chief

Red, yes they got it right last year and were talented at the same time, which i mentioned.

My point was that simply recruiting the best player you can to look the best doesn't always automatically equate to success predicted in pre season hype.

Does that help you at all?

Fairly typical, when trolls want to try to start a rumour, and all they can think of is the handful of players that have previously played in the league.

If Joey goes for a PG (which I do think is likely) it could be anyone of dozens, if not hundreds, of guys.

I don't think money is especially tight, as somebody said they've spent more since the new ownership, but neither are they Sydney, Melbourne, or even Perth. Already got a good squad, and will likely be looking for a solid addition rather than a superstar.

After reading the article from the 36ers, 3 spots left and no mention of Teys.
Maybe import pg, Wiley and Kendall Stephens?

Deleon is the wrong type of budget pg if you have a loaded front court. There are a ton of undersized pg imports playing in second tier European competitions who aren't earning the big bucks because they are just solid players running their team, think a better version of Jarrod Kenney.

Highly unlikely motum will be the 3rd player. Not enough minutes in the front court.
I'm still expecting a trice/Adams type of pg. if it was Deleon boti would have said something smart ass in his latest article

Wiley is a done deal so that only leaves 2 spots, 1 of which is Teys. This leaves 1 spot to fill.

I highly doubt Motum will be returning to the 36ers this season.

I'm guessing they bled money last year and the purse strings have tightened. Why else would you do anything but offer Creek a solid contract when you could've secured arguably the top Australian player to have another serious crack at the championship? Then play this awkward we're-due-a-transfer-fee card.

With Motum we could give Sydney a real challenge.

I would imagine with Teys they are possibly still negotiating terms.
As Captain, he's possibly asking for more than minimum and a 2~3 year deal, whereas the sixers are possibly waiting to see the final shape of the squad and how much money is left.

It could also be that they have agreed, and are keeping the announcement up their sleeve for an optimum time.

Has he by any chance been nominated for the Young South Australian of the Year award? LOL
