Doubt the Wildcats are "cashed up", they also run the Lynx and that costs money as well.
Those who write off their players based on yesterday's performance seem to forget that they won't have to play Utah in the NBL :)
Norton did a reasonable job against NBA guards, he will be ok against NBL guards.
Kay was outplayed, once again, he will play against NBL 4's, he has an indie/out game, he will be more than good.
Brandt is not a star, apart from Cotton nobody is, but he does his job, the Wildcats is built on everyone doing their job, he fits right in.
Their strength will be in the bigs, Brandt, Jervis, Kay, not too many NBL clubs have that front line.
Steindl improved, even against Utah he had a decent game, he got signed to come off the bench and provide offense, he will do that and i reckon consistently.
Vague, so far is a nice surprise: he has confidence, he's got a nice shot also a good size for his position, another piece of the puzzle that fits perfectly this team.
White is a question mark, but no questions about his abilities, the question is on how he will fit it.
Both Hire and Wagstaff are known commodities, both will do exactly what's required of them, rebounding, defense, scoring it's just a bonus.
How anyone can say that Perth will miss the playoffs is beyond me
