Joey ... then what?
I'm not a Sixers fan but I have to admit that Joey does a good job in developing talent:
Sobey, Creek, DJ, Hodgson, ...
But, for these players to take the next step up, let’s say playing for Australia in the World Cup, is Joey the guy to get them there or do they need to move?
Looking at Sobey, for example. He’s been very good for a few seasons now, but should he move in order to become a regular Boomer? He doesn’t need to go to the NBA to become a Boomer, but what’s his best option? Another NBL team and coach? A tough coach in Europe? Somewhere below G-League in the US or Canada?
Same goes for Goulding, McCarron, Gliddon, and a few others - what do they need to do to become the best they can be? Perhaps they need to play for Joey for a couple of seasons?
