Mitch Creek? Brooklyn sign 2 two-way players.

With Mitch missing out in Brooklyn could we see him back in the NBL? Would look nice in United colours ;)

Both players signed are expected to be waived, with Brooklyn keeping their G League rights. Reading the article, half seems to be a favour to the players.

Don't know if this affects Creek much if he intended on plugging away in reserve grade anyway.

Fwiw his name has been raised in Brisbane circles if by circumstance he was to return.

Surely coming back to the NBL where the season end in March, then going to play Gleague is a better option.. More money and a better league.

I don't think we will seem him back in the NBL this season according to the 36ers they still retain Creek's NBL rights this season and Creek would need their permission to sign with another NBL team.

Surely Benno doesn't understand what call-ups and 10 days are? You also don’t know the money he is on, so....

"The maximum regular salary in the G League was around $26,000" Sounds like you know sweet f all anonymous.

It's $7000 per month US plus living exspences with the chance of call ups to the nba, not great but useful enough to hang around if you back yourself to get into the big dance. Will also open up doors for euro league clubs.

Casey Prather is currently playing Euroleague and earned more than that last season in the NBL. Your point?

The point is it's more than 26g and it could lead to nba if you want to tough it out. If Creek thinks he’s good enough he can hang in there and hopefully get nba call up. As I said it also can lead to euro league, and Prather team has the highest paid player in the league, 4 million US per season.

I thought creek had the type of deal where you get paid more for playing g league

He toughed it out in the NBL and gained an NBA opportunity. The gleague is full of chuckers its horrible basketball. People play for themselves not for the team. He can always go to the gleague in March when the NBL season finishes...

Amazes me that people don't understand this. Bit like looking at someone spending $x0k on uni for a few years and saying "But they could make $x0k more working in retail!"

Anyway, I suspect we'll see him at the new Melbourne team.

Adelaide's off-season actions have been so insanely shortsighted.

I also think that although he may be giving up salary this year, he is raising his NBL price.

So when he does come back to the NBL, I think teams will pay him big money (more than what he was on with Adelaide) - and so he"ll recoup back a lot, if not all, of any money lost this year.

And that's even assuming he's stuck on a G-League roster for the full year.

Whilst some say what he is doing is a risky move; I can't see any risk. IMO, heaps to gain, and worse case scenario, nothing to lose (except for some money this year which he will make back anyway so nil loss)

Whether he cracks the NBA or not this season staying one season in the G league isn't going to hurt his future prospects.

He is possibly already a number one target for new Melb club.
