News Corp reports that he was informed on Friday. Professional to play hard today knowing he was gone.

He has a longer term contract in DR too, so made sense for both parties. He's a great guy, wish him the best.

Ex-NBL import as a replacement. Will be exactly what Adelaide needs.

Interesting. I think they need a taller versatile wing guy who can switch defensively, rebound, handle and run. Losing Creek and Childress in that department and not really bringing in a similar style of player was optimistic.

Looks like Childress recently signed in Japan.

How about Tokoto?

Joey's post game press conference ended very quickly after McNeails name came up. Maybe he wasn’t happy about it getting to press?

Prather is injured and hasn't played for a month, his Russian team have got the highest paid import in Europe and Prather wouldn’t be on Adelaide money unless they robbed the bank.

Boti hinted strongly at McNeail, so id say thats a fair guess

Personally I hope its someone better, but seems to be another budget choice.

What, has Prather all of a sudden been fired from Khimki?

Their season ends in April 2019.

I think Kenyon McNeail looks like the frontrunner.

I love a conspiracy, so is there anything to suggest that, considering Adris is Joey's boy, that AAdris was just a placeholder until such time as the player they actually want becomes available?

And on Deleon, he was actually good defensively, from what I saw. Very disruptive, timely steals. One steal in Cairns changed the complexion of the whole game. I thought he was solid, and certainly better value for money than Wiley (if you say Deleon signed for something like $80k and Wiley $250k).

My opinion is Deleon was in fact just a placeholder import until the season got to a point where the 36ers could afford who they want. Or who they wanted became available.

Its actually Steph Curry.
That strain yesterday was a smoke screen.
He is in the process of termminating his $40 mill a year deal with the Warriors to join the 36ers on $200k a year.
His main reason is that even though he has won multiple NBA rings, olympics, etc...he says his biggest achievement would be beating Perth in Perth.

Conger will help with scoring but just adds another poor defender to the 6ers team.

They haven't got enough from Deng this season.

They could get an athletic wing, leaving a back court of Sobey, Moore, Teys and Doyle.

If Sobey plays at an elite level that could work. Risky, could go either way.

Not going for an import, Seb Vozzo apparently available and will make debut next game after one of the most dominating performances in YL. Will Wise III to fill remaining import spot.

Every armchair expert (myself included) knew this was a terrible import signing to begin and have just been vindicated, how the club got this signing so wrong is another embarrassing note to add to this current administrations checklist

Tried to cheap out realised they were well short lets hope some of that extra 20% in membership fees goes to the next signing! If it does they'll slightly redeem themselves

"He's a great guy" Is a meaningless piece of shit. He may be a "great guy" but his professional job is to be a "great player" not a chump on the court sorry. I am sure he is a great guy but not doing it on the court is bye bye.

Lineup is probably still 7th best in league, on paper. On the court, probably the same.

Just how shit was DeLeon?
Should the Cats grab him as a short-term depth player? We're down to 9 players at this point, including Dech.

Or would Adelaide demand a $100k clearance fee?

Yes he is too bad for a 3-6 team to tolerate any longer with but he would be perfect for the ladder leaders.
Please sign him ASAP.

Conger would make sense. While not great defensively by any means, he is the style of player that fits Joey's style and will probably thrive in it. Now they'll be able to switch a lot more than they could with DeLeon on the floor.

Conger started out the year very well in France but dropped away in recent games and Le Mans announced he had been released yesterday.

If Adelaide sign Conger then good luck to Jack McVeigh seeing any court time this year... well I got it wrong thinking that he'd be Rookie of the Year.

Adelaide would be the worst team in the league if Cairns didn't shoot themselves in the foot vs United and are still clearly bottom

Totally agree re McVeigh. His lack of opportunity completely mystifies me, but then I'm not at training, so maybe there is a reason other than coach 'blindness'.

Be great to get a public [and real] explanation of why he keeps getting overlooked, but from the bleachers it looks like the coaches just can't work out how/where to use him.

On Saturday I was hoping they'd give him an opportunity and run him somewhere on the basis that he is quick and tall and looks to have multiple moves and so might have worked out a way to score and suddenly 'clicked' to give them eight or 10 points.

Most of the others - Frohling excepted - seemed to be playing like headless chooks and have no idea.

Reply #715993 | Report this post


I don't know for sure, but I believe the biggest reason McVeigh isn't getting minutes is that he's been a defensive liability. He mentioned it himself in an interview that offensively he was comfortable but he and the coaches needed more from him defensively. The few times i've seen him on the court he's been a bit of a traffic cone as his opposite number flashes past him for a lay-up.
