Wigness is only 16 so will likely only be college 3 to 5 years from now.

One, possibly two, might make NBA rosters. I think most will end up in the NBL.


Add to that that in 3-5 years time we may only have 2 or 3 Aussies in the NBA, it's looking a bit lean for a while.

Gone: Dellavedova
Probably gone: Exum, Baynes, Maker, Broekhoff, Bolden, Mills
Definitely in: Simmons, Ingles

Harry Froling - NBL (If the 3 ball is consistant he might be a long shot for an NBA role in a few years)
Isaac Humphries - Looking forward to seeing him in the NBL next year
Sam Froling - NBL
Daniel Grida -NBL
Tom Wilson - NBL
Tamuri Wigness - NBL
Jacob Epperson - NBL/State League
Alex Ducas - Vic Premier/State league
Luke Travers - Nbl/;State League
Kody Stattmann Nbl/State league
Jack White - NBL - Long shot as a 3/D NBA shooter like Dekker/Parsons

If some of the guys have EU passports they could go to EU instead of NBL if the cash is better

I think Froling is looking like he could be the main big on a competitive NBL team. I don't mean that as a negative thing. Basically a decent career like Daniel Johnson. Solid NBL output, cusp of Boomers teams, etc.

Bit pessimistic there I think hoopie...

Mills just turned 30. Exum is coming into his own. Bolden is just beginning to get opportunity. Maker is a bit of a wild card and has had his moments. Broehkoff might just need opportunity to show his wares.

Josh Green a good chance of NBA in 3-5 years.

By 2023 the number of Aussies in NBA could be less than now

Simmons and Green in
Exum likely in
Bolden and Maker ??
Baynes,Ingles,Mills,Dellavedova and Broekhoff will all be NBL/Euro or retired by then.

If the Current NBA guys projecting forward in 3 years:

Simmons - All-Star
Exum - Hopefully still in league signing a new deal (needs to develop thou!)
Bolden - Fringe NBA hopefully develops
Maker - Fringe NBA (Worry teams not keen on mutli year deals on guys his age)
Baynes - Fringe NBA or end of new contract maybe NBL
Ingles - If he keeps shooting getting a new NBA deal
Mills - Hopefully siging new NBA deal
Dellavedova - NBL/EU
Broekhoff - Established NBA like Ingles getting nice deal or back to EU

Not on the contract Delly is on when he has a better player in TJ McConell on a team friendly deal!

Thon Maker not taking steps forward that he should.
To me he is not even a boomers lock.

Almost all the guys on that list are too young that you would rule out anything. Shooting is such a commodity in the NBA these days that if pretty much any of those guys were to demonstrate the ability to hit the NBA 3 at 40%+, they'd have a shot.

I think Harry Froling, Humphries, Wilson and Epperson are the least likely NBA prospects. Just lack the physical tools to play their NBA positions.

Is Travers still pursuing basketball?

Grida, White, Stattman and Ducas will all swing on shooting ability.

Wigness a better passer than Patty at the same age but Patty improved so much after getting to the Spurs. Much more efficient shooting, really cut down the turnovers. Wigness will have to do the same but may not find himself in as good a situation.

Sam Froling has been extremely impressive every single time I've seen him. Great hands, great feet, better shooting stroke than his brother. With some extra strength I could see him as an NBA prospect.

If Grida's career is dependent on shooting ability, he should get cracking on that Woolies application.
