Don't laugh too hard at the Hire suggestion. I've actually liked what he has done in the absence of Perth's starters. Very mature, experienced, and level-headed. Plus never gives up, just keeps grinding away. I think he could have had a much better career if not perpetually played out of position. He's a PF, or at best an old school SF, and Gleeson keeps playing him as an SG.
But I think stocking the bench will be fine. Pick up a few cats offs, couple of ex DPs, TPs, and a couple of young turks from College.
The critical issue is building their Aussie Core.
That's where Brisbane failed initially.
I hope they have the deep pockets to lure a couple of quality Aussies out of Europe. Not old farts who verging on retirement, nor guys plagues by injuries, but guys who could still command serious coin in Europe, and are happy to move home for the chance to headline a new Franchise on similar money.
(No point me sprouting names, as I have no idea who might want to come home, and it will depend on what they're looking for.)
