Hire's NBL minutes at 12.5 per game which would be worrysome for Rockingham.

Jervis' minutes at 12.8 per game which is fantastic for East Perth.

Not much coming out about new signings outside of Willo, Lakeside, Rocko and the wolves. Hawks and Perth quiet so far. Can they win without some change up considering how well the other Wolves and Rocko have done with their changes

You would think Jervis wouldn't be playing SBL since his wife is still living in Brisbane and he’s a FIFO basketballer currently.

Perry Lakes have been quiet? They have resigned every single player back from their championship season and added Tevin Jackson, along with two import spots now currently up their sleeves.

In case you didn't notice, but they won it last year without Holmen and Thomas.They now add one of them back and Tevin Jackson who is a young, hungry and athletic player with NBL development experience. They then have two import spots to just tweak in, when and if needed.

Parsons is big on making sure he has all the right pieces. I highly doubt he will look to build or buy a super team even with two import spots available so any new signings should be solid additions.

Signing contracts is a ridiculous process in the SBL, no one has technically signed other than those so called superstars which teams want to remove from Pleb status to make them feel good when they move clubs.

All players will get contracts near the new year or closer to the date. Most teams have verbals and the guys are showing up to practices and are involved. Brian would be stupid to move unless monetary value is of importance. He is now an Aussie and wont be paid as an American I assume.

He should stay as a Hawk and go for a back to back and one more ring with the club that has helped him greatly.

Looking at Perth's MSBL roster from last season, players they can claim as their own;

B. Smith (32yo, 29 min's/game in 29 games)
J. Wagner (31yo, 28 min's/game in 28 games)
M. Vigor (28yo, 22 min's/game in 17 games)

J. Collard (19yo, 1 min/game in 13 games)
Bosnakis (18yo, 5 min's/game in 2 games)
Herbert (18yo, 2 min's/game in 18 games)

That's a huge gap between the old (David Harris') guard and the new. For several years there was much bragging about junior player development but nothing to actually show for it?

Davis is a cheap import which has allowed them to get Ross, who would likely be the most expensive non-import in the league in 2019.

Will be interesting to see which way they go with the other import spot. Do they go a scoring point guard ala Tre Nichols, or a swingman which allows their plethora of local up-an-coming PG's to run the show.

2.1 A player who is a non-Australian or Oceania citizen will be deemed a restricted player in the SBL competition.

I believe both of those boxes ticked. Ross restricted.

Ross will be 'unrestricted'.

Article 2.1 has to be read the right away. What it should say is....

"A player who is a non-Australian or non-Oceania citizen will be deemed a restricted player in the SBL competition."

The word "non" should be in front of "Oceania".

In regards to national representation, I think you will find that does not apply to Oceania national teams.

What it should read and what it does read are two completely different things. The Oceania clause was put in for the 2019 season. Oceania players are now restricted including New Zealand players.

And it doesn't say anything about Oceania players being exempt.

Oceania players are not restricted and a simple phone call to the SBL office will confirm this.

Just to name a few recent ones. All were at one time heavily sought after and sacrificed their games to win the big dance.
