Southern Huskies 2019 season

NZNBL fixure is out. See Huskies games before.

It got me thinking with it being Australia Day tomorrow and all - will the Huskies become every Aussies team in the NZNBL, thereby uniting all of Hoops during the NBL off-season?

I'm thinking this is perfect off-season filler. Great that there is streaming.

does that mean Aussie players aren't imports and can play for new Zealand teams

Australian players are not imports unless they average more 7 minutes a game, ie Froling playing for Adelaide will be an import in nznbl. Very good signing may I add, they look like they have a very solid team, certainly a big chance of winning the nznbl.

Taking a long time to announce their final team I reckon.

They have their main players at this point

Froling
Billups
Muo
Nichols
Bragg

A couple of guys from last years chargers.

Waiting to see where Moller ends up minutes wise in NBL (likely over the limit) which may be impacting the next move, they may look at another NBL guy who is just under the 7.5 mins if Moller stays over.

That starting five will be to good for any nznbl team, Froling can compete in the nbl, two American import including last season starting guard, Muo proven player at that level and except for injuries at wrong time was on nbl team, plus Bragg who is certainly at this level and former nbl player. Stanwick is also a very good young player coming off the bench.
They should start favourites.

I'd say Moller won’t get near the minutes restriction so can’t see him being eligible.

Southland last year had Pledger, Te Rangi, Weeks and two decent imports. Nelson had Vukona, Delany, Heiur, Adnam and a quality import big. The Huskies starting five doesn't stand out from that.

It's not happening this season, have any of those players been announced yet other than Weeks, nbl clubs players got to be released and clubs looking after there contracted players.

"Australian players are not imports unless they average more 7 minutes a game,"
"Southland last year had Pledger, Te Rangi, Weeks and two decent imports. Nelson had Vukona, Delany, Heiur, Adnam and a quality import big."

I'm familiar with the SBL rules, and imagine most minor leagues have similar, if a player averges more than 25% game time in the NBL he's treated as restricted (subject to a few exceptions) and you can have him or an import, to a maximum of 2.

Last I heard, the NZNBL has no such rule. If you are eligible to play for NZ, then you're not restricted.
So the question has got to be what concessions if any have they given the Huskies to enable them to sign Australians on a similar basis.

The problem for the NZNBL is obvious. They treat Australians as imports because they don't want us (with our much larger population) filling up their league. In offering any concession to the Huskies, the problem is magnified. Last thing they want to see is an NBL-Boomers team playing in their league.

The 7.5 minute rule given to the Huskies is an interesting compromise.
All teams can now have 3 imports or restricted players, so whilst their starting 5 will probably not match the best, they should be able to field some great depth.
Froling was possibly an early announcement? Before his minutes went up?

You would think that NBL teams would be eager to get their young developing players into the NZNBL via the Huskies.

Hobart clearly thought they were allowed four imports in there first press conference as they said they were on the way to signing Craig Moller, but with Froling and two American imports signed seems like Moller is either playing for Hobart huskies or else where, I've try to follow but seen nothing. This is tough for Hobart as nznbl can load up with lots players trying to get to Wellington under Henare in a World Cup year. Hobart will still be very formidable and will make finals and could take it out.

7.5 minutes is a joke. Anyone playing less than that is a spud. The rules used to be just over a quarter of a game. IE. approx 12mins. A deliberate act I reckon to keep the likes of Moller out of that side.

Why do people insist on sprouting shit, when the actual facts are literally right in front of them?

"7.5 minutes is a joke. Anyone playing less than that is a spud."

What do you suggest? This still gives them exclusive access to around 25~30 players. Players who are in fat a decent standard relative to the league.

"The rules used to be just over a quarter of a game. IE. approx 12mins"

Nope, they never had any such rule.

"Hobart clearly thought they were allowed four imports in there first press conference as they said they were on the way to signing Craig Moller, but with Froling and two American imports signed"

Perhaps at the time they thought Froling and/or Moller would scrape under the limit??

Yea I dare say they thought they could have both Froling and Moller and 2 Americans, and given the choice between the Aussies chose Froling who is the better of him and Moller, so fair call, and if Mollers minutes drop enough (unlikely) they will seek to add him.

Else they could probably sign Moller or another NBL guy as an import to the Hobart Huskies and have him fill in for the Southern Huskies if Froling misses games with NBA try out camps etc, which is probably likely.

Sorry. Frikkin autocorrect on a mobile.

Huskies now have their brand displayed on the big screen at the Hobart Airport luggage carousel!!! Pretty sure that would be a first anywhere in Oz? I also hear there might be another 5 locations for more large signage to come.
