Creek is still at his best, hardly recycled, he'd be a walk up start for most NBL teams.
They signed Chima Moneke, that's pretty much the definition of giving youth a go.
Wesley is getting on, but is still s great competitor. Any team would love to have him coming off the bench for quality minutes.
Madgen, I'll grant you, is looking old, but he's coming from a successful European Career so should have plenty left to offer.
Gibson. Well IMHO he has been spectacularly overrated for much of his career, but has still been a very good player. It's hardly his fault that Lemanis found a new Toy-Boy in Spuddee, and does his recruiting with a Chocolate Wheel. He'll bring a lot of experience, both on court and in the locker room.
Keep in mind that with a new team, plus the usually departures, there's not going to be too many decent players without a gig, so Gibbo is an ok pickup.
There's still plenty of spots on their roster, plus DP spots, to hopefully start developing the next generation of talents.
What will be interesting is when they start to name imports, and we get to see how well they have structured the squad. If they're intending that Gibbo, Madgen, and Wesley all Start, then yeah they'll need Zimmer frames. But throw in a trio of gun imports, plus say Brandt, and it starts to look incredibly competitive.
I personally think that as a new team, they made a mistake in signing an unproven assistant, but who knows, perhaps Mitchell will be brilliant.
