From today's update from Roy Ward in the Age.

Solid low maintenance guys Pledger seemed like a whipping boy from what I heard in the stands last season, Barlow still produces that might start to fade (but every year I say that and it doesn't) You need a guy like him around.

No fluff signings that every roster needs to have

Depends on the money. If you could fit those guys into the bench-cap (however much that may be next season)then they are great signings. Pledge is great coming off the bench.
Barlowe had a great season although faded a little as expected.

Really depends on hw they plan to se them, and whether they plan to re-sign Boone, and/or how they see Jois and/or Smith-Milner coming on next season.

Pledge was a great backup for Boone, but they can't play together, which left them (sans Wesley) very thin at the 4.

If their plan is to sign an athletic 4/5 as their import, then this would be a good front-court.

Can't see Barlow leaving Melbourne city area as he has a very young family and with Wesley at SEM that card fell United way. They still looking a bit old and with Smith-Milner and Moller looking for more court time they will be relying on there imports big time.
