Signing teys again?

I cant believe joey would make such a stupid decision yet again, you think hed learn after signing doyle to sit on the bench next to teys for 6 straight seasons but nope. apparently theres some under the table dealings and he gets his "seat" on the bench back.

welcome back to the sixers team where you will get to average 3.5 points a game in 12 minutes again and waste all of our time and money when people could easily fill your shoes and more if you would have the guts to stand aside.

what is there to be a fan of? his stats are abysmal and he doesnt get any court time.... why bother signing someone if they dont bring anything but "a positive attitude" to the changeroom.

He's actually so good against young premier league players though! Surely, given the chance he could average 20+ a game and possibly carry us to a championship

If he was 10 years younger and putting up the same numbers in premier league people would be crying out for him to be in. Who else we putting in, Johns? He knows the system, low maintenance and a leader, doesn't care about his minutes or points at this stage or looking for his next big contract. Would be perfect to mentor guys like McVeigh. And the coach obviously likes him so why wouldn't he be signed?

if he was 10 years younger hed be 18 or 19 and he was pretty bad then, nothing has changed.

johns has been tried and tested at high levels and been left in the weeds.

if im not mistaken he was a development player for a while and never eventuated into anything.

there are plenty of players in the abl who have played professionally or have consistently put up good numbers but for some reason they are being overlooked.

It's plainly obvious that there are players out performing Teys in the abl right now all you need to do is open your eyes moron.

Just from a scoring perspective only 1 Australian who isn't already a 36er is averaging more points than Teys and that’s Daly

There are a lot of players playing out of position because of lack of size. There are players in 3 4 and 5 spots that are better in every aspect of the game than Teys.

Here's the thing though about his age. If he was 10 years younger then we would be thinking "wow this guy has so much potential!" But we don’t say those same things about Teys because he’s had his chance in NBL and hasn’t become a dynamic player.

Any time he has come up against a decent defender even in premier league he doesn’t shine. In NBL ho doesn’t shine. That’s why people have issues with him. He’s the old bull that won’t change, you know exactly where his ceiling is. He doesn’t equate to wins for the sixers. So get someone else that has some potential to do so. Johns might be an option, Brine, Harris, Daly. In fact Harris and Brine are just below him in PL scoring. Yet they both shoot better and Brine out-rebounds him by 250%. I’m sure there’s other solid players here and interstate too. Anytime he’s played against a formidable defender he has underperformed. This year and last..

Just would like to see a different approach

I think you will find Harris is being groomed for a roster spot.

Premier League is just a woeful level, poorly coached in most cases, with very average imports to figure out how guys translate their role to the next level. Most of the time teams are just trying to buy premierships by getting washed up imports that can score at the low level that is premier league. Plenty out there looking to closout their careers and get some easy $$$.

You are looking at scoring but that is not Teys' main role. You need to work out those guys would fit into the system, their role, IQ etc. to workout how they would go. No good just sorting out scoring stats top to bottom and saying the leading Aussie scorer should get a gig.

Brine gets more rebounds because he plays as a big and nobody to rebound with him until Moultrie arrived. What position would he play in NBL, certainly not a 3. Harris will be similar to Ng, just a shooter. Give him a few years to mature physically and he will be a good contributor.
Teys is what he is, not expecting anything from him and paying him accordingly. Other young guys to suit up as DP players. Doyle finally gets some minutes and everyone is saying how shit he is, cant win.

Anon 206. Agreed about Harris. Brine is getting more rebounds because he's taller, longer and more athletic. Brine could play 3 at NBL level. He played a 3 on a championship team in the 2nd division in Spain. Certainly no slouch

Harris doesn't have the size or length to play NBL. Will just be another in a long line of 36er DP's who will never play NBL, but are good training fodder.

Ah yes, the good ole "there's plenty of better players in the {Insert Random Bush League Here}" argument.

People forget that the big killer in the NBL is lack of continuity and stability. It takes players and coaches playing together over a number of seasons to build a core, and you need to strike a balance between rolling in the new talent, and keeping your culture alive.
Adelaide have lost key players in recent years, and will already have new faces in addition to those with only a season under their belt.

So yes, you could probably replace Teys' output with a young kid, but unless that kid is a LOT better then you also need to factor in his experience and maturity.

Keeping it real. Brendon Teys is a pretty good PL player but a very average NBL player who's relationship with joey has seen him carve out a long career. "He plays defence and does a lot of important stuff off the court" WTF everyone at the NBL should play defence, as for the off court stuff that's credited to those who cant really contribute on court. Watched him play v mount gambier probably the 5th best guard on court Horrible offensive night ad four turnovers. Similar v Norwood and just revisit last years GF to note how well he does against decent quality PL players. Tough competitor at NBL level. Average handle, poor shot selection and shooter. But obviously very good in the locker room. Why another 2 years??????

Forget Teys. If I was a Sixer fan, I'd be more concerned about the club thinking it fine to sign White for two seasons.

He comes on the court and does F# all.

At the same time, their point guard goes from 1 foul to 3 fouls because Teys draws 1 charge and then 1 hack because their PG is still pissed off about the charge.

Anyone needs a spell, Teys can come on, get the job done and keep the team doing the right thing. I think Teys with white against most teams 2nd back court are going to cause trouble with ball handling. Is they there to pick on the young kids? I hope so.

Occasionally when the whole team can't hit a hula hoop, Teys has put away a couple of baskets. He is a backdoor cutting shit stirrer. But hey 3.5 pts a game is some people focus, so be it.

I understand people being underwhelmed and I agree with FM's post.

I think that when you have a player that has been around players that make the NBA then imparting your wisdom and being an on court coach works for Teys right now.

Thinking about him being selected for Australia when he was still playing for Townsville, he's had a really decent career and is if anything a tenacious bugger.

Teys may not be the most athletic or flashy guy. I'm sure he's aware of that. But it's funny how everyone has been up in arms about losing Majok Deng and bagging the re-signing of Teys, when Majok averaged only 4.1ppg more than Teys last season. Teys made a difference on the defensive end, drawing offensive fouls and pressuring at every chance he gets and while defense may not be his strength, Majok gave up far too many points at times.

Harris does have a famous father. Played hard for the Tangas some time back.
Regular scorer from memory. Most noted for getting out of a trap then immediately engaging in the next play.
RAW.
