It's not Lamelo Ball to the Hawks

On WIN news Matt Campell said there will be an import signing shortly.

It's either one of: A guy who has played NBA most of his life or B A guy who has had 2 10 day contracts for NBA clubs

Wow, so if the guy is in his late 20s he's been in the nba since he was 13, that's freaking impressive!!!
Maybe it's in the nba for most of his professional career.

Played in nba whole career could be one ten day contract provided the bloke was a plumber the rest of the time.

I'd be pretty confident the Hawks are going with 2 imports only & bringing back Ando as the veteran leader & captain.

So what NBA veteran guards are off contract & could be headed this way?

They only have two roster spot so available so they'd have to go with either two imports or one and Andersen - Flinny has stated his preference is to start with two imports and see how it shakes out.

Interesting possibility of leaving 1 (or even 2) import slots available.

Would Illawarra decide to bring out another import based on:
A. Their chances of finals, ie bring in a better quality option if they're in with a shot, to "get them over the line"; or
B. Their finances, ie bring in what they can afford?

Or even option C, look for a player type based on attendances, ie provide the crowds a reason to go to games?

I reckon Andersen will sign and if needed will retire and take assistant coaching job with the Hawks

I think it will be dependent on finals chances, obviously they don't have the cash to splurge on a great third import. Added to that, I think they'll spend big on their PG, and then possibly start Grida and go from there.

The four spot is where their season will be decided for mine - if they resign Andersen then I think they'll start him over Froling and hope he progresses quickly. Bairstow would have been a good fit next to Boone and AJ but I'd say he's out of their price range now.

That podcast reported "player sources" after initial reports the NBL was in talks with the Ball family had died down.

Not saying the podcast had it right, but they did make the claim when no one else was talking about it. I still think they are a bunch of "flogs" though.

LaMelo to the Hawks both makes sense from a team needs standpoint (which the NBL considers when assigning players to teams) and had been mentioned as a rumor here before those podcast guys got on to it. Nothing to see there from them.

The podcast guys then came out and said "player sources" have linked Lamelo to the Hawks.

I take that to be a different source to the aforementioned ones.

They are flogs, but credit where credit is due if it's true.

Surely LaMelo isn't coming if The Jump is confirming it, as is ESPN?

To the anonymous source who started it, h/t your way.
