A guard with NBA and Euroleague appearance?

I thought Liam was talking on NBL Overtime about a big.

Also - its worth noting I saw on some US article that Matt Walsh is pursuing a Chinese prospect that would not count as an import. Will see what that is tomorrow.

I read the academy bit from an article called " a day in the life of Matt Walsh". Not sure if this is the one being referred to by Pyro

If it was an Australian team using a DP spot for a foreigner id be against it.

So the Australian NBL has the possibility of having a team from New Zealand sending 5 players on court that contains 4 American imports and a Chinese DP?

More of the NBL favouring international headlines over local talent.

3 year deal seems a bit wild. I have no idea what the ceiling is for this guy, but surely there is a 17 year old NZ prospect that's worth a 3 year chance rather than a Chinese national. This seems to be in the Bo Liu/Amritpal Singh mould of signings - ie. not really for basketball reasons.

A A Ron, your point also applies with Australian NBL teams with three imports, a Next Stars player, an Oceania/Asian player (playing as a local) and any other number of naturalised Americans (playing as locals) that could make up the starting five or bench.

Some Euro leagues have a three import rule but that only two could be on court at any time.

"3 year deal seems a bit wild. I have no idea what the ceiling is for this guy, but surely there is a 17 year old NZ prospect that's worth a 3 year chance rather than a Chinese national. "

So you have no idea what type of player he could be but you think it's wild because he's Chinese? What if he's really good? I assume to be part of the NBA global academy be must be a pretty good talent.

3 year deal kind of makes sense to me if you believe he's a good talent. Given his age, he's unlikely to contribute straight away, by getting him for three years you get to capture some of the upside.

To me, the main question is whether he's any good and we should probably look a bit deeper than just seeing his country of birth to decide if that's the case.

It's nothing to do with him being Chinese, and everything to do with him being non-NZ. Marketing BS aside, the Next Stars programme is basically intended to increase the league profile and put bums on seats by luring over young prospects. Reading about this guy, looking at some of the numbers he's put up... It's just strange, especially for 3 years. He figures to contribute very little, so why not bring along a guy who might end up being with your club for 10 years and maybe even representing your country one day instead of a fringe international prospect.

Do Chinese players count as imports in the NBL? Maybe this guy ends up playing for the Breakers for multiple years?
