With his achievements, so far, is he likely to come home or try Europe?

Reckon Bris need a starting PG. McDowell-White is from Brisbane and with his recent successes in the US, would solve that issue.

I honestly think that Sobey is a great player but a very ordinary starting PG. Cadee, much the same. And nearly every other team is now very strong in the PG spot.

When you think of the Next Stars program, here it is in reverse. An Aussie kid going to the NBA to help him get a gig back home.

MDW success, not certain where at senior level, div 2 Germany, first year, injured second year. A summer league isn't success. To much hype on some of Australian young players with not a lot of performance.

Could also be signed as an injury replacement player for Perth with Swaka out for 3 months giving him time to score a Euro gig January onwards.

Back to Euroball or perhaps g-league to try and get a 10 day and prove himself

Kind of agree, I know this kid has potential, but potential has a shelf life. What exactly have we seen from him?

Poor bugger, has to be rough on him. Agree with Anon above: hop to a g-league team and try and grab a 10-day here and there.

couldnt agree more, way too much hype which also then puts too much pressure on young players, let them be , if they can make it they will, if not leave them alone

Why not come back to the NBL for this season. Given all the scout attention on Hampton and Ball, there might not be a better opportunity to get further cut through with NBA teams. He's clearly on some radars already.

As much as I would love to see him at Adelaide, I agree with the Brisbane suggestion

Brisbane or cairns ASAP. He needs to come home and prove himself.

Perfect time to come to the NBL. Would be stupid if he grinds out in some crap 2nd div euro league, when there will be lots of nba scouts watching.

He might have been as talented as Dante but they have very different heads on their shoulders.

We comparing Dante and WMW u19 compaign?

There's a reason one was a draft pick and the other wasn't.

18, 3.5, 4 vs 7, 3, 4.

" He's not even NBL starter standard! "

The nbl is a 3rd, 4th tier league in the world at best. Can see Will White easily averages 15/5/5 in this mediocre league.
Remember Bogut only averages 3 Points per game in his last nba season and became nbl Mvp !

Will is also an extremely quick and athletic guard with great defense. He has more than enough tools in his disposal to dominate other guards in this league.

He didn't do much dominating playing for the Kings a couple of years ago. He played in Germany's second-tier league last season he'd be an average player in the NBL.

Great idea, get him to Brisbane with the million other guards. No thanks.

Good fit for Cairns. I love the Snakes but their bench is league-worst. He'd be much better than Kenny too.

He's reaching playing in Europe. He really needs to come back to Australia and play in the NBL. Where he will develop better. Hopefully next season we see him back down under.

It's not really a reach if he plays at a lower level than the NBL in Europe. The style of the NBL would probably suit him better though. That said, I think Rockets still have his NBA-G rights so if they've given him some reasonable feedback about their interest you'd suspect he'd stay over there.
