international playing in the NBL1

Hey.

My name is Rithvik Thammareddy. I am a 18 year old basketball player from Hyderabad, India.

I just wanted to know if international students, on a student visa studying in Australia could try-out for NBL1 and other state league teams whilst pursuing a degree.

What would be the process? Would i be considered an import? What would be the best route to go for?

Any advice would help.

Here are my highlights.

Admire your intention but you won't be able to play NBL1 mate.

Why not? Nbl1 has imports doesn't it?
If he’s good enough teams would at least look at him.
Rithvik Good on you mate maybe try contacting bball clubs directly

U can try out but u would b considered an import for nbl/state league and by what i can see u are just not at the import level.

Best try to try out for youth league if u r in Victoria as try outs are on now or try to play for the school ur attending.

Also just for future advice dont add free throws to ur video/mixtape no coach wants to see that, they want to see athleticism/handles/vison.

Good luck for the future

Actually with India being part of FIBA Oceania/Asia he would not be classified as an import, just like all of the New Zealanders playing here aren't considered imports. Last season at least a couple of Indians played in NBL1 and BigV.

What city are you in, that would help narrow down teams.

Had a quick look at your videos... unfortunately you wouldn't be close to the standard of making a roster in the NBL1, even as a non-import. It’s good that you are asking but the standard of competition in India is a long way behind the leagues here

It feels as if half of India are coming here to study AND think they can ball at a high level.

Agree with th others but if you are sticking around for a full degree, try out for the university team in year 1 and work from there. If you develop your game therr can get some attention that way.

I feel like your highlights soundtrack was not quite offensive enough.

You're no higher than an average U23 div 2 standard(SA standard), NBL1 is a LONG, and I mean LONG shot my guy.

...and Smith Milner looks better than Harry Froling, so he not only has a chance, but will probably play meaningful minutes for Adelaide the way the Sixers roster is set up.

Smith Milner is easily the worst player in the NBL. Harry Froling is a lot better than him.

Eban, that hurts big time coming from you. I really looked up to you this season in the 3bl. I'm going to prove you wrong... You'll see :)
