NBL1 2020

A heap of signing announcements coming through over the last couple of weeks.

Some big names changing teams in both the men's and women's comps.

Geelong and Frankston look to be the early pace setters in the men's.

Will be interested to see how Bijan Johnson goes at this level. Should get plenty of opportunity to shine in Albury/Wodonga.

Bijan's game is going to get exposed at NBL1 level. Got away with a lot of low IQ stuff in PL because he was more athletic than most guards. Won’t get away with it in NBL1, they’ll just bench him.

Many players are going to be exposed at NBL1 level, especially those who are stepping into it from lower levels where they were found out under pressure.

Frankston looking like title favourites, bringing back their main core, with the exception of Majok.

Are they planning on re-signing Bozeman?

Looks like Sandy have some big United signings and who said the Tigers are struggling, a few big $$ signings.
Heard Bozzeman will bob up at a regional NBL1 club for a healthier salary.

Hobart Chargers are hoping to sign at least one, possibly both, of Jalen Billups and Marcel Jones from the now defunct Southern Huskies.

Billups should dominate NBL1.

Bilups is woeful, he could not dominate in WA, throwing down cherry picking dunks is not dominating. He plays no defence either. Jones is a stats padder and has played for so many clubs tells you he get second chances to often.

Will NBL players who log more than a certain amount of minutes (7.5 I believe) still be classified as imports.

If that is the case I think the NBL1 should abolish this rule. The more NBL talent the better, alongside quality imports.

Billups played for Wanneroo Wolves in the WA SBL grand final, and won MVP that year.

If he comes into NBL1 with the correct attitude (plays defense and team ball) then he will dominate

Any Australian player who averages more than 20 minutes per game in the NBL, WNBL or the higher level leagues in Europe is classed as a B restricted player in NBL1.

Imports are A restricted.

Teams can have three restricted players but no more than two A's.

I believe that it is 20 mins, too, but I also believe that that rule is not in 'til 2021 season. 2020 will be played with 2 restricted players per team, in Qld anyway.

It's 50% of game time. For NBL and WNBL players that’s 20 minutes. Not sure about QBL but that’s definitely the rule in NBL1 as it was for SEABL.

And someone said low IQ, thats laughable mate. That kid is one of the best play makers right now in Australia and a defensive anchor. Dont buy in to what you hear about a man. You heard it here first

Not comparing him to sims because i dont think its needed. Sims is probably still a hot head and well out of his prime. BJ is 22 and has handled everything people like you throw at him. All the LABELS. He's matured. That was the only thing he was missing. He's found it, I see him at games and few practices all the time and that kid is READY. His teammates say the same thing.

Seabl was definitely 12min. I know our team was chasing a player with about those minutes. Massive difference between playing 20 minutes + as an Aussie / import or under 12 mins and not being an Aussie.

Frankston to sign David Chavlovic.

A 5'9 graduate from West Texas A&M, he averaged 20,4,5 in his senior year.

He most recently played in top tier Croatia where he averaged 10 points.

I think he'll be one of the elite guards in NBL1.
