Next Stars targets for next season

Matt Logue has an article up on the Telegraph but it's behind a pay wall.

Could someone please tell me what it says about next stars targets for next season?

Hopefully none. Draft n stash much better, like louzada.

I'm not sure why you would say this.

Do you think this seasons crowd figures would be as high without Lamelo Ball?

There is no one with ball following in the coming seasons.

"can terry Armstrong stay for a 2nd year as a next star? I cant see him being drafted"

I don't see why not, it would make sense, he is still very raw.
And if he turned that 2nd year into a draft pick, it would be an even greater endorsement for the program.

It will be interesting to see how the draft goes for Ball and Hampton.
As I understand it, they make a HUGE production out of it.
Can you imagine if NBL teams took out say 2 of the top 10 picks.

It might be a bit late, but it is certainly going to boost the profile of the program

I think the default Next stars contract is two years so unless they mutually agree to part ways we may see Terry back

Ball and Hampton have slipped to 3 and 8 in the latest pre draft, so playing certainly helped them as being injured they have fallen. My problem with it is a player like Armstrong is on 100g paid for by the league and can't get on the court because he’s so average at present. He’s earning more than half his team that are playing.

From a local standpoint I would like to see Giddey, King or Wigness but Jalen Green jumps out as a high draft pick and would be a massive boost to the team that could get him.

By all accounts, Giddey is as good as gone to college already.

Wigness & Kind are realistic NBL options, while Jalen Green would be a massive coup.

You're right, it seems to be, so I think Hawks get a payout when Ball is signed to an NBA team, and a player not signed could presumably come back as a stash.
However I did read somewhere that Armstrong was only one year..

That's why it's paid by the league, and besides, I can assure you that most players get more than many people estimate.
It would only be the real end of the bench guys who would be getting less.

Absolutely right Dazz only 9-11 men on squads would be on less than 100K.

While scouting at the 2019 SSANBA tournament in Sydney, Australia. I came across and watched a young prospect, Ajok Malou from Melbourne. After speaking with him he told me that he'd only played local rep and was in talks with following opportunities overseas to the US. This shocked me because the young fella had some tremendous upside at just being 16 years old and had never been involved with any state programs. The kid was about six foot six with a huge wingspan and a natural feel for scoring, inside and out and a knack for defense. The point is, although these Australian state programs and sports institutes produce talented players such as the upcoming next stars for the 2021 NBL season, serious prospects are going unnoticed because a lot of attention is being focused into only recruiting out of the state programs. To combat this issue, high level Australian coaches should try scouting local players themselves by attending tournaments such as the SSANBA and other, before prospects flock overseas and slip through teams fingers.
