Keanu Pinder

On the back of the NBL Indigenous round does anyone know how Keanu Pinder is going in Poland? His name is never mentioned alongside Landale and Brock Motum, granted he's playing in an inferior Euro league.

Does he have NBL aspirations? Could a team not called Melbourne Utd, Perth or Sydney afford him?

There's lots of guys like that in Europe who could play nbl, but the money and new experiences are overseas.

Pinder certainly a good enough athlete to play in the nbl....couldn't be any worse than half the dudes playing in the league but guessing the money is way better in Poland.

For players like Pinder, the NBL is always there as a "last" option.

Cats maybe turned him down, but talent to money ratio most likely an issue. Just because the cats say no doesn't mean he isn’t nbl talent.

just because his name is Pinder doesnt mean he's nbl talent!
his stats suggest otherwise and he doesnt produce much
2 pts 2 rbs at college
6 pts 6 rebs at poland

Yeah I was going to say his college career was a massive disappointment. Thanks for digging up the stats. I guess it didn't take long since there are so few of them.

Poland is one of the poorest league in Europe, and he'd earn more money playing nbl than in Poland. Some people got stop guessing and do some research. He’s not playing in Poland because he’s a star.

Got to remember that we have a two tier system in the NBL. You can pay your top 6 anything, but the bottom five are capped.
So yes, Pinder would be better than many of the bench scrubs, but he'd have to take a very low salary.

Plus gotta be honest, it must have been tough being Pinder's son. The idea of playing in the NBL is probably not as big a dream as it might be for others.
