Australian College players to play NBL next season?

I'm predicting:

Jack White
Mason Peatling
Tanner Krebs

Anyone else returning to Australia that could make a good NBL player?

Dejan Vasilijevic .
But like the others listed Europe is an option.

Not many this coming season, maybe 4.
I think you can expect 4-5 to be good enough for nbl roster spots or dp spots every year.

Trouble is, we have a lot of retirements over the next season or two and we should lose 10-20 aussies from nbl.
Nba guys coming home as well as euro guys willhe,p fill the void.
Also, do t forget that there a bunch of kiwis that could come back from overseas and a few good college seniors that could get nbl spots.

DJ is most likely headed to Europe - he has a dual passport and can play as a local.

Krebs, Peatling are both most likely NBL players.

I can also see Chier Maker, Myles Cherry, Deng Riak and Kyrin Galloway getting some looks from NBL teams - possibly as development players.

Jack White - Yes but has the Stiendl's about him not sure he'll make it, although 4 years as a contributor at Duke means he'll get a deal.
Mason Peatling - Might be like Jois playing in a weak conference makes him look good but isn't NBL standard.
Tanner Krebs - Will get signed for a bench role.

Chier Maker - Should get Looks but needs time in NBL1
Myles Cherry - think might surprise an get an NBL gig
Deng Riak - NBL1 here we come
Kyrin Galloway - NO

White will be a 4 in the nbl.

A few old players on the 36ers that could make way for a youth movement.

I don't think the Steindl comparison holds up for White. He has lost minutes this year but is a second year captain at Duke, a capable enough shooter, and a really good athlete. As a previous anon said, he should be able to play the 4 in the NBL and will rebound effectively there as well as creating some matchup problems. The fact that he's been a captain and so consistently been given opportunities in a Duke program that is perfectly content to keep rotations to 7 or 8 guys, makes me think he has a chance to evolve into a Nick Kay type - better on a better team, just fitting in and doing what he's good at. Cast as a Mitch Creek he would struggle.

Aussiebballer...amen. Nothing like crippling a team for a few years on the way out the door.
