Expect to see no imports in the NBL next year or we'll get NBL1 type guys only.

Opt out does not mean signed elsewhere. Many of the options outside will be back...hooefully

Highest paid import in the NBL.. next to the highest paid player in the NBL.. on a team full of high paid high profile players. Still didn't win.

^Or make any money. Their crowds were too low for the money they spent.

Sydney had the third highest salary behind Melbourne and Perth, Adelaide are the team that certainly underachieved.

Saying this repeatedly doesn't make it true.

Denying it continually makes you feel better but maybe you should except the truth.

I find it hard to believe Sydney had third highest payroll.

Other than two players of which one was a marquee the rest took pay cuts or were on fair money. Look at Melbourne top players all on big money, Perth as well, Newley and Lisch took big cuts, age and family commitments kept them in Sydney for a lot less money, Tate was a budget import that came out of the Belgium league.

Buy quoting 'Marquee', you are discounting Bogut's pay for luxury tax purposes.

We are talking about raw dollar value amounts, and we're not even including Bogut's 10% proprietary.

What you forgot to mention were:
- The Kings brought in Cooks mid season, he was not cheap.
- The Kings bought out Taylor's contract and brought him in as the 3rd import that Smith denied he ever had.

Perth had a $12 million dollar player for the back end of the season, it is what it is, you follow the rules, Plumlee 12million were not part of the cap and should not be.

And Sydney's fourth import was paid for by the league. Maybe not all of their roster counted against the cap, but it certainly wasn't the third highest paid roster in the league.

It's true. Ware opted out but since Bogut will not be returning, Ware is going to sign a new contract worth $500k for 2 years.

I heard they offered him the harbour bridge but my information might not be as good as Wilbur's. Lol.

Ware wiki page said he's confirmed to return to kings for this season. Kings looking younger but with still experienced players to lead.

After his abysmal finals failure last season can't we do better?

Casper is a proven performer, the coaching had much to do with his poor shooting form as he was to knackered chasing Cotton around the court. Yes Cotton shot superbly as well but poor old Casper was get chased, harassed by the best defensive player the the league has seen in Martin. Lisch, Bruce even Moller should have been tried on slowing Cotton down and not all left to Casper.

His poor shooting was the coaches fault? OK then.

Casper's poor shooting in GF's is always someone else's fault.

2018 GF vs Adelaide - 17.4ppg @ 41.4% (24% 3p)

2019 GF vs Perth - 15.3ppg @ 30% (22.2% 3p)

2020 GF vs Perth - 8.0ppg @ 20.5% (4.3% 3p)

Casper Ware career NBL Grand Final stats:

12 games - 14.3ppg @ 32.2% (17.8% 3p)
