Sixers roster

So we're goung with one import, according to whispers and pretty much confirmed by Boti. Is it a money thing(probably)? Or are they targeting some bigger name aussies? Letting Drmic and Froling wall suggests they believe they can upgrade. I reckon we are going to contend..for the spoon.
It’s so frustrating! Just rewatched Titletown doco, gees I didn’t know how good we had it. Even the 2002 team. We were spoiled. It’s sad to see how far we have sunk.

I don't expect anything out of Adelaide. One import basically solidifies that for me. To make up for that, they're going to need the absolute top-tier Aussies. Who they got, Brock Motum? Ryan Broekhoff? Deng Adel? Chris Goulding?

I doubt it.

Randle if he passes fitness tests a late addition.

Still a few spots to fill. You'd think if you cant hold onto Drmic or Froling then you don't have money to recruit a Euro name or worthwhile Aussie.

Desperately need another big and a decent 3 that can play 2/3/4

Got to feel for Connor Henry. Not only is this roster lacking talent, but it's unbalanced. Then also expected to play Giddey, who won't help you win now and most likely will leave within a year or two.

You couldn't push Drimic and Froling out the door without having a plan to bring in 1, 2 or even 3 better local players.
If going with one import you'd hope 2 or 3 upgraded locals.
I don't have a problem with one import as long as its in the childress/cotton/machado category.

Henry is going to emphasis defence, so when the balls not going in the hoop for us we still might have a chance to win unlike under Joey.

Remember Drimic and Froling were told to look elsewhere before the virus and Kelley was stating that he's trying to win a championship and rumours of high paid imports last year, so unless somethings changed lets just wait.

Using a marquee spot allows you to pay more for a local player, keeping their salary more in line with their pre-COVID worth, without costing yourself any more money. So the plan may be less about "only one import" than about "three marquee players".

ROFL at everyone so upset about Froling. Guy was fat, lazy, and contributed SFA. Drmic different, but similar result.
That's the problem for professional athletes. They can blame Joey and toxicity all they want, but at the end of the day they failed to perform and that has destroyed their value.
Unless he thinks he has some inside running, no new coach wants to take on players who are going to tank if he hurts their feelings.

Besides, you have to assume that Henry is looking to re-build.

Wait a minute, just having one import does not mean the team is going to field a trash squad.

Give the club some rope first, its a semi new management JVG's first full year, and new coaching.

I would tend to believe they have some decent Australian talent AT LEAST short listed, and no I don't expect our front line to be Landale, Motum and DJ.

The club had a decent year attendance wise and is looking to build on that (Covid allowing).

If you were a businessman, would you want to follow up a year of improving patronage with something that fans cannot stomach? They will at least try to put up a good team, let's see.

I do not want Randle back.

I would rather DJ Newbill, someone that sets the tone on D, has a decent shot and can create with his step back.

He is not an MVP but he can do what is required.

Second import has to be a Gun 3, on a level with a fit Prather, Patteron, Hopson.

Upfront we have DJ, Kyei, it's sad after that I concede.

Froling has been a cancer for years, spat the dummy at two good colleges, has a decent rookie season then spits dummy again when comes back out of shape and didn't put in the work to get his minutes back.
Conspiracy theory for me is they're keeping import spot open for Randle, he'd be cheap coming back from injury, he's happy he's getting paid to rehab.
I think because Drmic was one of Joeys guys that was reason to look elsewhere, keep sweeping out the place, really doubt KB is back as well as a couple of others.
Whatever "marquee" local they get will no doubt influence the import pick. Get an experienced guard not named Kevin to see how Giddey goes, then probably someone like a Patterson to play a couple spots depending on lineup.

If you can get a fresh import into the country, why not get two? You can still spend up on an Australian returning from Europe and get a budget bench import from the broader talent pool.

Randle returning late in the season is the only reason I can think of not to, and it assumes he is fit in time to qualify for post-season, will contribute, that they win enough games for it to matter, etc. Otherwise even if you are writing this season off, you'd still get an import with flair to bring in crowds.

Problem is you can bring in Kevin Durant but if they do let in fans then there'll be some form of distancing. So you might get your regular season ticket holders but they'll have to spread out unless they're a family group I assume. So for example a 10,000 seat venue may only be allowed to have 4,000 spectators. Better than none but if an outbreak happens again would even the most die hard fan want to bring their family to a basketball game, let alone a casual fan which signing a drawcard import is the purpose of.

After all this time I still can't understand the hate for Teys. Someone has to do the work and on recent 36ERS' teams Brendan has been that workhorse, often trying to cover up the deficiencies of several other players at once.

As for the 36ERS' short-term future: in my opinion they need to cut Randle loose now if they are to have any hope of even moderate success next season. He was often, if not always, a liability when he was fit. Assuming he does recover from his physical injury in time, and that is no certainty, I shudder to think of the negative impact on the team if an older, still mentally-recovering Randle was to be dropped back into an established rotation mid-season.

And there is always the chance that, with Randle 'in the wings' and slated for a mid-season re-entry to the 'stage', the team will be banking on him providing a boost which he will fail [and in this instance probably be physically and mentally unable] to provide.

Cut him so the new coach knows what he has to work with [doubt is a killer] and can concentrate on developing a stable, positive environment that will, quite possibly in a very short time, bring success, assuming the management sticks with management and lets the coach coach.

It was obvious Moore wasn't injured and had quit on the team/Joey as he stopped playing as soon as the deadline had passed to replace imports for a playoff run. It was a low act and not only will that have an effect on his future in the NBL but will likely have an effect on the rest of his career.

It doesn't matter how much you disagree with a coach or whatever but quitting on a team by refusing to play and also blocking them from adequately replacing you is not the behaviour of a professional. He made a bad choice that he now has to live with.

Yes, but with emphasis on the maybe, and unless there is already a relationship there, its a big risk for a new coach. You're taking on a player who is out of condition, and who has already demonstrated that if he's unhappy he will underperform.

It's tough, and probably unfair, but that is the lot of a professional player. If you hate the coach and the atmosphere, your only option is to play your arse off, then leave when your contract is up.

If Giddey is playing decent minutes we cannot have Randle, let Randle go and get Dj Newbill.

Not sure what style Henry wants to instill but the defence must improve, Randle must go because he must score big to make up for defensive deficiencies which means he must take lots of shots, hero shots.

DJ is on the decline so we are running out of time to give it a decent shake.

Teys is decent, people like to bag him out like the do Greg Hire, like Greg Teys has value to the team and does the dirty work that DJ, Moore, Griffin and Randle didn't do.

Conner Henry spoke of having 7 players locked in, and 4 vacancies. He then spoke about individuals.
From what he said, Teys is being re-signed, making the 7: DJ, McV, Dillon, Obi, Mudronja, Giddey, & Teys.
Froling and Drmic were conspicuously not mentioned.

That statement about sums it up, a NBL1 central finals team yes, but very very average nbl bench. Starters would be import pg and Giddey in backcourt, DJ and import big in frontcourt. Have really got to get a good overseas Aussie for other spot, Motum been here before but is he good fit with DJ as a perimeter big. This is assuming Giddey is up to it, still think this contractual guaranteed minutes is ridiculous, he's going to have big target on him going against mainly experienced professional men, if he sucks Adelaide is screwed. And who is the 6th man, McVeigh who's erratic as hell or good old Teys who doesn't really conjure comparisons to Ginobli providing spark off bench.

I don't want to sound too alarmist/dreaming but this team is so cheap (forget about the pay cuts) that it has me wondering if they can convince Joe Ingles to come play for the club if they can spell his name right.

Did Joe suggest somewhere that he wasn't going to stick around in America during these uncertain times and that's prior to the violence occurring over there... he would provide so much that this squad is lacking and help fast track Giddy and even attract other talent around him.

A squad of

Jennings/Dillon/Mujondra
Giddy/Teys (start Teys if Giddy is having troubles with early fouls)
Ingles/McVeigh
Davis II/Kyei
DJ/Vague or Smith Milner

Tohi Smith Milner looked about the most selfish player in the NBL last season at times and certainly caught the ire of United personnel, would Adelaide take a chance on a player that seems to have played better for Tall Blacks than in the NBL

Ingles made that statement early on and then walked it back later. His team had the early cases but then he was likely reassured by the NBA's prompt response. He's not done with the NBA yet. Would have more luck with Broekhoff if they threw a lot of money at him and he was wary of the situation in Europe. Not sure where he ended up after Dallas waived him?

Has it actually been confirmed that the upto 4 Marquees rule still applies? Or are we just assuming?
Since the measures were all about cutting costs, it seems a little strange to force teams to cut an import and sign a marquee instead.

I guess the Marquee rule does make such players doubly attractive now with the salary reductions, especially if its still only the same $150k(?) that counts towards the cap & tax. So you can sign somebody for $1M, pay them the ~$500%, and still only $150k counts towards the cap.
