Cam Gliddon Parts Ways with Bullets

The Brisbane Bullets and Cameron Gliddon have mutually agreed to part ways.

Gliddon will be released from the final year of his contract, meaning he is free to explore other opportunities.

After joining the Bullets in 2018, Gliddon has played 56 games during his time in Brisbane, with the period also seeing him selected in the Australian national team for the Commonwealth Games in 2018 and FIBA World Cup in 2019.

After spending time off-court during COVID-19, Gliddon said he and his family have decided to make the move.

"I want to personally thank my team-mates, colleagues and coaches, all of whom have supported me greatly during my time in Brisbane," Gliddon said.

“Most importantly, I want to thank the Bullets fans, members and partners for supporting the club and helping basketball grow even stronger in Queensland.

“Ultimately, the time is right to move on and I feel it is time for a fresh start.”

Bullets Head Coach Andrej Lemanis thanked Gliddon for his efforts in the Bullets singlet.

“Our paths have been intertwined over the past few years and we have had many great experiences together with the National Team and with the Bullets.

"It's been great to see Cameron’s growth during that time both on and off the court.

"It’s always disappointing to have relationships come to an end, however, it’s clear the time is right for Cameron and his family to find the next stage in their journey and I wish them every success in that pursuit.The Brisbane Bullets and Cameron Gliddon have mutually agreed to part ways.

Reflects pretty poorly on Lemanis last year he picked Gliddon for the Boomers World Cup team 12 months later the Bullets wipe their hands with him.

I know it's a little conpiracy theorish but, does this add fuel to the rumours that players came to Brisbane to play under the national coach/promised selection for boomers training squad?

Some fringe Australian talent flocked to Brisbane under AJ, we later found out they are likely to be spending less then Perth, Melbourne, Sydney and Adelaide (no partcular order there guys) and now we have one of these players leaving after AJ loses his role as Boomers coach.

Equally likely that Gliddon came to Brisbane for more money or to get away from Fearne only to find out he was sharing minutes with Sobey the following season and is just looking for more playing elsewhere.

But who doesn't love a good conspiracy

WA boy out of the same town as Mark Worthington. Can see him finishing out his career with the Cats then possibly helping Worthington out (Head Coach) playing for the Slammers in the SBL.

Sydney's coach has been with the Boomers for the last 7 years. He knows all those guys. They've flown over the world together. My bet Sydney.

Cairns an option. Sydney and Illawarra too.
Opportunities limited in Brisbane with Sobey, Cadee and possibly an import in the backcourt.

Would be a good fit at SF for Perth if we decided to go with a big for our second import and Cotton is not naturalised. 3pt threat who can hustle and play D.

Don't really understand this by Brisbane. Seems as if they picked Drmic over Gliddon. Assuming Brisbane keep Patterson you’d want a shooter over a slasher.

Huge amount of interest in him out of Perth last time he hit free agency. He would seem a on paper a good option to fill the Terrico void, would be a great floor spacer alongside Bryce and as stated he is a Perth boy.....could happen.

That's exactly what I thought back home to Perth to replace White. Wouldn't have thought there would be much interest in him outside of his hometown team.

I seem to recall Gliddon didn't have a great year but still shot 43% from 3 which is impressive.

Would be a decent pick up for any team.

He may still be a decent starter but his stock has dropped a lot last year.

I think in part it comes down to this: He probably wasn't happy with the pay cut, and Brisbane weren't interested in negotiating a longer-term deal. So this way he gets to negotiate a fresh deal with another team.
And yes, without a Boomers singlet, attraction of playing for Andre is greatly diminished.

I'm sure he'll have plenty of offers, just maybe not for the role and money he wants. It's still not clear how the quality of the league is going to pan out for next season. If its stays consistent, then he's not going to be a starter for any of the top teams.

As for Perth, firstly when "home state" boys have never played for the Cats, there's often a reason, and a bit of history there. Also not sure what Gliddon would bring, that Steindl doesn't already provide?

Gliddion is a very good defender, far better than Stiendl. Gliddion is also a much better player than Drimic so I don't see the advantage there for Brisbane.

It would be a no brainer for Perth IMO, he is better than Steindl and means he can remain the 6th man off the bench. Gliddon can play the SF position replacing Terrico and can slide down to the SG position when Cotton plays some PG.

Also means we can use the remaining import spot on a big...

As mentioned though he will attract interest from all the team in the NBL one would think.

Glide on has not played for the Sixers, therefore is limited in opportunity to stay with the Brisbane past Sixers.

You're right, it would be a no-brainer, but fortunately Perth have brains.

Their biggest focus at the moment is re-signing Kay, and that may well determine who and what they use their 2nd import slot on.

Neither Steindl nor Gliddon is good enough to start for the Cats, but if they're short an import they may need to run with a local SF as a compromise. I just don't see Gliddon being a (big enough) upgrade to warrant bringing him in

I can understand the Perth talk although it leaves us a pretty short starting 5.

I think the Cairns mystery can be solved, if they can sign Gliddon then it makes it easier to work out that they bring back Oliver and they still look really competitive and he is a former club captain up there isn't he?

Hoping Trist is gone which means Wesley playsbas a 4 and they add another 5 behind pineau.


Or...

Has Reuben Te Rangi signed with the Bullets again / is he still contracted? Could have been a decision between the two, especially if they're trying to re-sign Patterson as well, no need for two back up 3's (even though Gliddon could play the 2?).
