Any thoughts on his replacement at Perth D2.0?

Paul Henare is the coach, so hopefully this is a great opportunity for Vague.

Writing was definitely on the wall for him in Perth. Whilst showing glimpses, in two seasons on the senior roster, he hadn't cemented a spot. He was likely to be dropped, even before the shift to a 10 player rota.

Not sure how the season will shape in Japan? They may be playing behind closed doors? Although they are generally pretty good following hygiene directives, so they might be ok.

I imagine the coin is decent, compared to an end of bench player in the NBL. Hopefully the league is of a standard that will allow him plenty of minutes, and the opportunity to thrive.

Given the periodic talk about Asian-Market players, it will be interesting to see how he goes, as a measure of the relative strength of the League.

So he will have a more minutes and a more central role in a lower level league?

It's hard to say regarding replacement. He was an end of bench guy who played anywhere from 3 to 5.
Had the team stayed otherwise completely static, you could make a case for simply dropping him from the 10 man squad. So in effect no direct replacement.
But with 4 spaces still to fill, its pretty obvious that at least two of those will be big forwards or centres.
Assuming Reath, etc, remain contracted in Europe, I think we're looking at an import PF to replace Kay, so that could be anybody. Then maybe a local centre, but nothing really clear on that.

Who would be a better NS for Perth Blake Jones or David Okwera.

Blanchfield and Reath would be good fits for Perth - Blanchfield has played for Gleeson in Townsville before

Norton/Martin
Cotton/Wani
Blanchfield/Steindl
Import/Wagstaff
Reath/Majok

Remarkable NBL career to date.. championship every 20 games in the league. 4x champ.
Always teased with potential and probably hasn't developed to the expectations of the cats but still incredible to be a 4 time champ.

Nah take Patterson out and put LeBron in.
If you're going to live in fantasy land go all out.
The two anons above are more realistic.

So when he was on court with Kay & a centre, what role do you think he was playing? Point Guard?

If you're going to make pointless childish posts, at least get your mummy to fact check them first

Even a topic as neutral and bereft of anything negative as Rhys Vague still ends up in abusive posts.

The Vanilla Gorilla fell out of favour with Trev about 3/4's the way through the season and never got back in.

Trev's reputation in development remains intact.

And before the perf fans jump on he didn’t develop nick kay, even nick Kay acknowledges that was Matt Neilsen

Lovebroker isn't really abusive, and he makes a valid point. The anonymous sniping largely directed at three posters has got to stop.

Wow
So you acknowledge it was Nielsen's job to work with the forwards, but blame Trev for what you see as Vague's lack of improvement?

Vague has improved. If you look at his off-seaon work he went from SBL to SEABL to NZBL. That's why this will be a good move for him.
And who knows, maybe a good season or two in Japan and he could return to the NBL.

That makes as much sense as writing "citation needed" at the end of your own posts.
