Good signing but how long until he is back from injury?

Grida was expected to miss the whole season but with the season now being pushed back a couple of months he'll probably be able to return later in the season.

Saw January suggested as a possibility.

I trust this puts to bed any suggestion that teams have broken the 'amnesty'.

We left the Hawks Grida.

It's telling us the hawks can only get who no one else wants.

I think with what's left this is the best they can do.

Hawks-Goorjan

(I)/6’5 Mcdowell-White/6’1 E.Naar
6’5 D.Newbill/6’5 D.Grida
6’7 D.Adel/6’8 D.Deng
6’9 C.Bairstow/(NS)
6’11 A.Ogilvy/6’11 S.Froling
DP

Maybe if Ogilvys gone they can put Bairstow at c and get Motum at pf.

Unless LK opens the purse strings, they can't afford Adel or Motum. Smith-Milner is more there budget.

I'm hoping it's more like

IMPORT / Naar
Adel / Grida
IMPORT / Deng
Bairstow / Coenraad
AJ / Froling <--- Next Star

After losing our soul with Glover, I hope we can keep Timmy. 10th, 11th man, who cares, we need some link to locality, even though the NBL seems hell bent on breaking that.

No we dont. we need a team that wins games.

Enough with the "Glover is the soul" garbage. Yep he's a local kid with some potential if he stays healthy. Yep he got a great offer and went to another club. All the carry on like this is the first time in league history thats ever happened. Get over it.

Glover, our Soul? C'mon man!

He has played one season for the Hawks, a season which Hawks came last!

There's been plenty of other local juniors who grew up supporting the club and ended up playing more than one season for them. Several of them also went looking for green pastures.

I really hope Angus has a great season and gets back on NBA scouts radars and fulfils his potential.

638 word out of the inner circle of Hawks camp is another very good scoring PG with the name White is joining the roster and not McDowell-White. If what I heard is true we will be in for a great addition.

Lol. 'Scoring' and ‘Kevin White’ don’t belong in the same sentence.

Not just 20 consecutive playoff appearances but all with a minimum of semi finals in a time when the league had more teams is a mighty effort.
Like most teams will see how import recruiting goes before judging just look at Cairns last year.

Goorj has never built anything. He's either inherited decent teams and been fortunate enough to be on the receiving end of two mergers, or he has spent clubs in financial distress.

The balance of there team will need to be A plus, Froling, Naar, Deng, Grida doesn't install confidence even with Popovic coaching.

6 championships and 7 runner ups in 22 seasons

In 15 of his 22 seasons, finished top 2 at end of regular season - 10 minor premierships and 5 2nd place finished

21 seasons in a row with a regular season winning percentage of 58% or mpre (after his first season was 11-13)

20 seasons in a row finishing top 4 in the regular season.

He coached 5 different teams, and 4 of them for 4 seasons or more- and achieved massive success everywhere

It's simply an unbelievable record- has there been any other Australian coach of any Australian sport with a comparable record?

Goorjian is American, so I mean any professional coach in Australia

445-174 record, 72%

As a comparison:

Craig Bellamy 313-2-141, 69%

Wayne Bennett 524-14-308, 62%

Alistair Clarkson 219-2-137, 61%

Bellamy the only one who's close, and he's benefited from coaching Cameron Smith his entire career, plus Cooper Cronk and Billy Slater until the last couple of years
