All i can see is he was suspended for code of conduct, that could mean a number of things. And to say he has mental imbalances is pretty harsh, 1 in 5 have mental health issues, give the kid a break.
But seems to be exciting prospect, 44 inch vertical and some poster dunks. If his suspension was due to some immaturity, hopefully some of Melbourne's veterans can steer him right. Good pickup IMO.

The guy couldn't go back to Washington, he did something bad, even worse than last years Washington player who was suspended.

He's honestly not that bad a player, but a bit of a stretch for NS. I think the NBL would have seen his relations to JAYZ and thought $$$$ opportunities.

He's on te fringe of the 2nd rd draft.

Getting him straightened out and building his body could see him make the nba

I can already hear Dwayne Russell really milking the Jay-Z connection on the commentary.

Why'd the kid get suspended from college? Seems like a risky move for Melbourne imo

Can't see him get more than 20mins a game.

In hoops tradition we will all hate on him until he does something.

Pretty ordinary decision by Melb United to sign this guy.

Prior to leaving the team, former UW men's basketball player Nahziah Carter sexually assaulted two people, university investigations found this year.

Why haven't these resulted in criminal indictments?

Right now they are disciplinary actions with the university.

Because maybe like a lot of rape cases the victims don't want to go through a trial and all the unwanted attention that brings, hence why most rapes go unreported.

Right now they are disciplinary actions with the university.


Well that's alright then welcome to the NBL!

Given he has been suspended by his university, you would conclude that he's done something wrong. Whether it is something criminal or not though, is another matter.

So they reported it to the University making it public record, and won't report it to police?

Yes. Do you know the process's a rape victim has to go through when taking it to the police and the justice department?

Okay, first off people are conflating sexual assault with rape. They're not necessarily the same thing. This guy could have done anything from grab ass upwards.

And that's if he even did it. He was reported to the university, not to the police. He was put through the kangaroo court that is the university system and they've come to their own conclusion without the rigours or burden of proof needed for any criminal investigation or trial.

The way I see it, the kid has been punished. If he hypothetically did something as bad as rape I'd find it a bit suspect that neither suspect chose to take that to the police, and both went through university. You'd tend to think two accusers, or more, would be emboldened by eachother's testimony.

And if it's something far lesser than that, then the kid has lost his scholarship. At what point do you decide that the murkiness of this means you can't punish someone twice for something that may not have even happened once?

^^^exactly.
Unless there is evidence of serious miss conduct, the kid deserves another chance.

Grabbing someone's arse is indecent assault. Not sexual assault. Generally sexual assault involves unwanted sexual penetration.

Looks like he was finalising a deal (like what was reported), and then the deal was pulled after his sexual assault investigation became public. Olgun clearly wasn't wrong here. The deal was on, and then cut today

Not surprised if United cut the deal today. The season is only 1 month away. Teams are making quick decisions.

Between the original definition of an NS and the concessions the Sydney Kings got in Lazada, doesn't this guy qualify?

I would've thought so, he would be draft eligible next year?

Louzada and Jessup seem to be the two exemptions to the original rule.
