Perth Import

Heard from a couple people within the wildcats organisation that Cotton is likely to receive citizenship late January. Once this goes through the wildcats have a deal to sign Marko Todorovic once the Chinese CBA finishes, first week of Feb.

I think decent is probably the right word.

His leap looks terrible. Its a bit scary when your most athletic player on the team is cotton.

Hmmm, intriguing if true.

There's been a few rumours floating around over the past few months. Plumlee returning was a strong one, possibly even alluded to by Trev. But I wonder if that changed when Jook went down??

A more recent one was that Trev was looking to start Mooney at the 5 and bring in an athletic stretch-4...

I've seen nothing of this guy, and just a couple of pre-season games from Mooney, but based on that limited info they seem similar types of players??

Well it keeps things interesting!

Assuming any of this is true. That's a handful of games without this or any import until February.

Do Perth look for a short term replacement local or just play DPs in the interim.?

Perth owners daughter doesn't want to spend and is trying to sell the team so they won’t be spending money when they will loose money already this season.

Remember when we signed Johnson, then sacked him and hired that G-League guy, then he left and we brought JJ back. Really felt like we were hard up...

Even that year when we clamoured for a 3rd import, the decision not to seemed like a budget constraint.

Cats obviously spend heavily, traditionally one of the big spenders. Then at times seem constrained..., until they don't.

Obviously locking in Cotton cost them a bundle, especially in this screwed up season. Hard to say about the others, but I highly doubt any of Mooney, Blanch, or White, are getting paid anywhere near the players they replaced.

Keep in mind that when Cofton naturalises, he becomes their (#1) Marquee, so his tax impact is slashed.
They COULD be keeping some coin up their sleeve for a stud import.
But that strategy also relies on said import becoming available at the right time. As did Cotton and Plumlee.
So could be this guy, or some previously untouted guy who gets cut from Europe, Asia, or even the NBA.

Are teams still allowed up to 4 Marquees? Ie 2 imports plus 2 marquees?
If so, that still remains a possibility, in an Aussie gets cut elsewhere.

Start of the season is going to be interesting. I'm eager to see what frontcourt combos other coaches are using, and how well we can hold our own.

Two imports and two marquees makes two marquees, not four.
