Why not an NBL1 Central import replacement?

With Kendle coming in, why would the 36ers not have considered CJ Turnage, Greg Mays or Alex Starling?

They have plenty of mediocre guards already in Teys, Dillon and Mudronja. Kendle just adds to that pile.

These imports would provide something different. Turnage is a walking bucket and could score in the NBL off the bench. Starling is undersized but would be an elite wing defender and Mays would give them a different look to DJ and Humphries and is better in every facet than Pinder.

I would have looked in their own back yard before going to the well again with Kendle. You never know when you might unearth the next Redhage.

Kendle is brutally over rated and now coming off the back of a serious injury.

i tend to agree with the original poster. May have paid to look in your own backyard to see what you have.

Yup, but the people making the decisions have no idea what is local cos they're not South Australian. There was a local import who did alright a few years back, what was his name......ummm.......oh yeah, Mark Davis.

Isn't JVG familiar with Kendle from a previous Sydney cameo?

Kendle probably willing to do for cheap also until replacement arrives.

Good guy to have around the team, def won't upset anyone that's for sure.

It's going to take realistically 3-4 weeks to get a replacement import this season, depending on if they started the search before "releasing" Sloan. I would guess that Kendle is just a known quantity giving a bit of depth while a replacement is brought in. PG is not exactly looking like their position of need either, I wouldn't be surprised if they looked at depth at the 3/4 spot.

There's a huge leap between NBL1 and NBL. Teys averaged how many points the last few years?
Also the players mentioned that are here aren't what the sixers need. Contradicting myself from the above statement, but if Oldham was here I think he might have been a chance to fill in.

Should have brought in a few of those that are SA and trained them so you could pick who you thought performed the best. Kendle is not very young and has had a lot injuries of late. They might have an nba club already wanting Giddey so it might be a good decision to play Giddey maximum to get good nba buy out.

Any of those mentions in OP would do it for the minimum. You know what Kendle will give and it won't change the 36ers chances at all. Give those minutes to Mudronja. Try Turnage or Mays they are young enough and you just never know whose game transfers.

Is it silly to think he could play Pinders role better than Pinder? It might only be 10-15 but at least it would be an upgrade in my opinion

What is with south Australian's obsession with using south Australians? OP isn’t the first to mention using south Australians. How about finding the best available players for the job. This isn’t domestic juniors.

It's about engaging and connecting with your market. South Australians love to see locals do well. That was the great shame in not securing Ingles and Newley and rightly draws criticism as monumental screw ups to fail to secure those signatures.

Victorians have a similar affinity, particularly cricket wise.

Kendle is just a bonus. It's the something's better than nothing approach and just because he's signed it doesn't mean that all those things like giving more minutes to AM can't happen.

Kendle is supposedly a better player than the state league imports and has experience already. It's pretty simple stuff.

We are talking basketball. Just putting in an SA person because they are in or from SA makes zero sense in professional sport if they are not up to it. Issac White will be available next season so you can chase him. But Mudronja is not NBL calibre. And professional coaches do not give a toss about your narrow minded SA focused mentality. They are only worried about wins and losses.

Kendle's not up to as an NBL import we've all seen that with his three stints at Bullets/Kings/Bullets but no way you sign an SA state league import over him. Those guys are playing in SA for a reason and it's not because they're good otherwise they would be playing in better leagues in the eastern states.

Despite his flaws at NBL level Kendle has dominated in the NZ NBL, SEABL & QBL over the years which puts him light years ahead of any SA state league import. The fact this thread was even deemed necessary by someone to create is cringe worthy.

I know everyone thinks SEABL is amazing and the SA comp is no where near it but Mays averaged more in SEABL than in Adelaide.

He would be fine in the NBL

You don't want an import to be fine in NBL. My lord SA basketball people are stupid

Mt Gambier rolled in with Kentral Barkley from memory, straight from the G league into Adelaides PL.
Those aforementioned imports were just as good as him.
They maybe a little better than being given credit for here by the armchair critics.

Of course you don't want an import to be just fine but are we really expect Kendle will be more than fine?

I just think he’s redundant at his position and they have other guys of similar standard that could play those minutes. I think Pinder has been poor & they could upgrade him with any of the SA imports for different reasons.

6ers owner has his ball and chain and he will dictate who comes in...there is plenty of talent in SA. I agree Starling, Mays or Turnage would be great to see hit the court.

If you drug tested quite a few of these young ones, they wouldn't pass. 6ers on a losing game over the last few season are out in the streets partying hard...real hard.

Henry should attend some NBL1/Reserves games and he might see what he has in the palm of his hand. Get them out training - what hurt could it do? But as if Henry is reading these posts for advise LOL

No one in NBL1 Reserves should ever be looked at for NBL. What an absurd comment.

Turnage would avg 25 in NBL1 South easily. There is no one in 2nd tier comps in Aus that can guard him. He should get a chance. I think he is only 25 or 26 too.

Turnage should play in NBL 1 South and earn some better money over the pittance paid by Norwood

Norwood pay more than almost any NBL1 South club.
