Will Magnay waived by Pelicans

That's a shame. Hopefully another NBA team will pick him up

Is there a possibility an NBL club could pick him up?

Im sure a lot of NBL clubs will be making enquiries. Perth possibly at the top of the list.

Is he still linked to Brisbane in any contractual way?

He needs to try and stay in USA and hang around the league

Yeah if I were him I'd go the G-League route and hope for a call up, rather than come back here, quarantine, then play a handful of games.

Is Another Anon a Perth fan? I saw Peter Hooley suggest something similar too. IT'S NOT JUST PERTH FANS.

Isn't the g league over for this season, he can hang around but he’s probably better playing. Unless Brisbane got a pay out I don’t believe he can go elsewhere.

Wouldn't Brisbane be the logical choice especially with Law out.

Melbourne, Sydney, Illawara, brisbane, cairns, nz and Perth all need him.

So basically everyone except SEM and Adelaide.
Hope he comes back to NBL for rest of this season but doesn't give up on NBA in the future.

If United or Perth get him, they're automatically clear favourites

Brisbane get him and you'd expect to see them sneak into 4th and become somewhat of a smoky. Issue would be getting him here and suiting him up ASAP.

But I hope he gets another NBA gig, tbh.

Wouldn't Brisbane be the team that don't need him, given Hodgson, Froling and Harrison?

Not a Perth fan, it just seemed the logical choice given that's what absolutely everyone agrees that Perth needs.
But I also agree he should stay in the US if possible.

Perth isn't the logical choice far from it, it's on the other side of the country.

The logical choice is Brisbane because it's his hometown, the Bullets are the only NBL team he's ever played for and their starting PF just went down with a season ending injury.

It will be interesting to see if he decides to hang around over there for another shot or comes back to help the Bullets make a playoff run. I wouldn't be surprised if he was a bit homesick and asked the Pels to release him.

True that he'd push Harrison out of the rotation. More romance really, is always good seeing guys return to their original teams.

He should go to Melbourne United.

How do Illawarra need him? They've got three fives already.

Correct he was released from his Brisbane contract so isn't obliged to play for them.

Should probably stay under the NBA's noses really for now. The only way NBL will be of benefit is if he can come into a team where he can absolutely kill it. Coming here and being a role player on an already stacked team probably isn't going to help.

There is also a chance he get's re-signed by New Orleans - as they are moving things around for tax purposes in trying to secure a wing player - perhaps Golden state may also have a closer look given their injury issues at that position

Maybe one of the 3 nba clubs interested will pick him up.

Good chance he stays in the States and picks up a gig somewhere else. Plenty of garbage teams at the moment giving players a run to see who could stick.

On the tiny chance he was considering returning, bring him back to Brisbane. Best option against the 3 bigs they currently have.

Would make sense to try and latch onto another NBA team. Realisticly he won't be more than 13th man on any roster so he should go g league or back to NBL next season and continue his development.
Easy to forget he is just 22, has improved immensely in last few years.

SB Nation: While there's no avenue to playing time for Magnay currently, it makes some sense for New Orleans to bring him back when there might no longer be a tax penalty in signing Naji Marshall to a regular NBA contract.

I reckon they’ll bring him back for summer league at worst.

If he comes back to the NBL, which teams need him?

Adelaide have DJ and Humphries unless the recovery is way off.
Brisbane could slot him in as a PF, would fill the need to cover Law instantly.
Cairns - Let's not even bother.
Illawarra - already have AJ and Froling, but could fire Adel and bring Magnay in.
Melbourne - could fill the gap of White but Barlow goes back to the bench.
Perth - PF slot currently held by Jarred Bairstow so a good place for Magnay to slot in.
New Zealand - Already have Delany, Iverson and Loe.
SEM - Already have Creek, Moore, Wetzell but the latter 2 could go to the bench.
Sydney - Also needs someone to cover for Cooks or push Hunter back to the bench.

Magnay has knocked back interest from NBL teams and as he needs minor foot surgery anyway he will remain in the US and prepare for the Boomers Olympic training camp in Las Vegas.

I love how when Magnay announced he was intending to sign with the Wildcats all the haters were doing mental gymnastics on here with scenarios on how it possibly wasn't going to happen. It must really grate them. EVERY SINGLE TIME.
