hypothetical forced trade in NBL

Whats the best trade each NBL team could make with another NBL team to really improve their roster?? Rules are other team cant say no and your player has to play more than 10 minutes pg. You cant do like a development guy for Cotton.

Where would you start with Cairns? Need viable starters at most positions.

If you think of the 36ers at full strength (Giddey, Paul, Dech, DJ, Humphries), who goes to the bench? DJ's net rating is pretty awful, so maybe it's something like Dillon for Mooney, and DJ is a contentious benching? Or Dillon for Cotton and Paul is the bench impact?

I'd trade Levi Randolph for Lamar Patterson, that would make Breakers unstoppable

But seriously, imports trading should happen far more often ie if you don't think you'll have a player back for next season and you are out of playoff hunt then trade him for another import that probably isn't being brought back and maybe the import just fits.

I think Justin Simon would be the perfect exponent of this, if he isn't being brought back by the Hawks then why wouldn't you check out a high quality person, great defensively and seems so active on court that he puts the rest of his team mates to shame, I wouldn't want to lose him or his unique skill set from our league... however that free throw of his is fucking ugly.

On one of the Will Magnay threads, I suggested a "what-if" trade from Bris, who apparently still own his NBL contract for this year/season, to Perth (already seems a done deal), for Steindl and Blanchfield and some money.

Well, you know that anonymous guy? He told me I was silly!

You are silly, trades aren't permitted in the NBL under the current EBA.
Players can request to leave and sign elsewhere (Patterson), but it generally costs them either through a "break contract" clause or buy-out (Magnay)

I hope Goorj hasn't caused another team to fold

Is Heal on the money??? Thought he signed a two year contract.

Perhaps the second year was an option or Goorj has managed to negotiate out of his deal? SEM makes sense as they will spend big for him and Melbourne is his home town in Australia.
