Magnay leaves Perth

Any idea where he's headed? To United to replace Landale?

Also Perth had no interest in bringing him back which is surprising given he was playing injured. I thought with a full preseason under his belt and in better physical shape they could get him rejuvenated but they had no interest in bringing him back

Why when they have import spots open or Reath.

Unfortunately we didn't see the best of him in his Perth stint.
With 3 imports his position is replaceable.
Hodgson, Reath and Humphries all remain unsigned.

He would have a big price tag with him at guess, ex nba on regime seems to do that, even though he really didn't play much. He would be good at United, vickerman runs a more up tempo style.

Pretty sure he wasn't overweight but he was playing with bone Spurs wasn’t he? I thought before coming over he elected to not have surgery which in hindsight may not have been a good choice

Not overweight but the pels stated they wanted to build his upper body to make him stronger at the center position. Unfortunately with some athletes it effects other parts the game. Speed, mobility, athleticism etc and it showed on will + injury. Look at his upper body brisbane when he left and Perth when he came back

Not surprised. It may be unfair since people are claiming he was injured but Magnay came in as a late season spark and didn't really do much. There was no Norton-like grit from this dude.

Cats cupboard is looking very bare, I can almost see another season with lack of depth coming up. If Wagstaff retires it looks even worse.

I said Tasmania in the second post. Perth also had zero interest in bringing back the big fella. They will go after an local Aussie who played in Europe this past season

Not sure he's the type you would want to "spend big" on. Solid highlight reels but doesn’t seem to have developed many moves in the post or a consistent shot from range. I’d say his best position may be at the 4, run the floor + provide rim protection with a more accomplished 5 taking the low post offensive focus.

We should expect a bit of dilution with another team being added. There's another $1m+ available for players. Magnay and Steindle are the kind of players who could benefit from this.

If 3 imports are allowed, it should help compensate for the dilution.

Perth don't have bottomless pockets.
On the whole they still need to look to break-even, and even turn a small profit in the good years.
They are planning on Cotton Naturalising and becoming their 1st Marquee. They're not looking to spend marquee money on a 2nd player, unless he really brings something.

Magnay can play the 4 or 5 role, which did make him a good fit for the starting Centre role under Trev's system. But not a good fit for the starting PF role, which is where Trev generally likes to have one of his big guns. WHich means he was probably always going to be offered more money and a bigger role elsewhere.

It's hard to speculate on Reath. Don't know if he's heading back, don't know how much he wants, or how badly he wants to be home in Perth.

Thing is, if you're going to pay somebody else marquee money, then they probably want to stick with only 2 imports, so realistically just chasing a 3rd import to fill the role makes almost as much sense.

If Mooney returns or Trev otherwise gets his gun starting PF, I wouldn't be surprised to see another Hunt or Plums type 20 minute import.

It's a pity we never got to see much of Ferg, as he has a big rap at the lower levels.

He showed a lot more grit defending Landale than John Mooney did!

"Perth don't have bottomless pockets." Since when? You pay Cotton $600k and you are seriously deluded if you don't think Perth don't have bottomless pockets.

Not a lot of big names left in the free agency market. I am preparing to be disappointed again with lacklustre recruiting depth. Jervis. white were recruited from the couch and credit to White for doing what he did but Jervis wouldnt have got a gig anywhere else.

I wouldnt be re-signing Majok Majok either - 3-4 minutes a game is a wasted slot.

Have faith in Trev. He's got a bit of form on the board. Just sorting out the chaff from the hay now. My guess is that Trev will test the depth of the SEN pockets. No spuds this time.

Did SEG perhaps talk Gleeson out of going to Japan by agreeing to a higher budget for the squad? That would be nice.

Jervis? Are you dumb. the wildcats pulled him out of three year retirement to plug in till cotton naturalised and plumlee could come back. He was only meant to be back for 2-4 weeks. They managed fine with no depth this season for the most part

If they managed fine with no depth they would of beat Melbourne in one game of the grand final. This way we basically handed them the cup in one of the most uninteresting grand finals in history.

Trev spends money when he needs to. Cottons salary was bumped up to allow for the covid discount, and in full expectation that he would become a Marquee. Sure he's paid a lot, but then again he's also the best player in the league, year after year.
If Mooney wants to buy in, and sign a multi-year deal, Trev will find the money, just as he did for Norton. But you're nuts if you think Perth is paying overs.
The Wildcats mostly do a good job of finding guys that will buy into the culture. Even when Kay was recruited, the Wildcats only matched the dollars he was offered elsewhere and left the decision up to him.

If Magnay gets back to full fitness and gets in a good pre-season, he'll be a fantastic addition to any team, and best of luck to him.

Trev likes Reath, and if he wants to come home to Perth, Trev will make it happen. But I'm not holding my breath.

And I have to say, after what he achieved with Blanch and White, I will applaud anyone Trev recruits, even Froling.

Huge news from Oluc. Will look fwd to Magnay with another year's development- is he the next Matt Hodgson, or the next Aussie to the NBA? Based on this year the former but the hype is the latter.

And Reath, Euroleague guy to NBL, great coup for NBL and Goorj.

Quality Aussies keep getting snapped up. Really really hope United can sign Humphries.

Humphries is the riskiest big on the market, we constant injury troubles I wouldn't be lining up to hire him. He is not even that old to have the injuries he has had.

"And you are deluded if you think Perf doesn't pay overs D2.0!"

ROFL
You don't seem to have any comprehension of what "paying overs" actually means.

Paying Overs, by definition, means paying more than something is worth, for the same thing. In this case, paying a higher than "market" salary to a player.

Why would Perth have to pay more?? Perth offer better facilities, better coaching, practically a guarantee of playing finals, and a better than even chance of winning a ring. Why would a player demand MORE money to play there?

Obviously they can pay more for their players than say Cairns, but that just means better on average players. Sending More isn't the same as paying overs.
