Reath signs with Illawarra Hawks

Today's signings
Reath one year at Illawarra.
Jack Salt one year at Brisbane
Magnay one year at Tasmania.

Hawks particularly looking good.
Salt signing might indicate H Froling is going elsewhere.

All the experts got Reath wrong. That's why the fantasy crap is a waste of time. Let's hope Magnay can be literally shaped by Roth.

JJ haven't been able to get any first choices, they better land some good imports.

Still pretty early in the off-season. Just because they've just signed role players so far doesnt mean they wont have other things lined up.

Yes it is very early, just don't see it as the start they would have liked and they were spruiking to anyone who would listen, as early as the nbl cup.

Jackjumpers need to get two High level players out of the free agents otherwise they will need to do very well when it comes to getting the three overseas imports.

It will definitely be big if we get Magnay because I'm told he is a great player.

i guess the hawks arent chasing Gorjok Gak, just saying Gak is following the new Bullets head coach

Yeah, as always, too much focus on one or two players.
and talking-heads falling over each other to break scoops, then backtracking.
When in reality they don't have a clue.
Claiming Norton to Tasmania, then McVeigh, meanwhile nobody picked McDaniel.

Wait and see I suppose
If Reath is returning, Hawks make as much sense as anywhere

The talk is starting in Tasmania, JJ my friend, it just hasn't worked out. Sometimes you have to do the ground work before talking yourself up.

One of the comments on the signing post is by Tony Crocker stating Wildcats need a wing,ight be talking about signing with us? Would assume he's cheap and will come off the bench behind Blanch. He showed glimpses, but not sure if he was used the best way at the 36ers.

Crocker is obviously angling for his next gig but he would do a lot better in a structured offence at Perth then the freewheeling style at the Sixers.

I reckon off the bench in the Perth system Crocker could be one of the most effective imports. He also is a very good defender and seemed to have a good attitude even when Adelaide were losing.

With Jack Salt signing with Bullets, his teammate Deshon Taylor has been linked to multiple teams as well due to 3 import rule being back

Averaging 23 pts
5 asts
5 rebs
3 stls

Jack Salt has been dominate when playing has been taking care of his body to not over do it this season after not playing for almost 2 years

He was a great defensive stopper in college, I hope he gets an injury free run, will be a great asset.

Not saying he's gonna be dominant but he’s going to bring a Colton Iverson like impact. Great defensive/rebounding big & offense will come around

Hope we retain Hodgson over Froling, then.

I don't know Salt's game but his description above suggests that he and Froling would be too much alike?

Harrison is already locked in.

I would not be paying overs for Hodgson, to foul prone. Salt and Harrison with Froling as back up 4/5 would be fine. Bring Law and Patterson, that B J was ok as well.

I'll stick with Hodgson over Froling (even more so, after your comment)

Thanks.

And I agree with, "Bring Law and Patterson (back), that BJ was ok as well.

Froling under a coach that demands discipline, gets him fit will still be a good asset. He has to be driven and cop no crap or you're out attitude.

Atm it's...
Illawara Hawks - B.Goorjan
6’4 T.Harvey(i)/6’1 E.Naar
SG(i)/6’6 D.Grida
6’5 J.Simon(i)/6’8 D.Deng
6’11 D.Reath/6’6 M.Darling
7’0 S.Froling/6’11 A.Gak

But some think darling may leave before contract up…

So could be…
Illawara Hawks - B.Goorjan
6’4/T.Harvey(i)/6’1 E.Naar
SG(i)/6’6 D.Grida
6’5 J.Simon(i)/6’8 D.Deng
6’11 D.Reath/6’11 A.Gak
7’0 S.Froling/6’11 A.Ogilvy remains

Or even vet ogilvy moved on…

Younger squad of…
Illawara Hawks - B.Goorjan
6’4/T.Harvey(i)/6’1 E.Naar
SG(i)/6’6 D.Grida
6’5 J.Simon(i)/6’8 D.Deng
6’11 D.Reath/6’11 A.Gak
7’0 S.Froling/6’11 G.Gak brother comes in from college.

Does anyone think we will see Cam Bairstow back in the NBL, he's such a fine player with unfinished business but a body that can't be trusted... how would you react if you heard that he was coming to your team?

Maybe he doesn't get a roster spot, but comes in as an injury replacement for a short time somewhere

The Hawks are also privately confident that Tyler Harvey will return for another season in Illawarra, sources said, after the import guard finished as a finalist for the 2021 NBL MVP trophy.

"D2.0 do you still think the person who broke this signing weeks ago doesn't have a clue?"

Never said they don't have a clue.

I just think it's pointless to be in such a rush to be "first" that people make claims of fact before things are actually official.

Clearly, something wasn't final two weeks ago, so anybody saying it was, was wrong.

NB: Off the top of my head, I think ESPN (Olgun) has a better hit rate than Santa. Santa too often mixes "reporting" with his opinions (which often are clueless)

Really?

Player returning to Australia, supposedly at least 4 teams chasing his signature...

Goorjian selects said player to make his Boomers' debut
> Player signs with Goorjian's NBL team

Same thing happened with Lemanis

Gleeson took Majok to China with the Aust NBL team when he was a free agent and gee, arrives home and signs with the Wildcats. Happens all the time.

Majok was playing for United in 2017 and went on to sign for the Breakers after that and didn't end upcoming to Perth until 2 years later but sure Trev poached him

His euro stats were average but what he's done in the two practice games for boomers looks impressive. This should be a very useful signing.
