36ers close to signing 1st Import

JVG on radio today suggested they were close to signing a flat out 3 point shooter in one of their import spots and that this was part of the reason they didn't try to match the Jack Jumpers offer for McVeigh.

Heh - Would be nice if they managed a good import from the very start tbh. Been a while.

C Humphries/Sotto
F Import defensive big?/Johnson
F Dech/
G Import shooter/
G McCarron/

Tbh I'd be ok with crocker as a third import off the bench play him anywhere from pg to sf, and try to snare some backup shooters like White, Rigoni

KET. No chance Johnson comes off the bench.
Also not enough shooters in your starting 5.

Humphries/Sotto
Johnson/defensive 4/5 import
Star import 3
DJ newbill/dech
McCaron/white

There is no way Kevin White will be back in Adelaide. While some may have liked his efforts and contribution for Pert in the finals, he is probably not the right personality to have around a new team with a relative new coach trying to create a new team culture and playing style.

If you listen to Liam Santamaria latest huddle podcast he mentions Adelaide plan to bring Johnson off the bench, just for those laughing at the idea

They were trying to get guys like wetzell or magnay to start pf, given they gave missed them both I assume they will grab a import pf

Jvg also spoke about being a bit deeper, so I'm thinking both Johnson and dech off the bench

Line up something like

Humphries/Sato
Import/Johnson
Import/
Import/dech
McCarron/

Gives them a nice main 7 and could go a touch deeper depending on how they fill out the remaining spots

The comment from Liam on DJ coming off the bench, as much as it surprises me, does this have anything to do with the rumour of Adelaide going after a big name 4 man? Are they intending to bring in a guy like Motum and have DJ play backup to him?

Yea i think thats sort of the plan, Liam mentioned they made strong offers for Wetzell and Magnay, so may not be able to get Motum hes generally too expensive for the NBL and coming off a great season in France so i doubt that changes, but get a high level import instead

Signing an unknown import at any time is a risk.

However, if someone you know of becomes available early then nothing wrong with snapping them up asap.

So the Sixers have swung and missed on Wetzell and Magnay, when Humphries is still available? Would like to know what's going on there. Humphries and McCarron would give the Sixers potentially the best defence in the competition. Just pay the man and worry about hit and miss imports later.

Either do what teams like Cairns do and sign highly regarded prospects straight out of college or B, do what teams like Melbourne do and sign those players after they've proven themselves.
Instead we bring out some has been, sack them a third of the way in and then grab whoevers available. Although imports aren't really as important as they used to be, they're still a major component. And seeing as our backcourt seems to be set, a gun scoring forward is a priority.

Master Chief, is that based on something Liam said?

I definitely find it odd that we would be trying to land Wetzell or Magnay on top of DJ and Humphries. Seems like an over investment in big men to me. Also likely to cause problems with not enough minutes to go around.

Not a bad start. Obviously can shoot and looks crafty. I like how he can score several ways. Shoot the 3, mid range, floater and get to the rim.

Honest question, one I was pondering a few days ago.

What would Adelaide supporters think if DJ was guided to leave the club. Good scorer obviously, but takes up a lot of coin and is a complete zero on D. Imagine someone playing his position who gave it on both ends.

Anon 859202 is that a rhetorical question?
There's been murmurs DJ is leaving.

Personally I don’t mind it. Unfortunately it’s a win based audience and he can’t get us to the finals.
If his money could be spent better/upgrade then all for it.
Would need a star 3 or 4 player in return though.

Great news that Humphries has signed for the Sixers! Would like it to have been 3 years, but I'll take it as it gives us a shot at a title this year if they sign the right pieces around him.

I'd strongly disagree with the idea of DJ leaving the club early. I think he and Humphries were very effective together last year and if you watched closely, DJ's intensity was very high in the first half of the season before the number of games and having to carry the front-court by himself wore him out.

The other thing people are critical of is that he doesn't challenge enough players at the rim. I would say true, BUT a lot of the time it is DJ making the decision not to risk a foul, because he knows from long experience that if he is out of the game, there is NO-ONE on the bench who can hold down the fort! That has been true of nearly all Sixers teams throughout DJ's career.

Now I do agree that in the 4th quarter of games, when he has had fouls to give, he has not been aggressive enough defensively. Personally, I too would like to have seen him be a bit more aggressive on the defensive end, but I don't think he has been as bad as some like to make out.

Regardless, we all agree that he's not as good defensively as you'd like your centre to be, but that is why you need a GOOD front office who can find a strong defender to pair with him.

In the early part of DJs career, we had Petrie and made the Grand Final in 2013-14. After Petrie, the only good defensive front-court player we had was Childress and guess what, we made the Grand Final again that season with our defence forcing the lowest opposition FG% in the league.

Most of DJ's career, he played for Wright, who always emphasised guard play and a run and gun offence. So his offensive skills have never really been capitalised on as much as they should've been. But he has still been the best offensive big man this league has had for the last 6 years or so.

To me, when you have an unusually talented Aussie that no-one else in the NBL can match, you build the right team around that guy and capitalise on it. It took until last season to finally get a coach who wants to run his offence through his big men and believes in the importance of good half-court offence and defence. We also finally got a big in Humphries who can cover defensively for DJ.

Personally, I want to see what a healthy Sixers team constructed around DJ, Humphries and McCarron can do if the coach can get a good half-court offence and defence installed.

If it turns out that the DJ and Humphries combo doesn't work, then by all means, they could look at trying to stretch DJ's final year or something. But at 33, this is almost DJ's last dance, so I'll be getting behind him and hoping he and Humphries can bring home our first title in 20 years!

I like DJ.

I appreciate what he has done for the club.

I have long accepted his defensive deficiencies in tandem with superior offensive skills, but to suggest he doesn't challenge shots because he is somehow preserving himself for fouls and hence his court time on the offensive end is sorely misguided.

Defence is just not in his game, he will rebound well thats it.
