Justin Simon? (to Perth?)
Had a solid season and was a deserving winner of the Damo.
So I was a little surprised Hawks didn't move to re-sign him.
Does signing Trice indicate that Simon won't be back for the Hawks?
Given the way Goorj often ran with a small backcourt, it's not inconceivable that he would want all 3?
Or did a desire for a dedicated PG push him towards Trice?
It's been reported that Simon's Dad supposedly made a Twitter or Instagram post, indicating that Justin was heading to Perth to join Cotton. (I did see a screenshot, but can't find it now.)
Others have commented on the apparent comradery between Cotton and Simon. Not sure what the history is?
I wonder if this idea predates Trev's departure?
It was my understanding that they were looking for a import combo guard to come off the bench, backing up both Norton and Cotton.
If that's still the plan, then Simon would be a good option.
