I guess this is a good time to throw out there that my time at ESPN Australia, and as a journalist, has come to an end for now. I'm taking on an opportunity in a different area within the Australian basketball space, so it’s time for a change. Really excited for what’s next

Public relations role?

His journalism was really just PR puff pieces anyway.

Player Manager makes almost no sense. I hear that is what he is doing though...

That would make a lot of sense - being hired by the people who you were indirectly working for while a journalist.

A role in the player agent world would be my guess since he's got a close relationship with Moldovan.

Interesting, just noticed on his Instagram. Definitely will be missed in the journalist world.

Decent journalist. Though absolute cringe worthy when he tried to dissect the games X & O's

Reported news. Was good to have someone doing it for ESPN and hopefully they'll find a replacement quickly.

Journalists often leave to work for the organisations they used to write about.

"Media Managers" of AFL clubs, putting out pressers to their ex workmates.

Politicians like employing them too. More money in writing press releases than doing journalism now.
