Coenraad signs with Hawks

Has signed with Illawarra effectively as a 12th man who is on standby pending any Hawk injuries.
No rules broken here I'm not sure how it works salary wise whether it's minimum salary or just pro rata based on games played.

Might be some arrangement with an off-court role that made sense to lock in now? He was serviceable last season.

NBL.com.au suggests he is signed as an injury replcement but not who for.

Loverbroker: per OP - "on standby pending any Hawk injuries."

It's a bit of an odd one as the Hawks roster is already full so he hasn't really been signed to the roster. Just signalling that if anyone gets injured during the season he will be stepping onto the roster to replace them, more a glorified PR stunt than anything.

So he's not an injury replacement, remains a community orificer until an injury does happen.

Is this even news worthy as a feel good humanities piece?

He's on the roster, draws a salary, and trains with the team. It's a massive loophole and this is one of the more minor abuses over the years. Wildcats used it to bring in Magnay without sacking anyone, United used it to have a spare import sitting around just in case.

So no, it's not just a PR thing.

He's always been good. Loyal clubman.

No he isn't because their roster is already full. They've already signed 11 players as Gak a DP last season is moving onto the full roster.

It is a PR stunt because he hasn't been signed to the roster and if none of the 11 players get an injury next season that requires them to miss a game or more then Coenraad will never come onto the roster and thus never play a game.

Why would he need to sign a contract unless they were worried another club would sign him? Unless insurance wise in terms of himself getting injured training?
Seem to remember an assistant coach somewhere started playing again when injuries really struck.

Zodiac is right but Kobe's point also rings true, I think teams are allowed to be engaged by the team as a floating injury replacement player.

I think Jared Bairstow was one such example last season, he was out when the team became full but back in whenever there was an injury to Cotton / Steindl / Travers. But they aren't on the roster.

Only if you define 'roster' as fully-contracted players and exclude DPs and Next Stars. He's in exactly the same category: on the roster, contracted to the team, doesn't take up one of the 11 fully contracted spots.

He replaced Majok, Majok never came back but they signed Magnay as an additional injury replacement. Once Cotton went down, Bairstow was brought back in.

Well yeah that is the only definition of roster there is.

No, he isn't on the roster because there isn't a spot on the roster left for him and he hasn't been signed as a replacement for someone coming off the roster. Contracted to the team as a glorified training player sure, but not on the roster no.

The Hawks 11 man roster this season was completed when they signed their third import Antonius Cleveland.

Imports: Tyler Harvey, Travis Trice, Antonius Cleveland

Locals: Duop Reath, Sam Froling, Harry Froling, Isaac White, AJ Ogilvy, Emmett Naar, Daniel Grida, Akoldah Gak

Don't argue with KR. He thinks he's right. That's all that matters in his tiny world and mind.
