Jo Lual-Acuil Jr to depart Melbourne United
After three years with Melbourne United, star center Jo Lual-Acuil Jr is set to depart the club.
"I've loved every minute of my time at Melbourne United. Hopefully I get the opportunity to run it back here later in my career," Lual-Acuil Jr said.
Last week, NBL analyst and commentator Liam Santamaria said Lual-Acuil Jr is set to receive some huge financial offers from overseas clubs, including teams in China and Japan.
Lual-Acuil Jr has been one of the greatest developmental stories in recent league history, coming into the club in 2020 as a backup, before blossoming behind Jock Landale into the league’s best sixth man in a championship-winning 2021 campaign, and finally establishing himself as one of the top bigman in the NBL across 2022.
