We're only spending a bit more: Sixers CEO
Sixers CEO Nic Barbato has responded to claims the Sixers are spending massive amounts of money in an Adelaide Now article:
"Our club revenues have more than doubled over the last 18 months and sponsorship is up by over 200 per cent," he said.
“We've rejigged a whole lot of the basketball spend and (it) is less than 10 per cent higher than what it was last year.
“Last year we had a Next Star in Mojave King, this year we don’t have Next Star, so while that doesn’t go in the cap, it was an expensive exercise for us.”
He said some of the basketball department’s operational savings had been redirected into player wages. He refuted claims Clark was earning US$50,000 net per month and said the American’s wage was offset by the money saved on Randall’s early departure: “it wasn’t as if we paid out that contract, it was a clean break.”
