36ers sign Alex Starling

per Boti Nagy , he will take a local roster spot with his naturalisation.

This would be a really good pick up by the Sixers if true. Imagine Cleveland and Starling on the court at the same time, that would be some fantastic defense. Starling will also abuse smaller opponents inside in offense.

I've never seen Starling play but know he's dominated here in the state league for a while I just find it hard to get excited about Americans being brought up from lower leagues here by the Sixers after Daequon Montreal and CJ Massingale were unable to make the step up but at least Starling will only be a local player not an import like those two were.

Be interesting to see how Starling goes, happy to give him the gig as a cheap local, over the years he has put up similar NBL1 numbers to plenty of good NBL players in the same league.

The 36ers approach to the off-season is startling to say the least Jonno...

Maybe they'll put a pin in it and grab Dane.

Typos aside, this team looks pretty ordinary!

?Johnson/?Pinau
Wiley/Startling/Galloway
Cleveland/Marshall
McCarron/Dech
Scoring Import PG/Cadee

So basically we have MM even though rumours were 36ers wanted to move him on. There’s maybe cap-in-hand to Johnson even though everyone knows they don’t want him back.

That’s a fantastic start to a team.

They let one of the two shining lights last year leave.

They fail on multiple fronts to score south Aussies that would be good additions.

After having the absolute worst interior D in the league, they potentially/allegedly will proceed to use their import spot on Wiley instead of some sort of defender.

What in the actual fuck Adelaide?

Agreed KET, its not making a lot of sense!

At this point, if the Sixers sign Wiley, I think they have to use the last slot on an actual defensive big man and hope that Cadee's speed and ball-handling can give the backcourt a dimension it was lacking last season.

Doesn't look like a team with much hope of finals to me though.

Sebastian, nobody is saying we should sign SA talent to the exclusion of better players on the market. But if you have been paying attention, you would realise that Isaac White has shown enough to absolutely be worth a roster spot and Olbrich is a very skilled 6'10 kid and there aren't many of those about.

Its not like the Sixers have any better big man prospects available. They literally have Galloway and that's it. If they're going to punt on this season with a budget team, we might as well at least try to develop one or two young prospects.

Jonno, if we do sign Wiley, I think the way to go would be to use the final import slot on a defensive big man and live with McCarron and Cadee sharing point guard duties.

Not saying it'll be a good team, but at least if we have a defensive centre we can rely on, then we might be able to build some good defensive pressure on the perimeter with lots of mobile athletes in Cleveland, Wiley and Starling, plus stalwart defenders in Dech and McCarron. Get some rebounds, force some turnovers and attack in transition.

I'd start the season with Dech starting at the two, but with a plan for Marshall to start there eventually if he earns it. If Dech is playing well, then you get Marshall some more minutes at the 3.

I think Starling will mainly be used to rest Cleveland, but could get bigger minutes in some games if he is playing well.

I'd like to see Galloway get consistent minutes too, as I think he could become a nice weapon off the bench if given enough confidence.

So I'm thinking a lineup like this:

McCarron/ Cadee
Dech/ Marshall
Cleveland/ Starling
Wiley/ Galloway
Import/ Pineau?

Beantown, I dont mind your thinking, the line up I listed wasnt my preferred it was what it sounds like the 36ers are doing, Olgun has said a number of times the 36ers are looking for a scoring import PG, probably of the mould of Jaylen Adams.

My personal preference would be dont sign Wiley, sign Marcus Lee, obviously if Wiley is actually signed, we can no longer do this.

Sign Walton or Adams to the PG spot

Sign the best local PF you can not exactly sure who options seem to be DJ, Majok Deng, who are not perfect or if you can afford a more expensive option like Jack White, Brock Motum, Kay from overseas. Lets say the most realistic option is DJ.

That would give us

Marcus Lee/?Pinau
DJ/Galloway/Starling
Cleveland/Marshall
McCarron/Dech
Walton/Cadee

I dont hate your thinking if Wiley is signed, but I also cringe at the thought of McCarron and Cadee as our PGs, I'd personally still probably rather get the stud import PG and do the best we can with the big spot.

Just not exactly sure who is better

Do you go a likely cheaper local option like Majok Deng who can still play as a stretch 4?

Do we find someone younger with potential (olbrich would have been perfect) to share minutes with Galloway

Do we go the more hustle role player like Harris to play a role like Krslovic does for Tassie and share minutes Galloway?

Can we afford and successfully a recruit a marquee option from overseas such as Maker, Reath, White, Motum, Kay, Fotu?

Im open to any of these options to be honest.

I always hate this type of thinking. It turns a blind eye that it is a team sport and there is always lots of variables at play.

Going by your theory Phoenix should move on from Creek as he hasn't won anything. Denver to get rid of Jokic as he hasn't won in 8 seasons there. What were Utah thinking with Malone and Stockton as they didn't win anything. Ewing, Barkley, Iverson other players that are no good as they didn't win anything. Shit even McDowell-White hasn't won anything in 3 seasons maybe it is time he moved on also.

The question really is "could Adelaide be a top defensive side with DJ" because teams that aren't at the top 2,3,4 sides don’t win championships.

I’d like to think if you had a defensive PF plus Cleveland plus McCarron alongside Drmic and Dech who are good defenders, that the team would have been fine to cover for DJ.

Then they just needed to have a PG import that wasn’t clark or Randall.

But that’s last year.

Next season - I think the same applies - if they had a defensive PF (not Wiley) and a good point guard, then I think DJ would be covered fine.

The question then is - is DJs defensive liability worth the offensive output? Is he still capable of it?

That’s where last year was a fail - so many offensive bigs that cancelled each other out whilst offering zero defensive respite to the team. That made the calculation a clear negative.

Good on you as a non-Sixers fan for pointing out the elephant in the room, Mystro. I've been saying this stuff for years but as a Sixers fan myself get dismissed by the Sixers/DJ happy clapper supporters.

DJ has always given up more points than he scores, opposition bigs have a field day against us virtually every single game these past five years that he's been 'the man' on the team. As long as he's starting and getting enough shots he doesn't care but if he's not getting his shots or we dare bench him he sulks and spits the dummy until he gets his way again.

He's 35 now when are we going to finally end this bullshit?

Sure they can. They have finished on top of the ladder (if memory serves me correctly) and made multiple grand finals with him. As with all teams it matters who the other players are. That is why this "He hasn't won anything" saying is about as stupid as it gets.

"DJ has always given up more points than he scores" absolute fallacy. Majority of the case this is not true at all. Usually the fallacy is based on "Centre X scored 20 points, DJ is Centre so that is all on him" the reality is most of the points are scored when DJ isn't guarding that person and/or when DJ is off the court. Don't believe me go back and watch tape but your bias won't allow that.

DJ is one of the better bigs at guarding PnR. Average at guarding the block (not that teams focus on that much). Decent at rotations. Where he is totally shit is probably once a game he wont put his hands up to contest a shot or let the player go past him for a easy layup/dunk or he will be lazy on the block out (same as all bigs at times). That is where people then think he defends like that all the time but the game tape proves otherwise. He has also if my memory is correct has lead the lead in rebounding at least once. He lead the team in charges taken last season. A few seasons ago even blocked Wetzel to basically win the game. Doesn't sound like the huge defensive liability everyone keeps going on about. Lazy at defense at times, sure.

DJ can't command the salary he once did but he adds more value off the bench then any other big in the competition.
Now assuming he is willing to put his salary down and if you put your bias emotions to the side then who else is there. You have mentioned Gak and Harrison. That is just embarrassing that you think they are better options. Mystro on the other hand would think Loe is better than DJ. Loe is a poor mans DJ. He is terrible on the PnR and is slow as shit trying to guard anyone. He complains on almost every call no matter how obvious they are.

The reality is as a bench player and for the right money there is no local big better than DJ. You can lose all your emotions and hate him as much as you like but that is just the reality.

If Starling wasn't classified as an import he would've been signed years ago. A rebounding machine and very smart basketballer. Pity he is towards the end of his playing life when now finally gets a chance. Sixers have been in need of a rebounder and someone who doesn't mind the physical stuff inside. Will hopefully turn out as an okay signing.

I've said before I would be okay with him coming back on a less than superstar salary and if he's willing to come off the bench. It's been said on here he wasn't happy about being brought off the bench in the second half of last season and that his benching by CJ "wasn't handled properly". Like there's any way a coach can handle it properly, you're either starting or you're not.

That info came earlier in the offseason along with the usual threats to go play in Japan so that suggests DJ even at age 35 still expects to start and if that is the case he should fuck right off. We've been pandering to this guy for years now, highly paid, starting, all the shots he wants and not expected to play a lick of defence and missed the playoffs the last five years in a row no matter how much we change the players around him, the coaches you name it the only constant has been DJ.

btw before crowing about a block DJ had on Wetzell you might want to go back and look at the numbers Wetzell used to put up on the Sixers both at SEM and NZ, yet another big that routinely killed us.

This is where you lost me. Any semi-competent perimeter player who sees DJ switched onto him on the perimeter is a quick rotating help defender away from a bucket.

As a non-Sixers fan over the entire duration of his career I've never been as concerned about what DJ brings in points and rebounds for Adelaide as I've been happy to see him trying to defend my team on the other end of the court.

DJ used the same Japan threat just a few days before then Sixers coach Conner Henry got out of quarantine, then he was immediately sacked and soon after DJ was given a contract extension that has just ended and lo and behold the Japan threats start again, coincidence?

I'm sure even you can see the threats are BS, no team in Japan is going to sign him, the point of the threats is to strong-arm the Sixers admin into getting what he wants.

"None of it what info I got, it was info that was posted on here by others in the know."

Not posted by people in the know just people speculating which you take as fact. You also along the way thought DJ would sook and not play well when in fact he embraced the role. Lead the team in charges taken, I imagine lead the team in fouls against, lead the team in made foul shots made, probably his best year with assist, actually lifted his defense, stopped forcing shots like he did in the past. All in reduced time. Had games where he was the best in +/- and games were he was in the top 3. He had shit games also as did everyone.
If Sotto can play in the Japanese league then DJ would be good enough. If Olbrich can become Waardenburg level then I would have taken him over DJ but that is unknown. The rest of the bench bigs in the league aren't as good as DJ so I would keep him on a reduced salary for 1 more season with a club decision for a 2nd

And thought defence was the thing going around dehouse. Coach said he didn't want him back no matter how much he scored, explains why he changes nbl1 teams nearly every year.
It's just his bad attitude that makes him a liability. Teams can make up for individuals weaknesses. There's a reason why Carmelo Anthony, Demarcus Cousins etc can't get a gig in the NBA, teams just don't want that cancer and karma catches up to players in the end. DJ has the ability to start for nearly any team in the league, but everyone knows what he's like. He'll get his number retired in Adelaide but will never be a legend like Maher, Davis and others.

It's a vanity thing - he buys the club and two seconds later is vying to be chairman of the Crows whereby everyone responds with a "who?". Sick burn.
