Majok Majok will be very handy at age 26 and 206cm he is the perfect fit. It helps he was raised here and has family here. He will hopefully inspire more African local talent to play the game.

When is SEM going to sign some internationals
Well Tai Wesley is one. But I'd expect the other 2 to not be signed until after NBA summer league is done and they can pick over who doesn't land a NBA contract.

Where did you hear that?

According to the NBL’s Liam Santamaria, the South East Melbourne Phoenix have inquired about the possibility of signing one of the world’s tallest individuals.

“The Phoenix want to play an up-tempo style, so whether (the Tacko discussion) progresses will be interesting to see,” Santamaria said.

With David Andersen signing today, I think the Hawks are the first team to complete their 2019/20 roster, and it should be a pretty good one if the Ball & Brooks combo works out.

See how John Roberson goes in the NBL, not really expecting Phoenix to be a very good team next season
It all depends on whether Creek plays or not. If he does then they should be competitive at least. A quality centre makes this a good starting 5, guards off the bench are fine, it's the backup bigs where they will be lacking and likely asking Creek/Wesley to move up to the 4/5 at times with 3 guards on the court.
Roberson (can certainly shoot, hopefully he plays some D also)
Magden
Creek
Wesley
Import #3
Bench :
G Adnam/Gibson/Stephens
F Pineua/Trist/Acouth

Hopefully they can get a Center like Amile Jefferson, I am worried by the bigs.

Fixture was released today (showing dates, but missing the tip-off times).
Regular season is still 28 games, meaning that with the extra team in the league it's no longer 4 games vs every other team. It's 4 vs some, and 3 vs others.

Prather to Melbourne is a massive move. Theyre going to be hard to beat this season. Perth's import centre better be amazing if they hope to compete.

White, Cotton, ?

vs

Prather, Trimble, Long

Not to mention McCarron, Goulding and co.

That's a big coverage shift going from Fox Sports to ESPN + SBS.
Thank goodness for the high-profile 'Next Stars' joining the league this season, as I'm guessing they were a big influence in ESPN wanting to be involved.

I hope this means no more of BT and Derwayne's rubbish commentary.
