That’s absolutely fantastic, go the snakes.Machado back to Cairns on a 2 year deal.
Huge to get Machado and Oliver back. These Cairns re-signings are the biggest the NBL has had in years imo, bigger than Cotton. For a small market team like Cairns to retain such quality guys is huge for the league.
Charles Barkley was an undersized Power Forward at 6'5" and Tate is very much in that mould. I'm not claiming he's on Sir Charles level but he could be a solid sixth man through out his NBA career.Tate is off to the NBA, joining Weaver at the Rockets on a 3 year deal.
Personally see him struggling in the NBA. Did very well as a very undersized PF in the NBL where he was able to use his athleticism and speed to make up for his lack of size, won't have those advantages in the NBA though. Not sure he's skilled enough to be a good NBA SG/SF either.
Very surprised he's on a 3 year deal, I would have thought they'd go just the 1 to try him out.
The Adelaide 36ers are proud to announce the signing of second import and former EuroLeague star Tony Crocker for the 2020-21 NBL season.
The Oklahoma native and former NCAA standout from Oklahoma University, Tony’s decade-long pro-career has included significant stints in the Basketball Super League in Turkey and the EuroLeague.
The 6.7ft, 33-year-old forward most recently played with Pinar Karsiyaka in the Turkish Super League and the Basketball Champions League as their swingman. During the 2019-20 season, Tony averaged 10.5 points during the COVID shortened season. He had previously played in the EuroLeague including for powerhouse Khimki Moscow.
Interesting that they're still keeping a small part of the tax deductible option as not tax deductible, and then treating members who take this option as non-members for the season.
Are they related to former Geelong Champ Mark Bairstow (I assume they are his lads) ?
