Announced this morning.

3 x NBL clubs (Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane) will go to the US at the start of Oct to play against Jazz, Suns and Thunder.  Huge for the NBL, however it's during our regular season (kind of) and Wildcats and 36ers got totally screwed.  Just found out also that the CEO of the NBL is the owner of Melbourne United, if thats not a massive conflict of interest I don't know what is!  ::)

Yeah big article on him in the finance section of the paper a while back. Bought Melb United when they were on their knees then went flower it, and bought the entire league.

But hey, pretty used to Victoria-centric sporting codes because Victoria. Melb United still suck, Wildcats got ripped

Muthafloweras are rolling out a starting 5 of Ware, Goulding, Prather, Boone and Anderson!  :o  Last year player contracts and salary caps were meant to be made public knowledge, surprise surprise this didn't happen with Melbourne meaning their costs for last year were hidden somehow allowing them to spend 3 times the amount of salary cap whilst other teams can barely afford 1 import.  Absolute bullshower, hope they get found out and some form of punishment occurs.  Good luck United, cos Perth are still gonna wax yo ass!  Love last year how keyboard warriors on social media were saying Perth "buy" titles, lol, we have the most consistent roster in the league over the past decade and 2nd most consistent roster is NZ, both of whom are the only teams who have won flags in the past 8 seasons.  Suck it the rest of of the NBL.

Flogbrook looks like an idiot now. Ware killed him. As much as I hate Melbourne United it has made Westbrook look like an arrogant prick and no confidence about what he said at all

Surely if you're Westbrook, you come back out and praise them about their play and say something respectful and positive about the game and all would be good, not sure if he will though.

Embiid signs max 5 year deal!  :o  Surely they would wait out the season.  Oden Embiid or bust.  Hoping it pays off for their sake and cos I want to see him ball for years!

thats huge, if he is getting the max surely they could have waited. Unless he said something that made waiting negative.

31 games and getting super max.

just shows how good he can be, his personality alone is worth alot.

Can you imagine if he gets healthy, he could easily be the biggest player in the league.

There are a ton of triggers and they have protected themselves if he gets injured in the contract with a ton of the guaranteed money disappearing. They are now shifting their attention to extending RoCo which is apparently mostly worked out. They were just waiting to finalise the Embiid deal before signing Covington.

The only downside to doing it this way is they shoot themselves in the foot in terms of signing guys this off-season. They could have had a look at who was available as a max FA and gone after them. The other two guys they could always go over the cap to sign but now they can't do that.

Embiid is a beast and the deal was coming either way.

I dont think there is nay point in FA.

its time to roll the dice, the team as it stands if healthy has loads of potential just need to get games into them.

Fultz Embiid Simmons have combined for 31 games.

True but in Oden's 82 games he only put up

776 points 605 rebounds 49 assists and 115 blocks and hit 0 3s

In Embiids 31 game career he has

626 points 242 rebounds 65 assists and 78 blocks and hit 37 3s

The injury worry with Embiid is supposed to be the foot. The same foot that gave him 0 issues last season and has been healthy for months. Oden had microfracture surgery on his knee. It's apples and oranges. Forget their performances when both were on the court.

Embiid is also probable for the next pre-season game. The rumor was his management refused to clear him until he received a new contract extension. The fact he might play in preseason lines up with that.

Apparently there is an injury clause in his contract.

https://basketball.realgm.com/wiretap/247667/76ers-Have-Limited-Protections-In-Contract-With-Joel-Embiid



Across each of the final four seasons of the extension, ending with the 2022-23 season, the 76ers could waive Embiid for a financial benefit if he's lost because of a contractually agreed upon injury that causes him to miss 25 or more regular-season games and if he plays less than 1,650 minutes.

Reckon we're due to move to a 2017/2018 season thread given we're a week away from season start?

It's supposed to be the most complex extension in league history. There is not a single player in the league with his skill set. They've managed to find a way to sign him and protect themselves. It's a win/win in the end.
