Clinton. There could be a million reasons they didnt sign conklin. Not the right fit. Conklin has signed somewhere else. Kings didnt have the right deal.

Crocs Add New Import Omar Samhan
- Updated: December 9, 2015
The Townsville Crocs are set to announce their newest signing for the 2015-16 season, former St Mary’s big man and Egyptian representative Mar Samhan.
The 6 foot 11 center recently played in the D-League with Texas Legends where in 18 games he averaged 2.3 ppg and 2.6 rpg, playing in just 12 minutes per contest. Before played in the D-League Samhan also played in Germany, Lithuania and Egypt.
Samhan played his college career at St Mary’s where in his senior year he led the WCC in scoring at 21.5 ppg to go along with 11.1 rpg and just under 3 bpg.
Omar joins a long list of St Mary’s alumni that are playing in the NBL. They include Lucas Walker, Daniel Kickert, Stephen Holt, Mitch Young and Clint Stiendl. Other St Mary’s products such as Diamon Simpson and Patty Mills have also played in the NBL recently.
Nat Where You At
In my opinion he was Pattys best college teammate. Better than Simpson. Good hands and feet. Will translate well to NBL.
Yeah he played with, delly or patty, i cant remember which 1, i think patty, back in the 55 days. Which i can understand Y u dont
Hype is what brings in the marginal basketball fans. For a small league. Ex NBA players are big news and will get bums on seats.
Also no one hyped Conklin coming to the NBL. Infact many thought he would be cut within weeks. He lasted a few seasons, won mvp and all 1st team
Not saying it's the NBLs fault Drew, just saying I'm sick of hearing about ex NBA players & the "hype" they put around it, so many of them now it means nothing anymore.
Why would they cut King a Conk, last seasons MVP, then sign this guy?. This is why the NBL is lame & have no idea.
Looks slow and not very athletic like Schenscher. Has range, but I think he will have trouble with fouls
Wow, 2.3 ppg and 2.6 rpg - I can see why the Crocs were keen to drop Conklin and bring this guy in! \U0001f633\U0001f602
Head scratching on this signing? Clearly finances was the determining factor on this one! Crocs need a scorer, doubt he will do that! We shall see
@Andthefoulnet yeah, was a big fan of his at college, but then wtf happened?
@Andthefoulnet code name cheaper?
The teams issue is scoring. If he can get 20 points a game that's great but if he come in and averages single digits in points. He does not help us
We made an offer to a 3 man...who just got cut by Pelicans. It's a long story but ended up with Omar. He'll be great for us,6'11 all night
As he should have hehe, I wanted a athletic slasher and shooter 3/4 corey, I know we need a big , actually he is a good passer.
He just signed in tassy for off season, he was overweight 1st few yrs in college last yr he got in condition nearly got drafted by sac toen, been in europe works hard good post game and presents, lets hope he can ball still, not athletic very much stuck to the ground.
Michael Fazz Benjamin Creighton Ryan Patrick Justin Scott Kay Luke Sedgwick Alex Mahony mad pick up. This guy was good
No question he can ball, but i wonder if the NBL tempo be a problem. If he can adjust, he could be a 20/10 guy given the minutes.
