– Where Basketball never stops

Rookie report week 9


Name: Anatoly Bose
Team: Sydney Kings
Position: Forward
Height: 6ft 6
Rookie Rank: #1
Last Week: #1
Bose has been inconsistent since coming back from injury, 6 points one game 22 the next. This round was no different, in a low scoring game against the Taipans Bose scoring could of made a 5 point win a more convincing win. Bose  played a shade under 20 minutes, scored 6 points on a poor 1/6 shooting from the field. He picked up 3 rebounds & 1 block. He looked slow & sluggish at times, coming in & out of the offense. Next week is a double header for the Kings, hopefully he will show up.

Name: Chris Cedar
Team: Townsville Crocs
Position: Point Guard
Height: 6ft 0
Rookie Rank: #2
Last Week: #3
Cedar backed up Eddie Gill in some valuable minutes as the former NBA player was struggling because of an injury. He played for 15 quiet minutes and managed to score 4 points, 2 assists & 1 rebound but shot just 33% from the field. If Gill’s injury still lingers then Cedar might be looking at more minutes over the next week or two.

Name: Greg Hire
Team: Perth Wildcats
Position: Forward
Height: 6ft 6
Rookie Rank: #3
Last Week: n/a
I was only made aware this week that Perth Wildcat Greg Hire is actually a rookie this year, last year he was a development player & this year the Cats signed him as a rookie. I doubt he will get rookie of the year & depending on where Bartlett ends up i doubt he will get higher than 3rd best rookie.
In limited minutes he scored 5 points & 1 rebound in a loss against the Adelaide 36ers.

Name: Everard Bartlett
Team: Free Agent (former Perth Wildcat)
Position: Point Guard
Height: 6ft 4
Rookie Rank: #4
Last Week: #2
Bartlett has been put on the inactive list now that Damien Martin has returned from injury. This means he is officially a free agent. No word on who (if anyone) will pick him up. Hopefully someone does soon..

Name: Alex Gynes
Team: Sydney Kings
Position: Guard/Forward
Height: 6ft 6
Rookie Rank: #5
Last Week: #4
Gynes was inactive for round 9.

Name: Martin Iti
Team: Sydney Kings
Position: Center
Height: 7ft 0
Rookie Rank: #6
Last Week: #5
Iti didn’t get a chance to play in round 9. He was DNP-CD

Name: Mitch Norton
Team: Townsville Crocodiles
Position: Guard
Height: 6ft 0
Rookie Rank: #7
Last Week: #6
Mitch is now activated and can play, but sitting on the bench behind one of the best guards in the league in Eddie Gill & behind fellow Rook Chris Cedar.
