Melbourne United has signed former New Jersey Nets big-man, Josh Boone, sources told foxsports.com.au. Boone will join United as a temporary injury replacement, but is expected to be with the team for the remainder of the 2016-17 season, sources said. After David Andersen and Devin Williams both suffered long-term injuries, United immediately began searching for a player to bolster its frontcourt, with the team choosing to go with the 32-year-old Boone.
Josh Boone: Right now, I’m not visiting some exotic location, or in a night club surrounded by beautiful women. I’m sitting alone in my apartment, surrounded by boxes because I’m packing up and my lease is up on Monday, and hoping for a phone call from one of my agents someday soon, saying there’s a team that wants me to come and play for them. The life of a pro athlete is not always glitz and glamour. Sometimes, it’s total uncertainty; uncertainty of where you will be living next week, what country you will be making your money in, and when that next paycheck may actually come. But despite all of this, I still love what I do, and I wouldn’t trade it for the world.
