Sydney Kings Rumors
Adelaide 36ers have signed former NBA veteran, Josh Childress, bolstering their Australian-heavy lineup. Childress, who previously played two years with the Sydney Kings, will join the 36ers as their third and final import.
The Daily Telegraph can reveal the NBL has struck an agreement for the Sydney Kings, Melbourne United and the Brisbane Bullets to take on NBA teams in preseason clashes in the US in October. The Kings will clash with the Utah Jazz in Salt Lake City on October 3, pitting Australian internationals Kevin Lisch and Brad Newley up against fellow Boomers Joe Ingles and Dante Exum.
The Utah Jazz will be one of three NBA teams playing exhibitions against teams in Australia’s National Basketball League in October. The Salt Lake Tribune has confirmed that the Jazz will host the NBL’s Sydney Kings on Oct. 2 at the remodeled Vivint Smart Home Arena. The exhibition, which is reportedly one of three NBA-NBL games ahead of the NBA’s regular season, was first reported by The Daily Telegraph in Sydney.
The Sydney Kings have moved quickly to replace import Michael Bryson, signing NBA journeyman Steve Blake as their third import. The NBL ladder leaders released the young guard on Friday, announcing Blake as his replacement on Saturday afternoon.
