Sep 22, 2015 12:13 PM

Hakim Warrick has signed with Melbourne United.

Warrick has most recently played in Turkey for Torku Konyaspor and has been working out with the Atlanta Hawks prior to the signing.

Melbourne United CEO Vince Crivelli said that the club was pleased to have signed such a high caliber talent.

“Hakim is a strong replacement for Ekene, we think he can give us scoring punch and leadership that comes with being an eight year veteran in the world’s premier league,” Crivelli said.

“We think his skills will complement the team we have assembled, and fans will love his athletic above-the-rim playing style, we can’t wait to get him on the floor.”

NBL Down To Just Six Teams

Mar 12, 2015 2:09 PM

The National Basketball League of Australia and New Zealand is down to just six teams.

Townsville and Wollongong have each entered into voluntary administration.

Andrew Gaze, speaking on his SEN Radio show ‘Morning Glory’ on Wednesday morning, said the NBL should close its league and only relaunch it when it's ready.

“I have never held this view at all throughout this challenging phase of the NBL, but I have reached a position where I think they are better off regrouping and shutting it down,” Gaze said.

“Even if these two teams (Wollongong and Townsville) somehow find a way to get through administration, nothing is going to change significantly to turn around their plight because it is a slow burn.

“So shut it down, regroup and get the right model because the model is broken.”
