Mickell Gladness has signed with the Townsville Crocodiles of the Australian NBL for the 14-15 season.

Gladness played in the D-League last season with the Reno Bighorns, averaging 7.9 points, 6.2 rebounds and 1.9 blocks per game.

“We think Mickell is a perfect fit for us. Speaking to a lot of the guys who know him around the NBA, he is spoken of very highly. He is from a small town, a small market and that is the type of environment he is joining. We wanted someone who could fit into our community environment and team culture and Mickell ticks all those boxes,” Crocodiles coach Shawn Dennis said.

“We did a robust evaluation of Mickell and we’re very happy to be bringing him to our club. I know we have locked him in quite early in the off-season but sometimes when the right guy comes along it just makes sense to secure the deal and start building towards the season ahead.”
