The list goes on...

Yeah it did but I think there will always be a place for it, but yeah Australia produces a lot of quality European level players with the odd guy making the NBA, there's also the likes of Ingles, Jawai, Nielsen, David Anderson, Dave Barlow, Brad Newley, Mark Worthington amongst others.

But a injection of guys who they can promote as "former NBA" players could boost sales imo in the local league.
