Gold Coast Blaze load up

The other big mover and shaker so far this NBL off-season has been the Gold Coast Blaze. They took huge strides forward last season but weren't content with their semi-final finish and have definitely shaken things up again.

(Click on the links below to read the full story on each signing)
  1. First they signed veteran forward Stephen Hoare.
  2. They then brought in some youth and rebounding with Tom Garlepp.
  3. Their biggest move was bringing in former Breakers centre Rick Rickert as a naturalised Kiwi so he will no longer be classed as an import.
  4. They then signed Bennett Davison, former Tigers import who was a stand-out at the High Stakes Hoops tournament.
  5. And finally (for now), they signed future star Jason Cadee.
The 2010/2011 NBL season is still a number of months away but the Gold Coast Blaze are showing they're serious about making a run at the title. It'll be interesting to see what other moves they make and what type of player they bring in as their second import.
