    You mentioned his argument, I responded to that. Lol

    I do remember. He posted his interpretation of the rules in the past several times. Whether he was wrong or not is irrelevant, but it’s always been his understanding of the SRP.

    I don't remember anything said to that effect. Maybe you misunderstood him

    So 1st King the other young player an Australian kiwi local was signed by the NBL to the next star last year , and was assigned to the Taipans

    Next , Kai was signed 1st to the 36ers as an Asian import before King as a next star player was transferred assignment to the 36ers from the Taipans. So in short Kai could have been signed by the NBL as a next star player (there were at least 7 spots still available, for the 9 teams at the time ) BTW as expected EWP & 36ers actually asked that Kai be a next star for the significant advantages in free funding amount from the league, then Kai could have been assigned to the 36ers , cause King had not been transferred yet. That would make more sense for the 36ers financially, as they can use league money on Kai , supposedly bigger contract.

    Then finally if they really want King a bench player avg 4 pts a game , he is a local anyway, just sign him as a local reserve , same equivalent as an Asian import who are treated as locals. His pay of $80k is small anyway.. like a local reserve.

    Point is there are smarter and better financial ways for 36ers to arrive with same roster outcome. But as we know this is all moot , cause bottom line Kai did not qualify as a next star player as assessed by the NBL even after request. .
    And of course he isn't a marquee player but a reserve (league had to asses Kai as "Non Marquee") , he could not sign as marquee player, cause the 4 max are already used by 36ers. (note max 4 marquee rules apply to Asian SRP who are treated as locals). Maybe next year , as Humphries contract expires

    That assessed and not qualified were mere fabrications by analyze. He has been wrong countless times and yet acts as if he really knows a lot or that he has insider info. With all the next star signees being unknown and rejects, it would be impossible for Kai to fail that category. The only logical explaination was that EWP's demands was way beyond what NBL would willingly pay for rising stars. The SRP signing of Zhou confirms that and refutes the blabberings of Analyze. Now for analyze insisting that SRP would have its own separate qualifications, that is also just his own opinion and mere fabrications. With his history of Kai, that take is 90% to 100% wrong again.lol

    Now we go back to Kai supposed salary, it is almost certain that Kai did really receive a multimillion dollar contract.haha

    Kai was sought after by many teams as confirmed by their GM and former Brisbane coach and new 36ers coach CJ Bruton. This is contrary to insinuations by some here that Kai was rejected

    https://www.spin.ph/basketball/new-a...210910-twfirst

    NEW Adelaide 36ers coach CJ Bruton admitted it was not long ago when he wanted Kai Sotto to be part of the Brisbane Bullets.

    "He was one of the guys that I wanted to bring to the Brisbane Bullets," said the 45-year-old Bruton, who as one of the assistants of former Boomers coach Andrej Lemanis pushed the organization to get Sotto.

    The Adelaide 36ers beat Brisbane to the punch in signing the 7-foot-3 center back in April. Little did Bruton know that months later, he will eventually get the chance to handle Sotto as he was named as Adelaide's new head coach.

    The Lakers have agreed to trade Marc Gasol, a 2024 second-round pick and cash to the Grizzlies for the draft rights to Wang Zhelin, sources tell ESPN. Deal saves Lakers $10M. Gasol and Grizzlies will work together on waiver and release to allow him to remain in Spain w/ family.

    https://twitter.com/wojespn/status/1436398838986706990

    The Lakers signed two former All-Star centers this offseason -- Dwight Howard and DeAndre Jordan -- for franchise's frontcourt. Gasol has a one-year, $2.7M that multiplies with Lakers luxury tax. Gasol, 36, is three-time All-Star, an NBA Defensive Player of Year and NBA champion.

    Another interesting development for the Lakers even if I dont expect that they get Wang Zhelin but they are stacking their rosters with able bigs that could defend. This is somehow an indication that they are loading their roster to stop Giannis, Embiid and Jokic. That development bodes well with Kai. They are not keen to play small ball and it would be a resurgence of bigs ones again.haha I said it first months prior. I wonder how will they project Chet next year when it is already the era of Giannis, Embiid and Jokic.

    Yes as confirmed many times Kai was offered and sought by many NBL teams to be a "next star " sign up. But did not qualify. Period.


    There is absolutely no rationale reason for teams not to use the free money the league pays for Kai as a next star. And just add on to it if it's not enough. And look Brisbane didnt even have a next star player yet at the time , as well as most teams ! It was there for them to use on Kai if he was qualified.
    BTW others here have seen the post CJ has shared about Kai in a different platform, to know more accurately the situation .

    Hahaha Kai isnt at the mercy of any team. He was sought after and they had the leverage to choose which team to select.haha it was in 36ers GM interview. Insisting on that he didnt qualify as next star again.haha all next stars doesnt hold water against Kai's credential. It was EWP who dictates the terms not any team.lol

    As always sowing fallacies just to degrade Kai.lol

    I guess . Kai is more in demand than Next star Lamelo and Giddey, when one believes he's greater than Duncan and Pozingis.
    Yes Tama naman, if that's how highly one thinks of Kai

    who said he is greater than Duncan and Porzingis? More skilled doesn't mean they are greater. You don't know shit about bball. There are more skilled dunkers than Carter but that doesnt mean they are greater. The proffesor is more skilled on handling the ball but that doesnt mean he is greater than kyrie or iverson. smh

    With the signing of the two Chinese bigs in the NBL,one would think the Chinese is either going to test Kai or try to embarass him.
