Creek, Sobey on the NBA trail


DYNAMIC Adelaide 36ers duo Mitch Creek and Nathan Sobey shortly will be bound for the US, taking a major step toward fulfilling any NBA ambitions the NBL stars harbour.

Creek, who took the Aussie winter off, then suffered a hand injury just when it looked as though games with Utah Jazz's D-League affiliate had been secured, will play in the Summer League with the Utah Jazz.

He is set to play Summer League in Las Vegas but may also be considered for matches at the Orlando series.

Having just completed a successful stint playing in Greece, Sobey is taking time off at home in Warrnambool ahead of attending mini-camps with three NBA clubs.

"I'm really excited," Sobey told Warrnambool radio.

"The ultimate goal is the NBA but I don't like looking too far ahead of myself."

Sobey, below, is equally excited the 36ers have retained their Australian core for the 2017-18 campaign, with both him and Creek returning, along with Daniel Johnson, Matt Hodgson, Brendan Teys, Anthony Drmic, Majok Deng and Adam Doyle.

The Sixers soon are expected to announce signing Ramone Moore for one import spot while continuing the pursuit of a playmaking guard and a versatile big.

After Sobey's try-outs with three NBA clubs, his management is confident he too will be invited to further show his wares at Summer League.

Both players have the complete support of 36ers coach Joey Wright and the NBL club's management.

SYDNEY Kings have signed Kansas University forward Perry Ellis to their 2017-18 roster.

Ellis, 23 and 201cm, averaged 16.9 points and 5.8 rebounds in his senior year.

Undrafted last year, Ellis played Summer League for the Dallas Mavericks, suited for a preseason game with Charlotte Hornets, then played D-League for Greensboro Swarm, Charlotte's affiliate.

Ellis appeared in all 50 games for Greensboro in 2016–17, averaging 9.8 points and 4.7 rebounds.

"I have followed Perry's career for a number of years and always enjoy watching Kansas play," Kings coach Andrew Gaze said.

"As far back as this time last year, (Kings managing director)  Jeff (Van Groningen) and I spoke about how beneficial it would be if a guy 'like' Perry Ellis could join our team, so it's fair to say we are thrilled we have the man himself signing with us.

"His pedigree, versatility and basketball IQ will be key attributes that will assist us in strongly moving this program forward."
