Former AFL Player Completes NBL Code Switch
Switching things up.
Former Fremantle ruckman Craig Moller has completed a code switch, starting in the first game of the 2016/17 NBL season for the Sydney Kings.
Moller, 22, spent three years on the Dockers' list, playing just the one game in 2013.
He was delisted at the end of 2015, and instead of continuing his footy career, decided to pursue an NBL dream.
Moller played plenty of basketball as a junior, and after training with them made one brief appearance for the Sydney Kings late in the 2015/16 NBL season, playing just under two minutes.
But after impressing for the Sutherland Sharks and Ballarat Miners in the months since, his form was rewarded with a developmental deal with the Kings.
He played the first match of the NBL season on Saturday night, playing 13 minutes and 33 seconds and racking up four rebounds and an assist in the Kings' four-point loss to the Brisbane Bullets.
One to watch.
