It's official as Sobey heads out

ADELAIDE 36ers' rebuild is set to begin in earnest, with Nathan Sobey posting his Facebook farewell to fans today, the club's vice-captain bound for greener pastures.

Whether he reunites with Mitch Creek at South East Melbourne Phoenix or likely with Matt Hodgson at Brisbane Bullets should be made official very soon.

Creek, the face of the Adelaide 36ers for the better part of the decade, has been promoted from the NBA G-League's Long Island Nets to a 10-day contract with Minnesota Timberwolves, continuing his NBA journey.

He previously had two 10-dayers with Brooklyn Nets, the second one cut short.

While his future looks squarely locked into The Show, Sobey (below) today confirmed what had become an open secret - that he would not return to his volatile situation in Adelaide.

"First off I want to thank the Adelaide 36ers organisation, fans, and community for everything they have done for me and my family over the past 5 years," he posted today. "There are also a lot of people behind the scenes that do not get the recognition and I can not thank them enough for the time and effort they put into me and the club.

"I’d also like to give a massive shoutout to my teammates - you have all become like brothers to me and I know I will hold life long friendships with all of you.

"The last 5 years has had a lot of ups and downs but I have grown and enjoyed my time as a Sixer. Adelaide will always be a part of our lives, a lot of memories have been made that will stay with us forever.

"Again Adelaide, THANK YOU!!!"

The Sixers are believed to have put an offer to Cairns Taipans' highly-sought import playmaker Melo Trimble and there are unconfirmed rumours club management is talking with Jerome Randle.

Adelaide coach Joey Wright is not believed to be on board with the latter move, though with Ramone Moore and Jacob Wiley signed, an import point guard must be the 36ers' top recruiting priority.

NBL Rookie of the Year, Harry Froling (above), also has indicated his intention to nominate for the 2019 NBA draft.

Adam Doyle's days with the 36ers also may be done with considerable interest in Shaun Bruce.

Tai Wesley today signed with South East Melbourne Phoenix in the first big free agent move.

Champion Perth is in the market for an import centre, Angus Brandt declaring his intent to play in Europe.

AJ Ogilvy is back with Illawarra while Brisbane has released Cam Bairstow and Melbourne has left Craig Moller on its free agents list.
