Gold Coast Blaze sack playing roster

The Gold Coast Blaze have sacked their contracted playing roster and administration as the club awaits confirmation of a deal worth more then $10 million. Coach Joey Wright along with players Mark Worthington, Adam Gibson, Anthony Petrie and Chris Goulding have a been sacked from their current contracts. If the team can stay in the league and this new investor funds them into next season then we may see them get re-hired. However Mark Worthington and Adam Gibson may chase better pay in Europe having gotten some international attention playing some decent minutes in the Olympic Boomers Squad. Anthony Petrie in my opinion is one of the most underated players in the league and would make a handy player on any team and im guessing a few NBL teams would now be chasing his signature. Chris Goulding can shoot the lights out on any given night but having given such late notice in the year for a signing it may be difficult for Goudling to find an equivelent position in the league. Wherever these players choose to go im sure they will find a team within this league or bigger leagues throughout the world. And it will be interesting to see if the Gold Coast Blaze can manage to stay in the NBL for 2012/13 season or if the league will be reduced to an 8 team roster. On Monday we will see if The Gold Coast Blaze are still in the competition and what NBL teams snatch up these off contract players.
