Adelaide 36ers sign Boomers star Adam Gibson

The Adelaide 36ers have announced that they have signed current boomers team member and former Blaze player Adam Gibson for a 1 year deal with the team with the option of a second year. Rumours had been circulating for a while that this deal was going to go through but today it has become official the Adelaide 36ers have now recruited 3 of the Blaze' top players, Adam Gibson, Anthony Petrie and Jason Cadee. Last season Gibson averaged 11.4 points, 4.7 assists and 4.2 rebounds per game with the Gold Coast blaze and won the best defensive player award for the 2008/09 season. 36ers CEO Leanne Grantham was very excited with the signing and said,
“We have been in discussion with Adam since the demise of the Blaze and only today did he finally sign with us.  Adam is an aggressive player who demands attention in offense, he is the type of player who will take control and finish off those close games we know the team will experience this coming season”

Head coach of the Adelaide 36ers Marty Clark said,
“Having Gibbo in the team adds that excitement and aggression we need.  He can now focus heavily on his Olympic campaign and look forward to a really exciting season in the NBL with the 36ers”. 

The Adelaide 36ers start their preseason on August 4th when they take on the Nicholls State Colonels a Division 1 College team from the USA. Gibson however will not be able to join the team untill August 20th as he is playing for Australia with the Boomers at the Olympics. 
The Adelaide 36ers also do a 4 team tour through China as part of their preseason in September.
