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.
