The Townsville have signed on their two import players for the season and have completed their playing roster.
The Townsville Crocodiles have signed new Power Forward Curtis Withers from the NBA d league for the 2012 NBL season. This is the final signing from the Townsville crocs having finalised their playing roster for the season. Curtis Withers is 28 yrs old 203cm and will play as a forward/center. Having graduated from North Carolina Withers played with Sioux Falls Skyforce in the NBA d league and averaged 9.5 points per game and 6.4 rebounds. “The league hasn’t seen many guys of Curtis’ mould in recent times, so we feel we have an angle that can be quite potent,” said crocs coach Paul Woolpert.
Withers averaged 55% shooting from the field in last season in the NBA d league and the Crocs will look to exploit this height and shooting advantage.
The second import in the roster is guard/forward Jason Forte. Forte is coming from the Alaska Aces from the Phillipines. Standing at 196cm and the age of 28 Jason Forte averaged 23.5 points, 10.5 rebounds and 2.5 assists per game.
“Jason can play point guard through to power forward, he is very versatile and an explosive athlete. He takes it to the rack hard and he can set guys up,” said Head Coach Paul Woolpert.
Having completed their playing roster the Townsville Crocodiles have some time to mesh as a team and establish their player positions going into the 2012/13 NBL season.
The entire roster stands at
Laurel, Mississippi, USA
