Jo Lual-Acuil’s play off the bench for Melbourne United last season was a luxury few teams get to experience. As a heavy contributor towards Melbourne’s championship success, Lual-Acuil won the NBL’s Sixth Man of the Year award, averaging 9.5 points, 5.4 rebounds and 1.3 blocks in only 17 minutes of play per game.
