Kings sign Jason Cadee for two more
|Steve Chalmers||Apr 8, 2016|
After a break out season in Sydney, Jason Cadee has re-signed with the club for a further two years.
Cadee was one of very few shining lights for the club over the course of the 2015/16 NBL season, after injuries among other factors cursed the Kings' year.
Starting all 28 games, Cadee averaged 14ppg and 3.5apg en route to being named the club's Members Player of the Year.
Managing Director of the Kings, Jeff Van Groningen was thrilled to bring back a fan favourite.
“We are extremely pleased Jason decided to remain with the Sydney Kings. Not surprisingly, there was real interest in him from around the League given he possesses a dynamic and still-developing skill set and is a quality young man,” Van Groningen said.
Cadee himself, has already seen the Kings' new grand plans start to shape up - with the signing of new ownership, followed by Australian legend Andrew Gaze being announced as the head coach of the team.
“I can’t wait to get started. With the new ownership and coaching staff coming in, things are definitely moving in a positive direction for the Kings,” Cadee said via the Kings' press release.
“As much as I felt like I improved last season, I was still disappointed with the way the team finished so I’m looking forward to a new start.”
“I think the group is going to learn a lot from someone like Andrew Gaze, who just dominated the league when he played. Then add the experience and knowledge that Dean Vickerman and Lanard Copeland bring, it will be a great coaching team.”
Sydney are now in the process of building a budding team for the new season; with Cadee joining Julian Khazzouh and Jeromie Hill as returning players, plus the addition of reigning league MVP Kevin Lisch.
