Jamar Wilson has put pen to paper and will play the 2014/15 NBL season with the Adelaide 36ers.
The 36ers decided not to re-sign Gary Ervin who despite a very exciting playing style combined with the fact he averaged 20 ppg and 4.5 apg often came under fire under coach Joey Wright during the season. Ervin was suspended for one game and fined $7500 after an ‘unsportsman like’ foul during the semi-final series against the Melbourne Tigers which almost cost the 36ers a Grand Final appearance.
Jamar Wilson, who averaged 17 ppg and 5.3 rpg last season instead will bring a steady head to the 36ers and strong work ethic. Wilson now complements a a strong backcourt which features Adam Gibson and Peter Crawford already and has a vacant spot which the 36ers will use to sign another Australian guard like Rhys Carter, Rhys Martin, Daniel Dillon, Shaun Gleeson, etc (who are still available) or another import to finalise their guard rotation.
Other players currently contracted with Adelaide for 2014/15 include Anthony Petrie, Mitch Creek, Luke Schenscher, Brendan Teys, and BJ Anthony.
Jamar Wilson is one of the longest tenured imports in our league across the past four seasons where he played 81 games for the Cairns Taipans. Prior to his NBL career Wilson attended Albany University and played internationally in Belgium and Finland.
