    I believe he may be clearing up/correcting this incorrect speculation in his next article.
    Here is what Boti said today.
    "ADELAIDE forward Jacob Holmes is president of the NBL Players Association, succeeding Wollongong guard and "Save the Hawks" mastermind Mat Campbell.
    Holmes said the NBLPA would meet this weekend to consider an official position regarding the independently-run Foot Locker Elite Classic High Stakes Hoops, the eight-team series scheduled for April 6-11 at Brett Maher Court and on ONE-HD free-to-air television.

    Like the sound of the overseas player draft. This tourney should be good viewing for hoops junkies.

    Might be reading too much into something, but could Donta Smith be suiting up for the Rush?

    Anstey and Mackinnon likely to play for 'Coasters'.
    Riley Luettgerodt will play for the 'Fleet'. Averaged 13 points a game at the University of Hawaii.
    I would expect Anstey not to play.

    "TICKETS for the Foot Locker Elite Classic High Stakes Hoops - they just have to get a shorter name - here from April 6-11 go on sale on Saturday, with special weeklong and group deals.

    The upcoming 24 overseas player draft for the eight teams will include two seven-footers, a couple of slam dunk title winners, a former Globetrotter and some college seniors."
