Click here to join the #KingsRevolution   Sydney Kings coach Andrew Gaze says he was very impressed by the calibre of talent on show at the second annual rookie camp, and was a major step up from last year's event. 25 talented players from every corner of Australia - and even big man who flew over from India - were put through their paces over two gruelling days.     Singh Gaze rookie cmap

  Coach Gaze, along with Lanard Copeland and Luke Kendall then ran the group through a simplified Kings-style offence, and then let them loose in high intensity full court games.   Gaze addresses group compressed   One of the team's newest signings - Dane Pineau - opted to get involved and compete in the 5 on 5 scrimmages, and was particularly impressive on the defensive end. It was also a great opportunity to start the learning process under the Kings' coaching staff.   Pineau close up happy d2 compressed

  Sydney Kings Managing Director Jeff Van Groningen said the camp exceeded expectations, "We were excited at the level of talent we saw at the camp and the spirit of competition, intensity and work rate on show."

  Last year’s camp yielded several recruits who went on to suit up in both development and fully contracted roles during the season, and there is hope this will be repeated in 2017-18. This year the team has four Development Contract positions available, two of which are designated for players who developed their game in NSW as part of the Kings partnership with the state's governing body, BNSW. action shot d1 rc compressed   Full list of attendees Deng      Acuoth Lachlan Anderson Lucas     Barker Lachlan Barker Jack        Barry Adrian    Cabrerra Clayton    Carfino Sam          Daley Josh         Derkson Indiana    Faithful Matt         Hancock Darcy       Harding Peter        Hooley Tevin        Jackson Luke         Jamieson Christian Jurlina Obi           Kyei Jack          Lopez Mathuiang Muo Dane        Pineau* Jack          Purchase Isaac        Signal Amritpal  Singh Joel          Spear Adam       Thoseby Ray           Willis   *Already on the official Kings roster
