Kenyon McNeail released by Adelaide

The Adelaide 36ers have today announced that import guard Kenyon McNeail has been released from their 2015/16 roster, after suffering a shoulder injury that requires extensive rest and possible surgery.

Clearly hampered by the injury he suffered at the NBL Blitz, the 24-year old could manage just four points per game in three appearances for Adelaide after showing enormous potential through the pre-season.

The all time leading three-point shooter at Louisiana Tech, McNeail led Adelaide in scoring at the pre-season Blitz at 17.5 points per game, and was fifth in the tournament in three-point shooting at 53.8% (7-from-13).

Sixers head coach Joey Wright, who personally selected him at a Las Vegas training camp in the off-season, was disappointed that McNeail’s injury forced the club to make this decision.

“It’s disappointing as Kenyon was a good fit for our group and only showed glimpses of what he’s capable of on the court,” said Wright. 

 “He’s a quality person and we wish him well in the future.”

The club will make an announcement on McNeail’s replacement shortly.

The 36ers have games against the Cairns Taipans at home on Thursday night, before heading to Sydney to take on the Kings on Friday night.
