Kings re-sign Cadee

Jason Cadee has agreed to remain with the Sydney Kings for a further two seasons. The 186cm backcourt dynamo has already had two productive seasons in the purple and gold, coming off a 2015/16 campaign where he started all 28 games, averaged an NBL career-high 14 points per game and led the team in assists with 3.5 dimes per contest. His efforts earned him a pair of club end of season awards – the Sydney Kings Members’ Player of the Year and the Community Award for his tireless work in the local community and the positive impact he’s made to many lives. The 2016/17 season will be Jason’s seventh in the NBL after beginning his career at the Gold Coast Blaze before moving to Adelaide in 2012 where he helped the 36ers reach the Grand Final the following season. The Sydney-born Cadee has played a total of 56 games with the Kings and is highly regarded for his speed, court vision and ability to hit the outside shot. Sydney Kings Managing Director of the Sydney Kings, Mr Jeff Van Groningen, said he was thrilled that Jason had decided to once again pull on the iconic Kings’ jersey. “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,” Mr. Van Groningen said. Cadee, who is currently starring for the Bankstown Bruins in the Waratah League, is excited with the prospect of playing for his hometown team once again. “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.” “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.” The Cadee name is synonymous with basketball in this country. Both Jason’s parents, Robbie and Debbie, have represented Australia. Robbie is also one of the most decorated men in the history of the sport in this country, having won an NBL title as a player with St Kilda in 1979 and being named NBL Coach of the Year in 1983 as the sideline leader of the Bankstown Bruins. Jason has previously been a member of the Australian Boomers squad and in 2010 was a part of the World Select Team at the Nike Hoops Summit. His re-signing with the Sydney Kings brings to four the number of contracted players for the 2016/17 NBL season. He joins Julian Khazzouh and Jeromie Hill and current NBL Most Valuable Player, Kevin Lisch on the Kings roster.
