Shotguns and Clay Targets: The Real Reason Cadee Signed with Brisbane

There are a number of reasons why a player picks a team to sign for. It could be positional fit, lifestyle, money, family and a slew of other reasons.

Shotguns and clay targets usually don’t come into the equation though – unless you’re Jason Cadee.

Speaking on the Gibbo Goes One on One Podcast driven by MG, Cadee has opened up on how a shooting session on Anthony Petrie’s farm led to him signing with the Brisbane Bullets in 2018.

“We go to Petrie’s farm which I do a couple of times a year,” Cadee said.

“You (Adam Gibson) came with us that time, we drove from the Gold Coast. We are out shooting clay targets and aren’t very good at it at all.

“Damo, Petrie’s brother, was also there. We are shooting clay targets and doing best of five. Damo gets four or five, Petrie gets three or four, I got two and you (Gibson) were not even close.

“Then Petrie goes, if Gibbo hits one out of two, you (Cadee) have to sign with the Bullets. It changed because originally it was one out of two and I was like, two out of three, thinking that you wouldn’t and I would still have to make a decision.

“We all shook on it, I had to shake everyone’s hand.

“You get it, yell out pull, Petrie pulls it and whack, clay down. Righto, that was your first one, you were zero for whatever before then. Alright line it up, next one, pull, whack, nails it. Two of two and now I’m a Brisbane Bullet.”

Cadee has starred in Brisbane since joining the club, winning the league’s Best Sixth Man award in NBL20.
