Whittington joins Kings

The Sydney Kings have confirmed the signing of NBA D-League Miami Heat player Greg Whittington as their second import. The 23 year caught the Kings attention while leading the Sioux Falls Skyforce to a championship this past season when Managing Director Jeff Van Groningen watched him prior to joining the Kings himself. Whittington averaged 14 points, 8 rebounds, 3 assists, 2 steals and 1 block per game during his time with the Sioux Falls Skyforce and was named on the All-rookie team. He joined the Kings for a pre-season stint a few weeks ago, at which time the parties started talking seriously about the 2016-17 NBL season. Van Groningen, who attended Whittington’s Kings workouts was happy with what he saw. “He impressed with his abilities on the court as well as his professionalism and demeanour off it. New Head Coach Andrew Gaze is excited by what Greg will bring to the club. Standing 6’9, or 205cm, Whittington’s size and athleticism give the club great depth – he’s expected to spend time at the small and power forward spots. “I’m really happy that we managed to sign Greg. He’s a versatile player, and will help us in a number areas. I’m looking forward to him joining our program later this month.” Whittington’s signing follows the announcement of fellow import Michael Bryson last week. The Kings earlier recruited NBL MVP and current Olympian Kevin Lisch as well as Boomer stalwarts Brad Newley and Aleks Maric.
