Waxy to the Sixers

The Adelaide 36ers have officially signed Melbourne swingman Lucas Walker for the 2015/16 NBL season. Last season "Waxy" averaged 7.5 points at 50 per cent, 5.1 rebounds and 1.0 assists coming off the bench for Melbourne United. Mostly cast as a small forward and known for his athletic dunks and hassling defence, the 30-year old will be an asset to the Sixers: “For us he’ll definitely play multiple positions and I’ll use him the way I did Sam Mackinnon guarding one through five," said head coach Joey Wright, referring to his Championship-winning season with the Brisbane Bullets. "He’ll play some ‘point forward’ for us and pull opposition bigs away from the rim." The Tasmanian played for the St. Mary's Gaels in college and returned to Australia to play for the Melbourne Tigers. He quick became a fan favourite and was runner-up NBL Rookie of the Year in the 2010/11 season, and has since tallied 131 NBL games. "He's a great energy guy and a great team mate," said Wright. "We look forward to him joining us after he concludes his SEABL commitments with Dandenong.”
