The Illawarra Hawks have secured the signature of American forward George King for NBL23.
Originally drafted to the NBA by the Phoenix Suns, King boasts significant experience in the G-League, with averages of 13.5 points, 6.7 rebounds and 2.8 assists in his most recent season at the Agua Caliente Clippers.
He has also played at Dolomiti Trento in the EuroCup, as well as Enea Zastal BC Zielona in the Polish League and VTB League.
Illawarra coach Jacob Jackomas said the club was pleased to lock in its second import.
“We’re excited to have someone with King’s international experience join our young core group,” Jackomas told the team’s website.
“He gives us elite shooting and defending on the perimeter and we believe he will complement the other guys on the team.”

King joins Tyler Harvey, Sam Froling, Daniel Grida, Alex Mudronja, Akoldah Gak, Wani Swaka Lo Buluk, Deng Deng, Lachlan Dent and Mangok Mathiang on the Illawarra Hawks’ 2022/23 roster.

His addition will go a long way towards filling the void left by the departing Duop Reath, Antonius Cleveland and Xavier Rathan-Mayes.
