Melbourne United add Tall Blacks big man Alex Pledger to front court

Recommended Posts

MELBOURNE United has signed four-time NBL champion Alex Pledger for the 2018-19 season.

Pledger, 31, averaged six points and five rebounds last season at New Zealand Breakers, playing about 15 minutes off the bench.

The 213cm Tall Blacks international played under United coach Dean Vickerman during his stint at the Breakers.

“Everybody has a really true centre on their team in the league this year and he’s a true 7-footer,” Vickerman said.

“He’s a high-level defender, has a solid post game and certainly creates a presence on the offensive boards as well.

“He’s been around this game long enough now that he certainly adds a lot of championship experience to this group.”

Pledger will bolster a depleted United front court following the departures of Tai Wesley and Majok Majok to New Zealand.

Pledger could form a formidable partnership in the paint with United hopeful of retaining NBL rebounding machine Josh Boone next season.

The no-frills big man boasts nine years in the league and most recently helped New Zealand clinch a bronze medal at the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games.

“I’m kind of an old-school big guy who likes to mix it up in the paint and do most of my work around the basket,” Pledger said.

“I’m not one of the guys who’ll be out there shooting threes, but I’ll be in there doing the dirty work inside at both ends of the court.”

Pledger hopes the move to Melbourne will reinvigorate his career and provide a platform for him to further enhance his leadership qualities.

“I’m not a spring chicken anymore, I’ve got some miles on my legs and played in some big games so bringing that experience to hopefully make a run for back-to-back championships for Melbourne United is a challenge I’m really excited about,” Pledger said.

Melbourne has four rosters spots left to fill, including its three imports.

Pledger joins United captain Chris Goulding, Pete Hooley, Toni Smith-Milner, David Barlow, Craig Moller and Daniel Trist as contracted players for the 2018-19 NBL season.
