Just days after spearheading the Sydney Kings to their second straight NBL championship, wing Angus Glover will now turn his focus to more silverware in the off-season.

This comes as the Wollongong junior announced he would be signing with the Eltham Wildcats for the 2023 NBL1 South season.

"I signed with Eltham because they really care for their community and their junior pathways to the NBL1," Glover said.

"I also have a fair few mates there, who I’ve played with or against in the past either from junior basketball or NBL.

"The other big contributing factor is the relationship I’ve built with Craig Stratford over the phone since being interested in coming to play."

This will mark the first off-season since 2019 (with the Centre of Excellence) the 24-year-old will have hit the hardwood after COVID-19 ruined his chances of linking up with the Wildcats in 2020.

Then in 2022, he was slated to play NBL1 East with Sutherland but decided to use the time to rest his body.

"Last year I was meant to play for Sutherland but the bone in my knee was playing up a bit," he said.

"This year,  my body is feeling great - we have the best medical staff in Sydney that I’ll talk to on a regular basis while in Eltham."

During his time in Victoria, Glover will team up South East Melbourne's Owen Foxwell and former Melbourne United big man Callum Dalton - which makes the Wildcats one of the stronger teams in NBL1 South.

"I want to win the NBL1 south and win the national championship too," Glover said.

"I think we have the group that can go deep in the finals if we play how I know we can play as a group.

"Personally, I just want to continue to develop my game and take a leap this off-season and put it all out there in NBL next year.

"[To do that] I'll continually work on all parts of my game, especially my playmaking and leadership skills.

"We have a really young group so I want to help the guys in any way I can and help us achieve our goals as a team."

Glover and his Wildcats open their campaign on Saturday, April 1 against Diamond Valley from 8pm AEDT.
