Kings secure NSW junior Angus Glover on long-term deal

3 mins read

The Sydney Kings have secured one of the NBL’s most promising young stars, adding Angus Glover to the roster on a three-year contract.

The Wollongong-born 21 year-old becomes the fourth local talent to commit to the purple and gold this season after spending the past four seasons with the Illawarra Hawks, which is another big win for NSW basketball fans.

The talented wing brings a unique combination of athleticism and skill to the Kings line-up heading into NBL21. 

“I’m very excited to be part of the Kings organisation for the next three years” Glover shared. 

“Being able to spend time with Will while I was with the Boomers at the end of last season was a big factor in my decision to join the Club. The confidence he gives to players is massive, and even five or six days with him was a big jump forward for my development”.

After an impressive 2019-20 campaign with the Hawks, Glover made his Australian Boomers debut earlier this year at the Asia Cup qualifiers in Brisbane, led by Kings Head Coach Will Weaver. 

He was one of the most impressive debutants for the Boomers averaging 12 points, 6 rebounds and 3 assists over the two games.

In 2017 Glover was the only Australian junior selected to represent his country on the World Select Team at the Nike Hoop Summit in Portland, joining the likes of Danté Exum, Ben Simmons, and Thon Maker who had been granted the same opportunity in the years before him. 

Head Coach Will Weaver is thrilled to have Angus join the Kings.  

“Angus has earned the respect of peers, coaches, and NBA scouts with his ability and attitude,” Weaver shared. 

“His professionalism has allowed him not only to overcome, but to benefit from injuries that have ended other players’ careers, and I could not be more excited to work [with] him over the next several years to help him achieve his goals”.

“It’s tremendous to add another local standout for Sydney fans to get behind. We’re looking forward to welcoming Angus and his family into our Club” Weaver said.

Glover also reunites with girlfriend and WNBL player Kiera Rowe in the Hoops Capital who joins the Brydens Sydney Uni Flames roster. The Flames were acquired by Kings ownership group TSE earlier this year, bringing the two Sydney teams back together for the first time since 2003. 

“It’s an added bonus that we’ll get to play together in the same city this season. We’re both really looking forward the opportunities that come with [playing in Sydney]” Glover shared.

Glover becomes the eighth contracted player for the Kings joining Brad Newley, Shaun Bruce, Xavier Cooks, Didi Louzada, Craig Moller, Jordan Hunter and Dejan Vasiljevic for the upcoming season.
