Dillon Stith has spent the last two months suiting up for Melbourne United in the NBL, including a stint in the USA taking on the NBA’s LA Clippers and Sacramento Kings. Fresh off a double header against the South East Melbourne Phoenix and Sydney Kings, Dillon has committed to our Knox Raiders.
Stith’s resume in Australia is stacked. Multiple Big V Championship Men MVP’s and a Big V Premiership last season with McKinnon sit at the top of the list. The versatile forward has been a star wherever he’s played.
“I decided to become a Raider after meeting with David Ingham and Dom Linossier. I have a continued friendship with DMac over the past couple years as well. Just hearing their passion for what they want to continue to build at Knox was too compelling,” Said Stith. “Already being a storied program, I’m looking forward to creating a chapter in the powerhouse club.”
Dillon isn’t just interested in playing, he’s hoping to grow the program and association as a whole with work both on and off the court.
“My expectations for myself are to continue to grow as a leader and help Dom create a winning culture. that starts with our Youth League and extends into our seniors,” continued Dillon. “Putting in the work and creating the right habits that down the road will bring successes to Knox Basketball Association.”
Knox Basketball’s Director of Basketball Operations David Ingham is thrilled with the signing.
“Everyone knows that Dillon is a brilliant player on the court, but what he will provide around the association off the floor is just as important,” said Ingham. “It’s an exciting signing for our club to make.”
