Cam Gliddon signs two year deal with South East Melbourne Phoenix

Boomers guard Cam Gliddon has signed a two-year deal with the South East Melbourne Phoenix, the team revealed on Thursday.

The 30-year-old, who has played for Cairns and most recently Brisbane in the NBL, formed part of the Boomers quad which finished fourth at the 2019 FIBA World Cup last year.

In a statement released by the Phoenix, Gliddon said he couldn't wait to get to work with the Victorian-based NBL franchise.

"I'm really excited. When the team reached out and said they were interested, I was really happy," Gliddon said.

"I really liked what the Phoenix did last year. Everything I heard from Gibbo (Adam Gibson) and Kyle Adnam and Dane Pineau while I was at the Boomers was positive.

"I was really excited that they showed interest in me, and that the deal got done and I'm down here."

Meanwhile, Phoenix CEO Tommy Greer described Gliddon as the "hottest free agent", and said the team was "delighted" to add another Boomer to the squad.

"We're super excited to welcome Cam to the Heartland," Greer said in a statement.

"Signing the hottest free agent on the market is a significant coup for our club and an exciting prospect for our fans ahead of our second season.

"Anyone who has represented Australia at a World Cup is an elite talent and a huge addition to an NBL side. Cam will immediately make us stronger on both ends of the court and bring great basketball IQ and experience to our locker room."
