American swingman DJ Kennedy has filled the last remaining spot on the Melbourne United roster for the ucpoming NBL season.
Coach Dean Vickerman said the 195cm shooting guard/forward had been on United's radar for some time.
"He was certainly on our list last year when we were looking and ended up with Casey Prather - we watched some games of Casey in Germany and DJ was in that same league," Vickerman said.
"He's been a high-level European guy since he came out of college and a guy that we thought has all the tools to fit the job description.
"We looked at a lot of different guys and we took our time after NBA Summer League just to see what shaped out and from our research last year of DJ we got the opportunity.
"(United's) Josh Boone knows him well and that was a character check for us that he ticked the boxes there."
Kennedy, 28, last played for Pinar Karsiyaka in the 2017-18 Turkish Super League season, averaging 15.7 points, 6.5 rebounds and 5.1 assists per game.
