The Bandits will showcase their new imports this weekend when they hit the road for round one of the inaugural NBL1 season.
Torren Jones and Ken-Jah Bosley are set to play a crucial role in the sides first round clash against the Waverley Falcons on Sunday.
Bosley will be utilised as point-guard, while big-man Jones' height will be invaluable.
Bandits coach Brad Chalmers said after a long pre-season, the US duo are keen to get stuck into games.
"Whenever you recruit your imports they're really the back bone of your group," Chalmers said.
"Hopefully they can have some good starts to the year and give us that fire power that we bring them in for.
"They've both settled in nicely and are keen to get into games.
"We'll be trying to start strong and put our best foot forward, particularly at the start of the season when everyone is trying to get a feel for one and other."
The Bandits take to the court this season with a new roster at their disposal.
Guard Deba George will be back on the court, while New Zealand born Mitchell Newton will be absent for the side due to a knee injury.
This season will also be about the development of the Bandits local young guns as they hone their skills.
"We're not the only group with new rosters so certainly the first few rounds will be interesting to see where everyone is with the pecking order," Chalmers said.
"Hopefully we're one of those groups that can click pretty quickly.
"For a few of our locals, it will be a big season.
"There's a couple in the group that definitely have the potential to keep playing at this level for a number of years, so it's about them continuing to work hard.
"The expectation is to be competitive throughout the course of the year and position ourselves with an opportunity to hopefully make the play-offs, and then anything goes from there.
"Everyone's just really excited to get out on the court and start playing meaningful games."
The Bandits will be gifted their first home game in round two against the Ringwood Hawks.
That will be followed by another three home games for the Bandits to cap off the first five rounds.
"Kicking off the home season is always exciting," Chalmers said.
