NBL: Illawarra Hawks rookie Emmett Naar expecting learning experience and freedom in first pro season


EMMETT Naar may be the favourite to win the NBL’s Rookie of the Year award, and he has the advantage of having his first season under the tutelage of an MVP.

Cedric Jackson’s return to the NBL — joining Rob Beveridge’s Illawarra Hawks — is as much a coup for the team’s head coach and fanbase, as it is for the budding Naar, who’s one of the country’s most promising young point guards.

Naar, 24, has been fortunate to pick the brain of Jackson, as the Sydney-native enters the first season of his professional career.

“He’s a former MVP, led the league in assists. He just knows how to play,” Naar told foxsports.com.au.
