Nick Kay scored seven points after only 15 minutes of court time in the Perth Wildcats’ 97-84 away loss to the Adelaide 36ers.
The Tamworth export had three rebounds and one assist.
Despite another loss, Perth coach Trevor Gleeson emphatically ruled a line through pulling the trigger on signing a third import.
No.1 import Bryce Cotton, the NBL's leading scorer, was tagged all over the court by the Sixers’ rotation of guards and held to a season-low 10 points on Thursday night, while fellow American Terrico White impressed with a game-high 24 points.
The loss, which was the out-of-form Wildcats’ seventh from their past eight matches, hasn’t changed Gleeson's mind on signing a third American to help Cotton and White.
“No, we've already discussed that,” was Gleeson's short response.
Perth captain Damian Martin said the playing group will struggle to sleep after the 36ers loss.
