Perth re-signs Clint Steindl for two years


The Perth Wildcats have re-signed guard Clint Steindl for two more seasons, meaning the sharp-shooter will call Perth home until at least 2021.

Steindl joined the Wildcats in 2017 and became a championship player for the first time this year.

The 30-year-old is thrilled to be remaining in Perth.

“I’m happy, excited and relieved to have signed back here. I love it here and I get another two years to build on what we’ve done here so far,” he said.

“You win a championship; you want to stick around with the group that you have. They’re some of the best teammates I’ve ever had in my career and that was a big plus side, to be coming back to spend another two years with these guys.”

Steindl believes consistency in the playing roster has been a big reason for the Wildcats long-term success.

“When you can keep a core group together for so long, it makes the process of bringing new guys in that much easier. It gets them up to speed, and not just on the court, but with the relationships off it,” he said.

“With the guys we’ve had here, they’ve shown it works.”

Clint Steindl captured the shooting form he’s known for in 2018/19, hitting 57 three-pointers at over 40 per cent.

His season high of 19 points came in the 25 January win over Adelaide.

Overall, he averaged 6.9 points in 13.9 minutes per game, while also knocking down a staggering 96 per cent of his foul shots.

Clint Steindl joins fellow championship teammates Bryce Cotton, Nick Kay, Mitch Norton, Rhys Vague, Jesse Wagstaff and captain Damian Martin as signed players on the 2019/20 Perth Wildcats roster.
