2024 Edmonton Stingers Team Preview

Welcome back to part four of my ten part series previewing every single team for the 2024 CEBL season. This is a daily series where I will choose to preview one of the 10 teams in the league, which will lead up to my complete overview and predictions piece! These articles will go over who is on each of the rosters, followed by some main headlines to lookout for, and ending off with a little sneak peak at my prediction for that teams finish.


In the fourth edition of this series, we are going to take a look at a team that might be the king of the Western Conference this summer, the Edmonton Stingers. Having brought back many of the most important pieces from 2023, they have added so much more quality around those others. They definitely could be the team to beat in 2024.

Reloaded and Ready To Go

Throughout this 2024 offseason, I have been more and more impressed by what the Stingers have been able to do with their roster construction. Bringing back Clarke, Hornsby, Miller and McNeilly, all while adding in Nuga, Krikke, Evans (and potentially Chatman) makes this Edmonton roster one of the best and deepest in the CEBL. I do wonder how a bunch of these guys do mesh, as coach Jordan Baker's system is one of "by committee" and he now will have the task of getting the ball in many of these players hands on offence. There may be some adjustments on either end, but once they get it sorted, watch out.


Player To Watch: Brody Clarke

While this new look Stingers roster has a couple guys that are going to have to get used to this new system, Clarke is not one of them. The prototypical modern big that has the size and athleticism to guard multiple positions, rebound well, can put the ball on the floor if needed and scores at all three levels. He is the main guy here in Edmonton and will always lead the charge whenever the Stingers take the floor. Watch for him to be a factor in almost every game this summer.


2024’s Top Dog

For me, this is the team to beat in 2024. Between them and the Sea Bears, there will be a battle at the top of the Western Conference. While both teams are deep and rich with talent, Edmonton may have the edge currently just based on how I think this team should gel quite quickly, and their talent level might be just a bit higher than Winnipeg’s. But it will definitely be a two horse race this summer, and I think the Stingers might just pull ahead of the rest.
