ADELAIDE has continued its love affair with basketballers, signing two Category B, non-registered rookies.

Sturt Sabres guard Tim Klaosen and Tasmanian giant Jack Osborn have been listed on the club's rookie list after being recommended by MVP Sports player agent Paul Bell.

They join former high-quality basketballers Josh Jenkins, Ricky Henderson and Ben Dowdell at Adelaide.

Klaosen, 196cm, and Osborn, 205cm, are eligible to be listed as rookies as they have not been registered with or played in an Australian Football competition in the past three years.

Both are 22 years old.

Crows list manager David Noble said the duo would add to the ongoing development and progression of the club's list.

"The club is excited about the opportunity to develop these talented athletes through the Category B rookie list avenue,'' said Noble, whose club stands to lose national draft picks over the Kurt Tippett saga.

"Both players are mature age and bring with them great attitude and work ethic. They will need to work hard to develop their football skills but they have some exceptional athletic abilities.

"They are both competitive types who have played football at junior levels, so we believe we can work with them and develop them as they both clearly understand the hard work and commitment required to transform into AFL players.''

While Klaosen is well known in local basketball circles, Osborn returned home to Hobart this year after completing a four-year stint in the American College system with Adams State.
