The 2015 State Basketball League season commences in just over three weeks, so here is a look at some of the changes that each club has made heading into the new campaign.

Cockburn Cougars
The Cougars have lost a lot of home grown Cockburn talent over the offseason with Rhys Vague (East Perth), Damien Scott (Willetton), Seva Chan and Jaarod Holmes (both Kalamunda) all leaving to join other clubs. With stalwart forward Gavin Field sticking around and Sheldon McIntyre returning after a two-year absence, the Cougars have signed swingman Najee Lane as an import for the 2015 season.

East Perth Eagles
After winning the 2014 SBL championship, the Eagles made it a priority to keep the team's core together with the return of captain Drew Williamson, Perth Wildcats players Tom Jervis and Sunday Dech, and veteran Joe-Alan Tupaea. In addition, the Eagles have nabbed former Ballarat Miner and current Perth Wildcats development player Anthony Fisher for the 2015 season (UPDATE: Fisher was released in the week leading up to the season opener), along with another Wildcats development player in Rhys Vague and Italian import forward Stefano Simeoli. Championship winning head coach Adam Forde also recommitted to the club in December.

Geraldton Buccaneers
The disappointment of losing the 2014 Grand Final has spurned the Buccaneers to make some adjustments and re-tool as they signed former Buc Daniel Thomas from the Magic and replaced 2014 import Odartey Blankson with 6'8" forward Quincy Hankins-Cole. The Buccaneers have kept import Carter Cook and former Melbourne Tiger Bennie Lewis, while also re-signing Aaron Ralph, Matthew Wundenberg and Luke Wrensted.

Goldfields Giants
The Giants look to improve on two disappointing seasons in a row as they won just 10 games over the 2013 and 2014 seasons. To do this, the Giants have signed two quality imports in 6'8" forward Jacob Holmen and 6'5" swingman Jay Bowie, while also bringing back club legend Shamus Ballantyne and signing former Melbourne Tiger Edin Zunic. The club has also brought back Russell Hurst and Lordan Franich, and signed a new head coach in former Giant Michael Haney.

Joondalup Wolves
Looking to return to the finals in 2015, the Wolves signed 2011 championship winning head coach Ben Ettridge to lead them once again. The Wolves' core group of Seb Salinas, Trian Iliadis and Robert Huntington are all returning, while the club has signed former Sun Joel Questel and nabbed import big man Kevin Davis. In addition, the club also signed another former Eastern Sun in Perth Wildcats development player Louis Timms and welcome the return of former league MVP Damian Matacz who sat out the 2014 season.

Kalamunda Eastern Suns
The loss of Joel Questel and Louis Timms was big for the Suns as they have struggled badly over the past few years. With the addition of new head coach John Triscari, the Suns did manage to nab two former Cougars players in Seva Chan and Jaarod Holmes to team up alongside new and exciting imports in Lien Phillip and Kevin Anthony.

Lakeside Lightning
With club legend and all-time league rebounding leader Jarrad Prue showing no signs of slowing down, the Lightning have nabbed two new imports in forwards Luke Thomas and Jordan Swing. Set to return in 2015 are guards Brad Jackson, Jesse Dixon and Steven Butler.

Mandurah Magic
The Magic were hit by injury last season and not having a true point guard really hurt them. In response to Daniel Thomas returning to Geraldton, the Magic went ahead and signed former Redback Jarrad Jackson to help them run the point in 2015. The team has kept imports Taylor Mullenax and Paul Hafford, while also returning is Trent Gerovich and Daniel Florance.

Perry Lakes Hawks
Having missed the playoffs in 2014 for the just the second time since 1992, some changes needed to be made to the Hawks line-up in 2015. With imports Corey Easley (Willetton) and Justin Cecil (Spain) departing, two new imports were signed in guard Bryton Hobbs and centre Jason Conrad. With guard Rob Cassir in doubt for the first half of the season with his troubling knee injury, stalwarts Ben Purser and Josh Garlepp will have to step up for the Hawks in 2015, as will point guard Ben Dixon who returns to Perry Lakes after a development player stint with the Townsville Crocodiles in 2014-15.

Perth Redbacks
The return of promising head coach Nik Lackovic brought back most of the Redbacks talent also. Club stalwarts Joel Wagner and Jarrad Prior return alongside Kiwis Dennis Tawhiti and Zach Makavilitogia, and young guns Jamieson Lewis and Ashley Stephens. The recent signing of former Rockhampton Rockets championship winning import Ray Turner is a huge boost for the Redbacks following the departure of standout 2014 import Stan Okoye.

Rockingham Flames
The return of the Land brothers is huge for the Flames in 2015, as is the return of guys like Thomas Remmerswaal, Andrew Bowman, Ryan Godfrey and head coach Mark Utley. After winning the MVP award in 2014 and just recently finishing a stint in Japan, Cooper Land will be looking to lead the Flames once again alongside his brother Taylor.

South West Slammers
With player/coach Ty Harrelson recently obtaining Australian citizenship, a whole new dimension is added to the Slammers line-up. Along with Clive Weeden, he and Harrelson are both considered locals in the SBL as both are Americans with Australian citizenships. This means with no import spots being filled by either player, two more Americans can be signed, and with that, the Slammers have nabbed guard Tre Nichols and forward Brian Voelkel to fill these spots. With four import-type players, the Slammers look to have the most stacked roster in 2015, with talented Aussies Wade Hitchcock, Joshua Weir and Jordan Hickert all on board as well.

Stirling Senators
After a fine season with the Sydney Kings in 2014-15, Cody Ellis is set to return to the Senators for a second season alongside guard Austin Bruton. In addition, the club has signed import forward Kyle Lindbergh who recently graduated from Dordt College.

Willetton Tigers
Competing with the Slammers in having the most stacked roster, the Tigers have gone on a huge player signing spree for the 2015 season after the disappointment of 2014. The first lot of signings came in November with the signatures of former Hawk Corey Easley (import), former Eagle Kyle Armour, and former Cougars Damien Scott and Nic Cody. Next came the signing of the club's second import Ephrem Davis, who played for the Wolves in 2014. Returning to the club from 2014 are youngsters Andrew Black, Mitchell Clarke, Jake Burston and Daniel Casey. Also a big boost for the club was the signing of head coach Alan Black, a former championship winning coach with the Perth Wildcats and the father of guard Andrew.
