An extended Australian Boomers squad has been named ahead of the 2023 FIBA World Cup, set to begin at the end of August across three Asian countries.
The 18-man squad features 10 of Australia’s 11 NBA players — Ben Simmons was not included, though there’s the potential for him to be added ahead of the selection camp — along with some of the country’s best NBL and Europe-based talent.
Patty Mills, Joe Ingles, Matthew Dellavedova, Danté Exum, Chris Goulding, Josh Green, Nick Kay, Jock Landale, Duop Reath, and Matisse Thybulle, all of whom were members of Australia’s bronze medal-winning team at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, headline the squad selected by head coach Brian Goorjian.
Josh Giddey and Dyson Daniels, both impact players in the NBA and among Australia’s best young talent, were named in the squad.
