The training camp will be held from 26-30 July at the Basketball Australia National Centre of Excellence at the AIS in Canberra.Really only have three bigs and Simmons is a SF/PF, so you could say it's just Andersen and Jawai?
The Boomers will tip-off preparations for the 2013 FIBA Oceania Championships with a larger training camp to be held in Canberra at the start of August.
What's the read on this roster? No point testing the Knights and Worthingtons this time around because the big spots will fall to Bogut, Baynes and so on when things get real?
If that's the case, and this is blooding/testing a few college kids, I like that.
Shows that Jawai is in the picture and that Lemanis is looking to start a relationship with him as a potential frontcourt x-factor.
Only current NBL player in the squad is a 36er.
