I'm a bit suspicious about how the Boomers social media platforms have handled the camp. There's been a slow unveiling of players and they're carefully selected who is shown and who isn't. You can tell by the fact that the first photos only show selected players, and then the group photo on showed those players, then you have an unveiling of another player, and another. It seems to me like they're keeping exactly who is there under wraps.

This is solidified by a comment their Facebook made in reply to me:

"due to travel schedules it isnt possible to have everyone arrive at the same time. And looks can be deceiving (two big eye emojis). "

So some people are there who they haven't shown us. Why haven't they shown us and what is this leading to? Why are the photos so carefully curated and so gradual in release?

We might be heading towards a big surprise. Not sure. Recent evidence with Twitter follows may suggest otherwise, but I find this to be interesting.

Maybe Simmons is at camp maybe he's not. The media circus since Philly being knocked out has been brutal. I don’t think he would be on any socials atm as him manager would be monitoring due the trolls. If he was to rock up camp he probably would asked it to be low key. Only source he’s not going is from one tweet stating he unlikely to play in the Olympics. That source never quoted where it came from either.

Conversely if he unfollowed the Boomers (assuming he followed them in the first place) and took Aussie flag down from his profile, what might that mean?

Could mean doesnt want there to be too much talk around the Boomers or what he is or isn't doing. Or on the other hand, could be a cold, hard denial of probably ever playing for the Boomers.

Given his close relationship with Goorjian I cant imagine that it is the latter. But if it is it sends a very strong message about his intention to ever play for his country.

I don't see how a deal with four and twenty pies can demand he plays at the Olympics, and if it did it certainly wouldn't supersede his deal with the 76ers and their want to shoot a billion freethrows in the off-season.

His lack of confirmation is the elephant in the room right now. If he just passes over the Olympics without publicly addressing it in some way, that is NOT going to go over very well with a lot of people. It may well burn his bridges with the Boomers and Australian public, if of course he cares about such things.

Simmons was seen in London in the past 24 hours. If he he's playing, it is likely him and Thybulle will join the team in Vegas.

Given his season had just finished I would expect he is allowed son down time. It also depends if he makes the second camp in Vegas prior the exhibition games.

That's Ben's version of "shooting his shot" and "working on his game" in the off-season. I doubt we see any noticeable improvement on the court, though, next season. He has all the physical skills but none of the mental. Him being in London doesn't exactly bode well for his Boomers chances but he could always turn up to the second camp. I am just surprised that no definitive news has leaked either way. It hasn't progressed beyond "doubtful" and no other comment has been made in over a week now.

Imo he'll play, Goorj would want to know by now. Simmons problem that it all came to easy, never had to worry about team selections, making teams, upsetting anyone. Very hard to get work ethics when all handed to you. Exum had more talent, just so unlucky with injuries.

I am wondering, is Simmons non-commitment him telling BA "sorry I havent made a decision yet" or is it Ben flat out not communicating with them at all?

BA have just sent out some video footage of June 27 training to media contacts. Looking through now. Spotted Cooks, Exum, Ingles, Delly so far. Green and Delly driving and shooting FT jumpers over Rillie. Glimpse of a couple of others that are hard to identify - one might've been Caporn.
