Boomers qualifiers in June/July in Australia - NBA players
"BOOMERS GAMES ON HOME SOIL
Basketball Australia is in the process of locking in Boomers World Cup qualifying games on home soil in June and July.
The matches will be played post the current NBA season, giving stars like Patty Mills, Joe Ingles and Matisse Thybulle a chance to return home to be part of planned celebrations to acknowledge the Boomers' historic bronze medal at this year’s Tokyo Olympics.
"It would be a great opportunity to celebrate the Boomers and give them that celebration they didn’t have due to Covid restrictions," Shriven said.
“We are in the process of trying to organise a Boomers World Cup qualifying window here against China and Japan.
“That will be around the June/July period, which would be amazing because it will be the NBA off-season, and almost a year on from the bronze medal.”"
