Which NBL players have pushed their Boomers bids
So out of all NBL players this year, which ones do you think are shoring themselves up for a tilt at the world cup next year?
I think we need to look at our biggest present weakness - bigmen. I think duop Reath and JLA immediately walk into contention behind Landale - with a lack of big bodies you'd hope Baynes is playing good basketball by then.
Xavier Cooks, Jack White and Keanu Pinder are our best power forwards with Cooks probably having the edge given his versatility - one of these three will make it.
Mitch Creek as a small forward but facing tough competition with Ingles, Thybulle already obvious locks and the possibility of Daniels playing multiple positions and Green.
At the guard, usual suspects are Delly and Goulding but beyond that, Vaselijivic looks like a player for the future, if not 2023.
Possibly 2023 line up
Giddey/Exum / Delly?
Ingles/Thybulle/ Cooks? Green?
Landale/Baynes?/ Reath/ JLA?
Less likely: Delly, Goulding, DJ, Creek, Pinder, White
