Revised Boomers Squad Named for 2024 Campaign

A stacked squad of Australian firepower will report to camp in June to prepare for a massive international schedule.

Basketball Australia is today announcing a revised 17-player Boomers squad that will attend training camp in preparation for the Paris 2024 Olympics.  

A mix of familiar faces and an exciting wave of young talent will report to camp in late June and Head Coach Brian Goorjian is emphasising the importance of getting the vibe right.
“The standard of the tournament is going to be at an all-time high and we’re excited with the group that we’ve put together,” said Goorjian.  

“It’s a special group and an exciting time for basketball and the country. We will get the guys together and get the energy right.”

Bronze medal heroes Patty Mills, Joe Ingles, Matthew Dellavedova, Nick Kay and Chris Goulding are in the revised squad and will have the opportunity to contribute to a new-look Boomers set. 
Also named is the next wave, Oklahoma City Thunder star Josh Giddey and Dallas Maverick’s Dante Exum and Josh Green - who are currently locked in a battle against each other in the NBA Playoffs.  

A healthy Jock Landale returns and will add leadership and physicality to a front court alongside Duop Reath, Jack White and Xavier Cooks.

Dyson Daniels and Matisse Thybulle will provide versatility, length and athleticism to the wing position. Daniels (New Orleans Pelicans) and Thybulle (Portland Trailblazers) were given a greater license to shoot in the NBA this season.

Tasmania JackJumpers duo Will Magnay and Jack McVeigh will be reporting for Boomers camp. Magnay brings physical defensive strength whilst McVeigh is a shooter with range. DJ Vasiljevic from the Adelaide 36ers has also been included after starring in the NBL and FIBA 2025 Asia Cup Qualifiers in early 2024.
“The level of talent that the country is producing is at a new level. We’ve got guys competing against the best in leagues around the world and the NBL continues to advance as a world class level for Australian talent,” said Goorjian.

“We won’t over-complicate things here. We’ve got an exciting group of players that all present unique strengths and advantages. Our goal is to maximise that.”

The Boomers kick off the run with all players reporting to camp in late June before the first hit out in the Ford BALLIN’24 series in Melbourne against China from 2 – 5 July. 
From there, the final 12 will be selected and travel to Abu Dhabi for the USA Basketball Showcase with games against the USA on 15 July and Serbia on 16 July.
