Simmons in Boomers team

Ben Simmons, Andrew Bogut, Patty Mills and Aron Baynes are among the National Basketball Association players picked in an extended Australia squad to prepare for the FIBA World Cup. Boomers coach Andrej Lemanis announced a 17-man squad yesterday for warmup games against the US and Canada in August. Simmons, who missed Australia’s run to the semifinals at the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, confirmed his availability for the World Cup after his Philadelphia 76ers were knocked out of the Eastern Conference semifinals last week on Kawhi Leonard’s Game 7-ending buzzer-beater for Toronto. Matthew Dellavedova, Joe Ingles, Jonah Bolden and Deng Adel were also included in Australia’s squad, but Dante Exum and Thon Maker were unavailable for selection. The squad will be trimmed to 12 players before leaving for China for the August 31-September 15 World Cup, where the Boomers are in Group H with Canada, Senegal and Lithuania.
