Boomers World Cup squad named

Ben Simmons headlines Australia's FIBA World Cup squad announced by Basketball Australia on Thursday.

Simmons along with Joe Ingles, Patty Mills, Matthew Dellavedova and Aron Baynes are all part of the star studded extended squad.

Nine NBA players have been included with Andrew Bogut, Jonah Bolden, Deng Adel and Mitch Creek round out the list.

It is arguable the strongest squad the Boomers have ever put together as Australia chase a maiden international medal in China. 

Boomers squad: Deng Adel, Aron Baynes, Todd Blanchfield, Andrew Bogut, Jonah Bolden, Mitch Creek, Matthew Dellavedova, Cameron Gliddon, Chris Goulding, Joe Ingles, Nicholas Kay, Jock Landale, Mitch McCarron, Patty Mills, Brock Motum, Ben Simmons, Nathan Sobey.
