Kilsyth junior Kyle Adnam has been included in the Australian Boomers squad ahead of the fifth window of the FIBA World Cup qualifiers.
Adnam’s inclusion in the Boomers squad is another step forward in what has been a remarkable 14 months for the electrifying guard. The Mount Evelyn Meteors junior made his international debut with Australia at the University Games in August 2017, before taking the floor against the Oklahoma City Thunder with Melbourne United in an NBA/NBL preseason showdown. Adnam later helped United win the 2018 NBL Championship, with his play earning him a invite to a Dallas Mavericks offseason minicamp.
After dominating the New Zealand National Basketball League during the offseason – where he was named team MVP of the Nelson Giants – Adnam secured a contract with the Sydney Kings for the current NBL season. Adnam and co. battled the NBA’s Los Angeles Clippers down to the wire in late September in another NBA/NBL preseason matchup, and the Kings backup point guard has produced solid numbers to tip-off the NBL regular season, helping Sydney move into second place in the league standings after four games.
Adnam now takes aim at a place on the Boomers roster, but he’ll need to out-perform some of the nation’s best guards to get there. The Boomers are set to name their team in mid-November ahead of a pair of games against Iran (November 30) and Qatar (December 3) in Melbourne.
