[ad_1]

Olympic medallist and Aussie veteran Matthew Dellavedova is one of two cuts as the Boomers further narrow down their FIBA World Cup squad.

The 32-year-old NBA champion, who captained the side during the qualifying window last June, misses out along with NZ Breakers star Will McDowell-White.

The squad has now been cut down to 13 players, with another set to be cut after three warm-up games in Melbourne against Venezuela, Brazil and South Sudan across August 14-17.

Jock Landale remains in the squad despite an ankle injury which will likely see him miss the warm-up games.

However he’s expected to make a full recovery and feature in the squad that heads to Okinawa, Japan for the World Cup.

The Boomers just completed a camp in Cairns which included a game against the University of Houston.

Australia will face Germany, Finland and co-hosts Japan in the group stage beginning August 25.
