Patty Mills confirmed for Boomers Farewell Series

Australian NBA star Patty Mills has confirmed he is available to play for the Boomers in The Farewell Series in Victoria in June.

The Australian Boomers men’s national basketball team have received a massive boost with Basketball Australia (BA) today confirming that NBA star Patty Mills will be available to play in the Boomers three-match series against Greece in Victoria later this month, known as The Farewell Series: Basketball’s Road to London.

Mills has only recently completed his NBA playoff commitments with the San Antonio Spurs but has confirmed to BA that he will join the team in time for their training camp in Melbourne prior to The Farewell Series.

Mills has also made himself available for selection for the Boomers team to play Greece in The Farewell Series, which will be the last chance for the Australian public to see the Boomers play live before they head to Europe for their London campaign.

The Farewell Series will commence with a double-header with the Jayco Australian Opals at Melbourne’s Hisense Arena on 24 June.  The Boomers will also play Greece at the State Basketball Centre in Knox on 25 June and the Geelong Arena on 27 June.

Mills was a part of the San Antonio Spurs team that reached the NBA’s Western Conference Finals recently.  After signing with the American club mid-season, he appeared in 16 games for the Spurs, averaging 10.3 points.  In the final game of the regular season he exploded for 34 points and 12 assists against the Golden State Warriors, which set a new mark for the highest score ever by an Australian in the NBA.
Tickets are now on sale for all Australian Boomers and Jayco Australian Opals games of The Farewell Series.
