Simmons says he's ready to play for Australia's Boomers

SYDNEY (AP) Ben Simmons is set to play for Australia at the FIBA World Cup after confirming in an online video "I'm going to be a Boomer" for upcoming events.

Simmons' NBA season ended when his Philadelphia 76ers were knocked out of the Eastern Conference semifinals on Kawhi Leonard's Game 7-ending buzzer-beater for Toronto.

The NBA All-Star told his fans to stay tuned about upcoming events in the video he posted on Twitter but he later confirmed on Weibo, the Chinese social media channel, that he was "looking forward to representing my country Australia" in the World Cup. He's likely to join the likes of Patty Mills, Andrew Bogut and Matthew Dellavedova in Australia's squad for the World Cup, which starts Aug. 31 in China.
