Patty Mills and five more NBA players are on the Olympic men’s basketball roster for Australia, which eyes its first medal in the event in Tokyo. Mills, a 32-year-old guard going to his fourth consecutive Olympics, is joined by fellow NBAers Joe Ingles, Aron Baynes, Dante Exum, Matthew Dellavedova and Josh Green.
Green’s rookie season was indeed a whirlwind of epic proportions. The Sydney, Australia native was drafted on Nov. 18 – a draft conducted virtually for the first time due to the coronavirus pandemic. From there, Green started training camp with his new teammates on Dec. 6. And his first of three preseason games occurred on Dec. 12 in Milwaukee against reigning NBA two-time Most Valuable Player, Giannis Antetokounmpo and the powerful Bucks. “I think this whole year, the draft class, it was tough coming into training camp for three days and then having your first preseason game against Giannis,” Green said. “So I think overall it was a tough year, but I wouldn’t want to have it any other way.”
Before next season comes, Green will be representing Australia at the Olympics in Tokyo starting on July 23. That’ll give him a chance to work alongside NBA players such as Ben Simmons, Joe Ingles and Patty Mills. “Everything is kind of just getting thrown at me now, but my intentions will be to play for Australia,” Green said. “It’s always been a dream of mine as a kid. And also just as far from a development standpoint, just being able to get in games and just feel more comfortable on the court and be around guys like Ben, Joe Ingles Patty Mills and guys like that who have really helped me out and to just grow as a player. I’m really looking forward to it and just looking forward to the offseason in general.”
