Who Made the Cut for the Australian Boomers' 2024 Paris Olympics Squad?

The Australian Boomers revealed their final squad for the 2024 Paris Olympics, with Matisse Thybulle left off the roster. However, Duop Reath from the Portland Trail Blazers will be heading to France to represent the Boomers and strive for gold.

According to sources, Thybulle was not included in the wing rotation for the team, which led to his exclusion from the Olympics squad. Instead, selectors opted for other players like Dyson Daniels, Matthew Dellavedova, Dante Exum, and Josh Green to handle defensive wing assignments.

The decision faced mixed reactions, with Boomers coach Brian Goorjian acknowledging that not everyone may be pleased with the choices made in the squad selection.

Thybulle, who was part of the Boomers' bronze medal win at the 2021 Tokyo Olympics, had an impactful season with the Portland Trail Blazers, showcasing his defensive prowess as a wing player.

Despite being born in the US, Thybulle moved to Australia at a young age before returning to the US, where he excelled in the basketball scene and earned a spot in the NBA.

As the Boomers gear up for the Paris Olympics, the team composition highlights the tough decisions that come with selecting a squad for such a prestigious tournament. The competition will surely be fierce, and each player will play a crucial role in the team's success on the international stage.
