Biography

The Thunder from Down Under, Josh Giddey is set to make his long-awaited major tournament debut for the Boomers at the 2023 FIBA World Cup.

The son of Melbourne Tigers legend Warrick Giddey burst on to the scene in 2020-21 with eye catching NBL performances for the Adelaide 36ers and was a runaway winner for rookie of the year.

Selected with the sixth pick in the 2021 draft, the Melbourne product made his NBA debut for Oklahoma City Thunder in the season-opener against Joe Ingles’ Utah Jazz, becoming the youngest Aussie to play in the league.

In 2022, at 19 years and 84 days old, Giddey would create more history as the youngest player in NBA history to record a triple-double.

The talented point guard averaged 16.6 points, 7.9 rebounds and 6.2 assists per game in the last NBA season.

In January 2023, Giddey joined an elite club including Luka Doncic, Ben Simmons and Grant Hill as the only players to record 1000 points, 700 rebounds and 500 assists in their first 100 NBA games.
