Tall Blacks announce 20-man squad for camp in Wellington

Head Coach Paul Henare has named a 20-man squad to participate in a four-day camp next week.

The camp will take place in Wellington on June 17-21, and Henare will then select a 12-man team to play Hong Kong and China in a few weeks.

The extended squad features a lot of familiar faces but also a nice mixture of youth as well.

Oklahoma City Thunder centre Steven Adams has made himself unavailable, as well as Corey Webster, Tai Webster, Alex Pledger and several players with American College commitments.

Shea Ili will be in Dallas participating in a mini-camp with the Mavericks, but he is expected to be back in time for the FIBA World Cup Qualifiers.

The full squad:

Guards: Jarrod Kenny, Bay Hawks; Derone Raukawa, Southland Sharks; Dion Prewster, Bay Hawks; Isaac Letoa, Dartmouth University (USA); Ethan Rusbatch, Bay Hawks; Jordan Ngatai, Wellington Saints; Tobias Cameron, Abilene Christian University (USA); Alonzo Burton, Taranaki Mountain Airs; Kruz Perrott-Hunt, Rosmini College

Forwards: Tom Abercrombie, NZ Breakers; Mika Vukona, Nelson Giants; Finn Delany, Nelson Giants; Tohi Smith-Milner, Nelson Giants; Jackson Stent, Houston Baptist University USA); Reuben Te Rangi, Southland Sharks; Isaac Fotu, Ratiopharm Ulm (GER); Max Darling, Canterbury Rams

Centres: Jack Salt, University of Virginia (USA); Rob Loe, Cairns Taipans; Tyrell Harrison, Southwest Metro Pirates (AUS)
