Dallas Mavericks guard Josh Green was among the 12 players named to the Australian 12-man final roster for the Tokyo Olympics, the team announced on Saturday.

Green, who was born in Sydney, was among the 24 players listed as finalists to play with the Australian men’s basketball team. He will make his first appearance with Australia in the Olympics, something he previously said was a dream of his.

In addition to Green, the Australian team will also feature NBA players Aron Baynes, Matthew Dellevedova, Dante Exum, Joe Ingles, Patty Mills and Matisse Thybulle. Australia will be among five countries that will hold a training camp this month in Las Vegas.
