Australian Boomer, Jack White will join the Denver Nuggets for the 2022-23 NBA Season after a superb Summer League series over the past fortnight.
Signing a two-way contract with the Nuggets, White impressed with breakout performances over Cleveland, contributing eight points, 15 rebounds, three blocks, two assists and a steal followed by a 14-point, five rebound and two steal showing against the Clippers.

A whirlwind month, White joined Denver’s Summer League camp late after making his debut for the senior national team in Melbourne less than three weeks ago. Boomers’ Coach Brian Goorjian is excited to see White’s hard work pay off.
“I’m ecstatic for Jack, he possesses all the traits that a coach wants in a player, he will be a great asset to Denver. During his recent games with the Boomers, Jack was a tremendous teammate with a very high basketball IQ, I hold him in the highest regard and wish him all the very best.”
The previous Duke Blue Devils captain and Melbourne United 2021 Champion has had to overcome a series of injuries that have disrupted his journey to the big league, including a serious Achilles injury only 15 months ago (April 2021).
He becomes the third Australian to join the NBA this year, after Dyson Daniels and Luke Travers were picked at this year’s NBA Draft, with the 22-23 season to tip off in October.
