While the superstars of the NBA are set to win most of the early headlines when the season tips off later this month, the Aussie contingent in the league shouldn't be ignored. 

Ben Simmons has a new coach and supporting cast at the Philadelphia 76ers this campaign and the pressure will be on him - alongside Joel Embiid - to repay their fans who have spent a long time 'trusting the process'. 

No team has a stronger Aussie flavour than the Cleveland Cavaliers in 2020-21 with Matthew Dellavedova, Thon Maker and Dante Exum all set to take the court for the Cavs. 

Patty Mills returns for his 10th campaign with the San Antonio Spurs this season and has declared he is determined to bring "FIBA Patty" to the NBA with the same show-stopping performances he puts on for the Boomers.

Joe Ingles will return for another season with Utah Jazz, while Aaron Baynes makes the move to the Toronto Raptors.

Finally, keep an eye out for rookie Josh Green who will be pushing for court time on a talented Dallas Mavericks team after being selected 18th overall in the draft.

Meanwhile, SBS Courtside - hosted by Lucy Zelic - will return in 2020-21 and will broadcast before each of our LIVE NBA games.

Plus, join us weekly from Thursday January 7 at 7pm (AEDT) as leading Australian basketball journalist Megan Hustwaite weekly shines the spotlight on the unique characters and stories from the NBA, WNBA, NBL and WNBL, which help shape basketball in Australia.
