The Brisbane native capped off a brilliant debut series for the Boomers against China in Sino-Australia Challenge, earning a spot on Utah’s NBA Summer League roster.
Motum took the opportunity with both hands, producing two notable performances against the Milwaukee Bucks in the 87-71 win (16 points on 7-of-9 FG, 6 rebounds and 2 steals) and in the 86-77 loss to the San Antonio Spurs (14 points on 6-of-8 FG and 8 rebounds).
If Motum is able to secure a roster spot for the Jazz he would be following in the footsteps of fellow Boomers star Matthew Dellavedova, who like Motum was overlooked in the NBA Draft and may his way onto the Cleveland Cavaliers roster through impressive performances in the Summer League and during training camp.
First the focus for Motum turns to the Basketball Australia National Centre of Excellence in Canberra, where he is part of the 17-player squad hoping to earn a spot in the final team of 12 that will represent the Boomers at the 2014 FIBA Basketball World Cup in Spain.
