Matthew Dellavedova praised his Australia teammates for showing restraint in trying to avoid the Philippines brawl that brought a premature end to their FIBA World Cup qualifier at the start of July.

Punches were thrown and a chair was launched as a melee continued on and off court in the third quarter of the game, with nine Philippines players ejected.

Australia, by contrast, had just four players dismissed, as the Bucks guard encouraged visiting players to stay on the bench and ensure they would not be punished for their involvement.

"[The brawl] is disappointing and not something that has ever been seen before in basketball," Dellavedova said. "I can't really say too much because of the investigation.

Crystal Palace lead the race for Danny Ings

  Crystal Palace lead the race for Danny Ings Crystal Palace are, according to the Mirror, leading the race to sign the 25-year-old, but Liverpool will be hoping for more interest so they can drive up their asking price. Ings was linked with a move back to Burnley, the side from whom he joined the Reds three years ago, but the Clarets have decided that West Brom’s Jay Rodriguez is the man they want to bring in. Liverpool have reluctantly decided to let Ings leave after he requested a move in order to play regular first-team football. Ings only played a total of 25 games for the Reds in three seasons, mainly because of two major knee injuries, so he will be keen to join a club where he will feature regularly as he wants to get himself back into the England squad. Palace boss Roy Hodgson is a fan of Ings and gave the striker his only England cap so far, in a Euro 2016 qualifying match against Lithuania in 2015.

"It's very tough [to stay on the bench] but that's the rules. We didn't fully know the extent of what was going on. It's still tough to know what happened and not have left the bench.

"In the long run, it was the right thing to do, as tough as it was. By not leaving the bench I think everyone showed a lot of restraint in pretty extreme circumstances.

"There's so much positive stuff happening in Australian basketball that it's really, I would say, a blip on the radar.

"Ryan Broekhoff just signed a two-year deal after having a great European career. I was trying to get him over there a couple years earlier. So he's going well, there's a lot of boys going well in Sum [NBA Summer] League.

"The Opals just signed a new sponsor, I think we've got nine NBA boys now, the Opals' World Cup is coming up, I think seven NBA-NBL preseason games. So there's a lot of exciting stuff happening in Australian basketball.

"Then you've got the U.S. games coming up next year which everyone's looking forward to. There probably hasn't been a better time in Australia basketball that I can remember."

Manchester City to sign Daniel Arzani .
Manchester City are close to completing a deal for Melbourne City’s Daniel Arzani, the Daily Mail reports. The Australian prospect is expected to be immediately sent out on loan to Celtic for the 2018/19 season. The 19-year-old is expected to join City for a fee in the region of £280,000. Celtic are thought to have beaten off competition from PSV Eindhoven in securing the attacking midfielder on loan. Arzani made three appearances for Australia at the World Cup and also attracted interest from the likes of Roma. However City appear to have won the race for his signature and in joining Celtic on loan, Arzani will link up with fellow Australian Tom Rogic. City’s deal for Arzani will be similar to the one they completed for midfielder Aaron Mooy back in 2016 before he joined Huddersfield Town on a season-long loan, then later completing a permanent move to the Terriers.
