After a white knuckled round-of-16 affair, Cameron Bairstow and the Australian’s road at the FIBA World Cup has come to an end. Turkey bested the Boomers by the narrowest of margins, 65-64 on Sunday in Barcelona, Spain.
Shattering loss for @AussieBoomers but impressed w/youngsters @matthewdelly & @cbairstow41 in Q4. Both stood up under pressure. #GoBoomers

Posted to The One And OnlyThe Chicago Bulls signed 2014 2nd round draft pick Cameron Bairstow on Monday. At 6’9″, 250 lbs., Bairstow has an NBA ready body, and can shoot (over 50% FG and 70% FT in NCAA).
Bairstow will join fellow New Mexico Lobos Tony Snell as part of the Bulls roster. It’s an important move because it is a cheap roster spot option for Gar Forman and John...
The Chicago Bulls selected Cameron Bairstow with the No. 49 pick in the draft last night, and the reaction consisted of comments in the vain of:

Bairstow started during his junior and senior seasons, including 20.3 points...

As has been the case with the Utah Jazz’s first four pre-draft workouts, none of the six players who participated in Monday’s tryout session will be picked by the team in the first round of the NBA draft on June 26.
And certainly not with the fifth pick the Jazz own.
Jazz vice president of player personnel Walt Perrin added, "not at 23, possibly at 35."
With the Celtics’ offseason beginning earlier than fans have become accustomed to in recent seasons, the lack of news surrounding the C’s has been deflating.

Cleveland “Pancake” Thomas wants to be a starter.
And since the 6-foot-3 sophomore guard doesn’t see that as a realistic possibility at the University of New Mexico in the next couple of seasons, he requested, and was granted, his release from his scholarship from the Lobos basketball team Wednesday.
“All came down to I didn’t see my dreams coming true here,” Thomas...

Let's get less physical. That was the aim of new NCAA basketball rules this season. But you can't legislate against the broad shoulders and bulk power Cameron Bairstow displayed as he seemed to fill up a hallway just walking Thursday into the locker room area at the Scottrade Center.
When Bairstow enrolled at the University of New Mexico as a freshman he was 6-9 and about...

If Stanford wants to avoid being a casualty in New Mexico's campaign of #unfinishedbusiness, the Cardinal is going to have to cope with an Australian power forward who is so enthusiastic he heads to the weight room after most games.
The Cardinal's opening-round NCAA tournament matchup against the three-time Mountain West tournament champion Friday in St. Louis isn't...

Three weeks ago, the South Region would have looked like the Region of Death in this year’s NCAA tournament, with Florida, Kansas and Syracuse ranked as three of the top five teams in the country.
