    Tall Black' player gutted he won't share court with Steven Adams at World Cup

    One of the Tall Blacks' best players is gutted he won't get to share the court with Steven Adams at this year's basketball World Cup


    The Oklahoma City Thunder big man is unavailable for the China tournament, although could be in the mix for the Olympics next year if the Tall Blacks qualify.

    Forward Isaac Fotu says Adams' experience and skill set would've made the team a lot better.

    He says he's disappointed that Adams isn't playing, but doesn't know his situation so won't speak bad about him, but they have guys who want to play for the team so that'll be the focus.

    Isaac Fotu's currently on the hunt for a new club after spending two seasons with German side Ratiopharm Ulm.
