One of the stronger swingmen in the Boomers group, Worthington can score in the post or knock down a shot from anywhere on the floor.
At the Beijing Olympics he ranked second in rebounds, third in assists and third in three-point shooting for the Boomers in just 15 minutes per game.
He also has the ability to shut down an opponent with aggressive defence, and like Nielsen will do whatever it takes for his team to win.
He represented Australia at the 2005 FIBA Oceania Championship before he had played a professional game, averaging 7.7ppg and 3.0rpg. Subsequently, in his first five years as a professional, Worthington has played in four grand finals and won two championships, the first with the South Dragons in 2009 and the second with Brose Baskets Bamberg this season.
