Tall Blacks forward Finn Delany has been invited to take part in a mini-camp with the NBA's Dallas Mavericks.

The 23-year-old Breakers player will compete for a roster spot ahead of the league's impending free agency period, in which teams look to recruit new talent.

Delany was named to the New Zealand squad for the upcoming World Championships on Thursday, and has just completed a stint with Serbian side FMP Belgrade, where he averaged 7.9 points, 3.5 rebounds and 1.5 assists per game on 50 percent shooting.

The athletic swingman is a product of the Breakers development system, and was impressive for Auckland-based ANBL side down the final stretch of the 2018/19 season.

Perth Wildcats centre Angus Brandt will join Delany at next week's camp.
