Nick Kyrgios, basketball, Sydney Kings, publicity


NICK Kyrgios’ management has vehemently rejected reports he could be tempted to pursue a basketball career with the Sydney Kings after the club invited the Australian tennis star to “connect with the NBL franchise.”

Kyrgios, who is in Melbourne to lead Australia’s Davis Cup charge against the Czech Republic at Kooyong, has not had any direct contact with the Kings and is believed to be the victim of a publicity stunt.

The Herald Sun understands Kyrgios’ management was inadvertently alerted to emails outlining ways in which the club would leak the “story” to the media despite being told that Kyrgios had no plans to pursue the offer to train with the club.
