Basketball Australia has revealed ambitious plans to bring NBA superstars Steph Curry and LeBron James to Sydney as part of a USA Dream Team tour.

With Australia on the cusp of a potential golden era of basketball, officials are looking to capitalise on the increased interest in the game.

The Daily Telegraph can confirm Basketball Australia boss Anthony Moore wants to lock in a match between the Boomers and the Dream Team in the lead-up to the 2019 FIBA World Cup in China.

That has the potential to pit the likes of Curry, James and Australian-born Kyrie Irving against local stars Andrew Bogut, Patty Mills, Matthew Dellavedova and potential NBA No. 1 draft picks Ben Simmons and Thon Maker.
