Josh Giddey gets Australian coach's support: I want him to know I'm here for him

Australia men's national basketball team coach Brian Goorjian has expressed support for Josh Giddey amid an NBA investigation into allegations of an improper relationship with an underage girl following a deleted anonymous social media post.

Goorjian plans to travel to the United States next month to meet with Giddey and other Boomers in the NBA for Olympic preparations.

Showed support to Giddey

Despite the investigation, Giddey continues to play for the Oklahoma City Thunder. Goorjian acknowledged the situation, stating the investigation is beyond his expertise but affirmed that he has reached out to Giddey to offer support.

"I haven't spoken to him, just messaged him," Goorjian said.

"I am just letting that settle but we've contacted him and let him know that we are here for him.

"I will go over and see him face-to-face but I have no control over that right now. I am just hoping for the best for him.

"He is a young man and you are part of his development. I think we have a responsibility, and I do, to develop him as a human being.

"When you are in trouble or there are things not going your way, or you have got some problems as has been the case with other players ... you are just open and let him know you are there for him.

"Right now this is in a box that is outside of my wheelhouse but if he needed someone to talk to, or support, I just wanted to let him know I am there for him."
