Kirk Penney's stand out performances at the basketball World Champs in Turkey have been recognised by one of the NBA's benchmark teams.
The San Antonio Spurs have invited the Breakers shooting guard to trial after he averaged almost 25 points a game for the Tall Blacks earlier this month.
Penney will possibly have to compete against six others for two or three spots on the roster for the new NBA season, which starts in late October.
