  • Well Anthony ' s reward for a busy summer helping team Canada is possibly being bought out by the Wolves . Considering how bad Wolves are in judging talent . This maybe a compliment for AB.

    • Yes they gave up on Anthony. I hope he finds himself a better situation and takes advantage of it

      • To the defense of the Twolves, AB did not perform well last season. At all. His contract keeps getting bigger as it is extended. Cutting Bennett was a cost analysis and business decision. I would say Bennett shows promise for FIBA ball. He could work on his all around game in Europe and try again (he's 22) down the road like Anthony Parker and now Sonny Weems, who signed with the Suns.

          Unless wolves have cap issues which they don't why cut ties now . Although he must have not much value cause it seems he was shopped around and not even a draft pic could be picked up for this guy .. Heck Bargs at least got a a first pic when he was traded .

          Did playing both FIBA events piss off Wolves management .. Would they have preferred him paying summer league ? If he was drafted in a draft position that he was projected would organizations be more patient ?

          Blazers with Jay as an assistant might be a possible destination

            Well they have a bench of guys who can play PF so maybe they thought they'd rather try and develop the other guys?

                  ... with the same results when the games counted, sadly.

                      If those 3 teams will be together with teams from Europe or Fiba Americas, the Asian teams don't stand a chance. Same goes for Africa. It's between Fiba Eurobasket and Fiba Americas. Unless off course the system/ draw of qualifying tournaments will be different to the one I imagine.

                        Lithuania, Russia, and Nigeria were the three teams to qualify for the Olympics in London in the 2012 FIBA Olympic qualifying tournament so Africa did not get shut out then. It was a different format than the 2016 qualifier, 12 teams in one tournament, top 3 making it to London.

                          Yup, but it's unclear what kind of format the 2016 qualifying tournament[s] is[are] going to be. So naturally, it depends. If they'll put all the teams together in one tournament (which makes the most sense to me) then it's between Canada, France, Serbia, Italy, Greece, Czech Republic and whoever is the host (if the host will be a team like Germany, Croatia or Russia). Even in this list there are plenty of very strong teams that aren't going to compete at the Olympics which is insane. However, Fiba announced that there will be 3 qualifying tournaments (in total, for both men and women). It all depends on the draw and it's just too early to tell.
