    Not the full contingent, but 7 NBA’ers + Nurse still has to be the class of that qualifying field, by a wide margin. Especially with Giannis not likely.
    They don't have chemistry going for them cause it seems a lot have never played together ..

    Eight NBA teams represented altogether. There are a few guys that could have breakout games. Barrett has previous FIBA experience, as does Wiggins. I think we can trust Nurse to get the most out of these guys.

    It is nice to see Andrew Nembhard at camp and it is his draft year .. That is a no no or usually an excuse for players to say no .. No Brady Heslip always loved he said yes every time Canada called .

    Canadian men's camp roster is out:
    https://www.basketball.ca/news/19-at...ing-tournament
    Name Position Height Hometown Previous / Current Club
    Nickeil Alexander-Walker Guard 6’6” Toronto, ON New Orleans Pelicans
    R.J. Barrett Guard 6'6” Mississauga, ON New York Knicks
    Charles Bediako Centre 6’10” Brampton, ON Alabama Crimson Tide (NCAA)
    Trae Bell-Haynes Guard 6'2” Toronto, ON Crailsheim Merlins (Germany)
    Anthony Bennett Forward 6’8” Toronto, ON Cangrejeros de Santurce (Puerto Rico)
    Aaron Doornekamp Forward 6’7” Napanee, ON Tenerife (Spain)
    Luguentz Dort Guard 6’4” Montreal, QC Oklahoma City Thunder
    Zach Edey Centre 7’4” Toronto, ON Purdue Boilermakers (NCAA)
    Melvin Ejim Forward 6'6" Toronto, ON Buducnost VOLI (Montenegro)
    Cory Joseph Guard 6'3" Toronto, ON Detroit Pistons
    Owen Klassen Centre 6'10" Kingston, ON Boulazac Basket Dordogne (France)
    Trey Lyles Forward 6’10” Saskatoon, SK San Antonio Spurs
    Bennedict Mathurin Guard 6’7” Montreal, QC Arizona Wildcats (NCAA)
    Isiaha Mike Guard 6’8” Toronto, ON Niners Chemnitz (Germany)
    Mychal Mulder Guard 6’3” Windsor, ON Golden State Warriors
    Andrew Nembhard Guard 6’5” Aurora, ON Gonzaga Bulldogs (NCAA)
    Andrew Nicholson Forward 6’9” Mississauga, ON Fujian Sturgeons (China)
    Dwight Powell Forward 6'11" Toronto, ON Dallas Mavericks
    Andrew Wiggins Forward 6’7” Vaughan, ON Golden State Warriors

    Not really a lot of studs. Is Wiggins our best player? I don't think this will be an easy tournament. I think Turkey will be the toughest out. I would have said Greece, but Giannis is going to be too busy trying to win a chip.

    For draft junkies, we might get to see Sengun up close.

    Why is it so hard to find any info on this tournament? all I want to know is who are they playing against(besides Greece), format, dates and what channel is it on? if this was a hockey tournament I probably would've found a bunch of infos already not to mention it would probably be on commercials a million times a day.

    I only know Greece is one of the teams they're playing against because of the posts above.

    True.

    But Greece still has 7 ft 3 240 lbs Georgios Papagiannis & he might be difficult to handle but I'm sure Nurse will come up with something.
    eh very big difference

    It is good news cause Canada lacks big to defend Giannis in this tournament

    Let's hope Canada has a team that can take advantage. It would be outstanding to make it back to the olympics.

    I doubt that Giannis is gonna play that game or in the qualifying tourney. Going from a deep playoff run to playing even more ball with not much rest in between doesn't sound smart. Then again Giannis is a pretty loyal guy so I guess its a possibility

    The most important date to remember is 29 June 2021 which is the first game of the tournament for Canada which happens to be against Greece.

    If the Bucks are eliminated by the Nets, Giannis is going to be there and the road to the Olympics becomes a whole lot harder.

    If i'm not mistaken a lot of these guys just don't want to show up for the qualifying tourney right? I'm sure if Canada made the olympics some of these guys will come through for a chance at a gold. At least that's what I'm hoping for.
