    On the bright side, gives the guys plenty of time to practice and play together.

    But yeah that is a total mess.
    yeah but on the not-bright side, four of those windows are during the NBA season so the teams are likely to cobbled together with players from whatever leagues are in their offseason's at that time, and coached by randoms.

    not sure there'll be a lot of team building

    Whatever happened to this guy? Did he eat himself into oblivion?

    According to his wiki page still playing basketball in Taiwan so still living the good life.

    Tristan Thompson is the big we actually need, but Birch would be nice also. Boucher isn't a C and would do nothing to stop the 260+ goliaths we face in international ball. I'd still like him on the squad but more for his offense and long arms getting into passing lanes. If a 7' big posts him up he's not gonna be able to offer much resistance.

    Edey definitely seems worth a flyer, but not sure he'll be ready for next year.

    Some talent infusion would definitely help.. but we need to get bigger too. Hopefully for the Worlds we get Birch and Boucher. Maybe even Edey who was our best player in the U19 games.

    As it should be. If we end up with lesser talent it will be offset by the familiarity with the program/team/coach/offense/defense.

    Hopefully the big guns commit (Murray and SGA) and I think we'll qualify at the World Cup. Luckily it seems like the Americas teams are all on a downswing except USA and Canada. Argentina isn't the powerhouse it used to be.

    You're underselling this. Nurse also has basically said if you aren't interested in next summer and world cup then check back in 2025. If they stick to that, it could pay big dividends. Qualifying for the Olympics at the world cup would solve a lot of Canada's issues.

    With the terrible news on Baynes, I have no issues with guys with uncertain contract situations sitting out. Missing Olynyk, Birch, and Boucher hurt our chances of making the Olympics, but I get it.

    I feel sorry for Baynes. No new contract and then a year (potentially career) ending injury suffered at the olympics is a nightmare scenario.
    Baynes in this case probably had to rebuild his value around the league since had such a bad season last season. So getting time in the Olympics was a way to do that.

    I don't think Patti Mills (bronze) or Evan Fournier (silver) regret going to the Olympics.. and they were both free agents.
