      Sooo all canadians that'll be competing for a spot:

      PG: Joseph, Ennis, Anderson, Kabongo
      SG: Heslip, Stauskas, English, Rautins
      SF: Wiggins, Doornekamp, Nicholson, Famutimi
      PF: Thompson, Kendall, Bennett, Birch, Powell, Ejim
      C: Olynyk, Anthony, Dalembert, Bachynski, Bhullar, Sacre

      Am I missing anyone?
      What is great about that list is the depth ... We won't be crippled if one guy or two says no ..

        • Should see some Canadian talent. Great showcase. The kids will be ballin'.

              The Wolves in their history don't usually do the smart thing but this summer's trade ( although gun held to their head ) maybe
              the best move this team has ever done ..

              The negative is Anthony Bennett who in 98 career games has only 465 points ..

                Even more reason for Bennett to play for the national team. He'll actually get touches and minutes. Could do wonders for his confidence.

                  I remember when Bennet carried the Canadian national teams Jr's to a bronze medal .. He will have to earn it though ... If everyone says yes ...

                  • Looking at it from the glass that is half empty.....

                    Nicholson, Bennett, Olynyk are bigs that play less than stellar on the defensive side.

                      You'd rather Sim Bhullar and Joel Anthony?

                      Or maybe Sam Dalembert?

                          • Wiggins, 19, was quoted saying “It’s exciting to have the Pan Am Games in my hometown of Toronto this summer. Having the opportunity to play at home is very special for Team Canada and the country.”

                            • Sweet, if we get a good turn-out for the Pan-Am tournament, that'll be a great warm-up for FIBA Americas.

                                Parish the head of Canada Basketball was on the fan and said he expects a full roster this summer ... Busy summer for Canadian ballers .. They play in Pan Am games and get a mini break and then same gang will have to qualify for Brazil ..Parish said it will be sending our best too both events ..
