re: USA Basketball Camp Roster Set


they always bring in a bunch of young guys to see if they can make the team. As per the article, they want to blend the talent they expect back i.e, James, Durant, Paul, Love, Harden, Westbrook. Maybe Rose,Howard and Griffin.

I guess Curry is declining to play given his testy ankles.

I think you people saying "meh" don't know what this is about. Its about getting young players into and introduced to the Team USA system.

Irving/Wall/Lillard
Thompson/Derozan
George/Leonard
Davis/Faried/Monroe
Cousins/Sanders/Drummond

I'll take that team. (Needs some more shooters though)

FYI, Ryan Anderson is there too. Don't know why he wasn't listed but he's definitely one of the 27.

I bet we'll be seeing Kyrie, Paul George, possibly Klay Thompson, and possibly Larry Sanders on some future US teams.

Obviously guys like Harden, Durant, LeBron, Paul, Rose, and Westbrook will be expected back for 2016 but maybe not 2014. It's a shame that Roy Hibbert played some meaningless games for Jamaica a few years ago. he would have been very useful for us.

Sorry, they are all there now. The original list looked smaller than I thought but the first article I linked only showed 21 of the players

I don't think Boogie would ever be starting there. Drummond maybe. Also Monroe is probably the best overall player in the #4 spot at the moment.

re: USA Basketball Camp Roster Set


I'll try to create a 12 man team from that roster, so that's like our worst case 2014 squad. I expect that group would lose to Spain's A team in Spain though.

PG: Kyrie, two of Lillard, Wall, Jrue
SG: Beal
SF: George, Leonard, Thompson
PF: Monroe, Anderson (should be great in the international game)
C: Sanders, Drummond, Gibson (especially with Thibs coaching)

Cousins is too much of a risk
