PG - Joseph, Kabongo, Pangos
SG - English (leading scorer in Spain), Rautins, Stauskas
SF - Wiggins, K. Joseph, Pierre
PF - Thompson, Bennett, Nicholson
C - Olynyk, Anthony, Sacre

There's also guys like Daniel Mullings, Sim Bhullar, Kyle Wiltjer, Dwight Powell, etc.

Olivier Hanlan, Tyler Ennis and Trey Lyles (#4 class of 2014) will also likely be involved.

odom is a decent bit bigger than tristan, hes got 2 inches on him, tristan is small for a power forward. so odom is bigger and only played spot minutes at the 5.

ive watched tristan try to play the 5 many times, and it doesnt work. even if fiba is different, at the very least it will be an issue.

You think Canada is going to beat team USA because of a couple high school prospects and a Gonzaga big man putting up big stats on WCC teams

Do you enjoy trolling or are you just a piece of shit simpleton?

No one is proclaiming dominance, and no one is limiting the roster to three players (the theme of the posting is far from that, it is focused on a swelling of the talent ranks, not one or two or three pieces), and if my memory serves me correct didn't USA lose by nearly twenty in an Olympic game versus Puerto Rico whose only NBA regular was Carlos Arroyo? You tone is misplaced and meant to rabble rouse, but what should one expect from a POS troll?

I'm trolling by saying that Canada wouldn't win the ****ing gold medal in the Olympics?

Carl English was not invited to camp last year, he won't be included with the national team anymore, he's a primadonna and carried himself in a way that was very destructive to the national team. Leo Rautins loved him but since he's been removed as head coach, there has been no pressure on the team to even want him back.

More likely Devoe Joseph is the third SG, might even start he's much better than Rautins and Stauskas are right now. They've already discussed having all three Josephs (Kris Joseph is Cory and Devoe Joseph's cousin) start together because of the amazing chemistry they have. Also Negus Webster-Chan is another good player. He's fallen out of the rotation at Mizzou but I guess it's more to do with Jabari Brown's play than it has to do with his own, I expect him to breakout next year, he has a really nice skill set for his size.

Other than that you're pretty much right on about the squad going forward. Considering we have failed to qualify consistently on the international level, the amount of talent being recognized is amazing, really good to see we are going in the right direction.

Lamar has 1.5 inches on him but then Thompson's wingspan is two inches more than Odom's. Add in Thompson's vertical and second jump vert and it isn't even close. Thompson brings more length to the table.
