    There is a FIBA World Cup this year so there will be some games with the participation of several of our players.

    Gobert will play for France.

    Mitchell will participate in Team USA's camps and he will try to make the team for the World Cup .

    Joe Ingles reportedly will participate for Australia. Dante Exum will NOT participate.

    Because of weird rules and qualifying cycles the Croatian national team didn't qualify for the tournament so it doesn't seem like Bojan will play this summer.

    Here's France's schedule this summer(times are in local French time - CET):

    I always hate this. I realize that playing for your country has value and I wouldn’t want to tell them not to play. . . but contracts in the NBA have gotten to the level that a PG type injury is devastating to your title hopes. It’s not worth the risk of injury to be there. Especially since the wear and tear of 82 games is rough. They need their downtime.

    Gobert, show us the jump hook.

    I hope Donovan practices and gets lots of good reps in but doesn't make the team.

    Ingles please play 20 minutes a game.

    If they must play, I hope they use this time to add new elements to their game. That would be a benefit to them participating.

    Never forget that this is where Exum’s career began to end.

    Most players suck from the get go, but then they play and sometimes get good enough.

    There is no way he’d be the same or worse if he was actually able to play basketball. And if he was, we would’ve stopped waiting to see if he was good or not.

    Joe Ingles 3 point % was terrible during the Olympics (4 of 24). Had he shot 30% they could have got the bronze.

    Does anyone know how they use him on the team? Is he a 4?

    He will play the 3, motem and bolden will likely play the 4 for us. Delly and Mills will be our starting backcourt and i think baynes will likely start at the 5 ahead of Bogut and Landale. Deng Adel will come off the bench on the wing i reckon

    Why did he shoot so poorly in 2016? Was he misused or was he just shooting poorly?

    Just out of form i think, he had a fairly poor Olympics by his standards, from memory i think the twins were born just before the tournament. So I think he missed a bunch of training camp and stuff.

    Born in NZ raised in Australia. Fairly common, NZ actually missed out on playing at a FIFA U19 (i think) world cup cause one of their players was born in Australia, family moved to NZ when he was 1 or something and he was considered a dual national and ineligible to play for NZ due to his Australian citizenship. Even tho he had Kiwi citizenship and had committed to play for NZ, he had to wait til 21 or something. Fiji or Vanuatu protested and they were excluded from the qualifying tournament, FIFA being FIFA applied their ridiculous rules over common sense.

    I just hope no one gets injured playing in what is basically a meaningless tournament in the big picture.
