Point Guard:  Cory Joseph, Spurs, Tyler Ennis, Suns, Olivier Hanlan, Jazz, Kevin Pangos, Gonzaga

Shooting Guard: Nik Stauskas, Kings, Andy Rautins, Pallacanestro Varese (Italy, Serie A), Xavier Rathan-Mayes, Florida State, Brady Heslip, Reno Bighorns

Small Forward: Andrew Wiggins, Timberwolves, Kris Joseph, Jeanne D'Arc Dijon (France, Pro A), Melvin Ejim, Virtus Roma (Italy, Serie A)

Power Forward: Tristan Thompson, Cavaliers, Anthony Bennett, Timberwolves, Trey Lyles, Jazz, Andrew Nicholson, Magic, Khem Birch, Sioux Falls Skyforce

Centre: Kelly Olynyk, Celtics, Robert Sacre, Lakers, Joel Anthony, Pistons, Dwight Powell, Mavericks, Sim Bhullar, Reno Bighorns


Despite having four C's, it's actually pretty brutal.  I didn't want to admit it but Robert Sacre is probably our backup centre.  He's probably going to make a career out of being a defensive seven footer who takes well to coaching but him and Joel Anthony are just terrible on offence.  He'd be alright as a final roster spot as a role player but I'd want someone just flat out more talented as the backup C.

Overall it's looking really really optimistic.  Maybe not dream team optimistic, but if in four or five years we have a roster of starting NBA players, we would definitely be a top five team, maybe even top two.  Then we can start dreaming of pulling off an Argentina on Larry Brown's 'Chosen By Committee, Not by Me, *** You Brad Miller' squad.  
With a team of NBAers it should be possible to win maybe twice out of ten (and if were lucky, gold medal game).

edits: colour indicates league, I'll choose another for lower tier or just plain garbage euro leagues and whatever else we need.  I didn't put Wiltjer because he's listed as PF/C and he's 6'10.  He nails the threes but he's the oldest of the college kids here so I just left him off for now.
Maybe I'll start positional lists after the depth chart if we get enough guys 'ranked' a bit here.

Andy Rautins can probably plug in as back-up SG

C: Kelly Olynyk, Robert Sacre, Joel Anthony, Sim Bhullar, Dwight Powell
PF: Tristan Thompson, Anthony Bennett, Andrew Nicholson, Trey Lyles, Khem Birch
SF: Andrew Wiggins, Kris Joseph, Kyle Wiltjer
SG: Nik Stauskas, Andy Rautins, Xavier Rathan-Mayes, Brady Heslip
PG: Cory Joseph, Tyler Ennis, Kevin Pangos


Gave about 20 names to choose from because you never know who is going to be able to participate year in and year out. Very deep up front with a lot of options. As years go by, Joel Anthony will fall out of this group and guys like Lyles will emerge as more certainties to make the team. Not a lot of depth at the guard spots but if they can get Stauskas, Rautin, Pangos, Joseph, and Ennis on the roster at the same time, that's a solid group to have. You also have Wiggins there to help create on the perimeter.

I fancied it up (check first post).  Please feel free to say if you think were missing someone or ranking them wrong. I don't watch the d-league, I don't watch euro leagues, I don't watch much college and I don't even watch the teams not named after a dinosaurs consistently (but at least I'm not completely talking *** here  Cheesy )

Isn't Melvin Ejim eligible for Canadian national team too? He was Big 12 player of the year the last season and he is having a solid season for Rome in Italian Serie A. He can be considered an option for depth at SF position

according to unreliable sources (Wikipedia), your right, added him.  Maybe I should add WIltjer cause I think I saw him go in one odd mock draft almost near 60th which still would be a bonus for the program.

As of tonight Andrew Nicholson is getting it back on track
And wtf happened to the forums?
Ohhh and staukas is doing better in a possible David Lee NY who gives a *** situation.

Jamal Murray is a projected lottery pick, after that, their is very little concensus for the Canadians.  Will Wiltjer get taken second round as a mature skilled Center or will he not cut it?  Bouchard.

In NBA news, the Harris trade may help Nicholson but Ilyasova has been healthy this year, no?
Hopefully the Sixers don't waive Anthony and he can find bench minutes there.  GT has been helpful for Stauskas.
Wiggins isn't getting the hype but he's coming along pretty damn good.
Cory Joseph is doing it off the bench lately, hopefully Bennett can find a role after the Raps failed to fined a serious PF.
