Team Canada Taking Shape


29 Players Invited to Canada Basketball Camp, Andrew Wiggins Omitted

Jamal Murray, RJ Barrett, and Cory Joseph headline the list of invitees for Canada Basketball Camp, as head coach Nick Nurse readies for the FIBA World Cup.

A star-studded list that shows just how far the game has come in the country, the invitee list includes 17 names of players who are currently on NBA roster. The list also includes Chris Boucher, the Montreal-native who plays for the Canada’s team, the Toronto Raptors.

One noticeable omission from the list is Andrew Wiggins who has not suited up for Team Canada since the 2015 FIBA AmeriCup.

Canada begins its World Cup journey on September 1 when it takes on Australia. Canada will also square off against Lithuania and Senegal in a tough Group H.
