    Japan's U16 currently has 15 members:

    Riku Sasayama
    Takuto Nakamura
    Rin Yamazaki
    Yuki Satoshi
    Hikaru Iwasaki
    Koyo Nishida
    Kaiga Matsuo
    Seisin Yokochi
    Yu Kibayashi
    Chikara Tanaka
    Shugo Toyama
    Yusuke Matsuyama

    Seishin Yokochi and Chikara Tanaka are heavily advertised as great two-way players. I think Torsten Loibl will bring both Kazuki Kagiya and Yu Kabayashi into the 12 man squad as this team needs ceiling badly. Both are Kagiya and Kabayashi are just 192cm. Yusuke Matsuyama at 194cm is the tallest and Rin Yamazaki at 191cm (plays SF - PF) could take his place.

    Most of Korea's players in the U16 pool were part of the 2017 NIKE Asia-Pacific Camp:

    Jung Hee-Hyun 201cm C
    Cha Min-Seok 196cm F
    Kim Do-Eun 183cm G
    Kim Hyung-Jun 191cm F
    Kim Jae-Won 183cm G
    Lee Doo-Won 200cm C
    Lee Hyun-Jung 198cm F
    Park Min-Chae 188cm G
    Seo Moon-Chae 180cm G
    Yeo Jun-Seok 200cm C

    Most promising is Yeo Jun-Seok 200cm C / PF that can bring up the ball like a forward and has the ball-handling of a guard. Needs to improve his shooting from the off-hand around the basket.

    Australia will have a nice squad. Lots of really good guards available, some good forwards and a couple of good bigs and a new head coach.
    Point guard Tamuri Wigness(if chosen) will be one to watch.
