    Supposedly the national federations need to provide a 20 man player pool they will select a team from for the November Qaulifier to FIBA in the next week or two. Not sure the exact date.

    Keep an eye out for them and post here.

    They have until two weeks before the start of the international window to submit a preliminary list of 24 players.

    Deadline for the 24 man pool is supposedly Nov. 6th.

    I posted this elsewhere but strangely France named its EL players to its WC Qualification squad.
    http://www.fiba.basketball/basketbal...cup-qualifiers

    Andrew Albicy
    Fabien Causeur
    Nando de Colo
    Boris Diaw
    Antoine Diot
    Moustapha Fall
    Thomas Heurtel
    Edwin Jackson
    Charles Kahudi
    Louis Labeyrie
    Adrien Moerman
    Vincent Porier
    Kevin Seraphin
    Axel Toupane
    Leo Westermann

    Along with 9 back ups (24 total) in case the EL guys are not released.
    The players on standby are Axel Boutelille, Mouhammadou Jaiteh, Axel Julien, Alain Koffi, Lahaou Konate, Paul Lacombe, Mathias Lessort, Amine Noua and Elie Okobo.

    I am not sure what the heck is going on. Maybe a play to put pressure on the EL to change its dates. Since the deadline for the 24 man roster is now not until Nov 6th they have plenty of time to make chnages.

    The window starts on the 20th so that makes sense.

    So did Italy:
    https://www.sportando.com/en/nationa...ualifiers.html

    Presumably all the European teams will name some Euroleague players? There's no real downside, it's not like there are actually 24 players in contention to make the squad.

    Most of the US AmeriCup players were cut from NBA training camps. Hilliard (Spurs) and CJ Williams (Clippers) got two-way contracts, do we know if guys on two-way contracts will be available if currently assigned to the G League?

    Looks like all the European countries are naming their EL players. Guys like Hackett and Datome have already said they were not consulted and it puts them in a really awkward spot.


    I really don't know about the two-ways. I was assuming they would be available, but you are already seeing some of them up on the NBA rosters. I supposed it is up to the NBA team whether the player is needed with the parent club or not. USA Basketball seem to have enough power to get their Two-way players on board. Basketball Canada won;t have that power, but maybe USA Basketball paves the way for them.

    Chris Boucher of the Warriors is Canada's only two-way, but he'd be nice to have available (if healthy and ready to play).

    It seems Xavier Rathan Maybes, Anthony Bennett and Naz Long will all be in the G. Hopefully they make themselves available. Khem Birch could be a guy doing stints in the G too, but he's is on the Magic's main roster so no idea if he will be available (not counting on it, but it would be a pleasant surprise).

    Heaven knows who else is going to be available....wonder if we name our EL guys (Pangos and Doornekamp) as well, let alone other solid Euro based guys like Ejim, the Srubb bros etc. It is easy travel for the European guys to get to games, for the North and South Americans in Europe....not so much.

    Argentina first of the Americas to name their 24 man pool:
    http://www.fiba.basketball/basketbal...cup-qualifiers

    Argentina's 24-man squad ahead of World Cup Qualifiers

    Facundo Campazzo
    Nicolás Laprovittola
    Luca Vildoza
    Nicolás Aguirre
    Franco Balbi
    José Vildoza
    Máximo Fjellerup
    Lucio Redivo
    Eric Flor
    Tomás Zanzottera
    Gabriel Deck
    Patricio Garino
    Marcos Mata
    Federico Aguerre
    Franco Giorgetti
    Luis Scola
    Javier Saiz
    Leonardo Mainoldi
    Matías Sandes
    Marcos Delía
    Tayavek Gallizzi
    Roberto Acuña
    Francisco Caffaro
    Lautaro Berra


    I am unfamiliar with a load of these guys but interesting to see Scola who is in China this year - I had no idea if the Asian league guys would be available or not. I see a EuroLeague guy there with Patricio Garino - And see Eurocup player in Laprovíttola and FIBA Champions League in Campazzo.

    Any commentary on the rest of these guys?

    Looked at their AmeriCup stats and this list of 24 includes their top 9 players minus Nicolas Brussino who is with the Atlanta Hawks. But adds in Scola (if available) who didnt play at the AmeriCup. He was with the team but was hurt.
    http://www.fiba.basketball/en/americup/2017/Argentina/

    Main core from AmeriCup was:
    Facundo Campazzo
    Nicolás Laprovittola
    Lucio Redivo
    Gabriel Deck
    Patricio Garino
    Marcos Delía
    Javier Saiz
    Nicolas Brussino


    I understand that just because guys are on this 24 man list, it doesn't mean they will be available to play - but this is a start.

    Given the disaster Puerto Rico has faced it makes sense. Also they can drum up a lot of support in Florida so it might just feel like a home game

    Uruguay names their 24 man player pool for the WC Qualification games.
    http://www.fiba.basketball/basketbal...cup-qualifiers
    Jayson Granger (Euroleague - Baskonia), Bruno Fitipaldo and Esteban Batista, leading scorers for the Uruguayan team during the FIBA AmeriCup 2017, highlight the list.

    USVI also cannot host their November game against the Dominican Republic due to hurricane damage. The game will be played in the DR instead.

    Dominican coaches have been in Europe visiting their players. They are having a press conference on Wednesday, perhaps they will announce their player pool then. According to this article several players including James Feldeine and Eloy Vargas have committed:
