    In the USA Basketball site it is stated that "additions are expected before the game".

    An interesting coverage of some of the World Team selected players can be found here:

    Biggest missing European players (if not added later on) are E Kanter, J Valanciunas, N Miljenovic and A Gentile.

    Guo Ailun Declines Invite to Nike Hoop Summit - Mar 25, 2011 (by Arthur Volbert)
    Chinese basketball authorities caused Guo Ailun (193-G-93), Liaoning's outstanding young point guard, to turn down an invitation to the Nike Hoop Summit in Portland, Oregon on April 9. They said it would clash with the U19 national team closed-door training session, held at the end of March in Beijing. The team is preparing for the 2011 FIBA U19 World Championship in June. It is disappointing that we will not be able to see Guo perform against his peers in the Nike all-star game. But China has hopes of gaining its first world basketball medal in a FIBA championship.

    Guo, as a guard, would be at a disadvantage in an all-star meet with teammates from Europe and South America because of communication problems. The Chinese style of play is not geared for all-star games which require much more selfish individualism than the Chinese wish to encourage. Chinese authorities do not wish to risk that Guo would be injured in this game. Given his performance in the World U-17 competition last year, Guo has nothing to prove about his capabilities. So we must wait until June to see how Guo fares against international competitors, in a setting more suited to his skill-set, training and ability to communicate with his teammates.

    As always, this is a very thin World Select team

    Given the fact that (under normal conditions) the frontcourt could be led by the likes of Vesely, Kanter, Mirotic and Valanciunas or the fact that the 16-year old Saric might be their most talented offensive player, this is the poorest team maybe in years..

    A thin World Select Team only if Miljenovic don't come. With him playing point guard, everything changes. He has that ability to create space and open shoots for his team mates. I really hope he will be allowed to play.

    Couldn't disagree more, Noguiera is a flat out stud; a bigger, more offensively gifted Nene at the same age. Wiltjer is possibly the best sf in the world for his age group, Nieto and Pangos can bit score and have amazing court vision and Saric is a very gifted player. I actually think this is one of the better World teams in quite some rime.

    Fournier is also a really gifted player, most likely the best prospect we have in years for the backcourt(since batum i'd say , and fournier is already able to do a lot more things than what nico could do at his age). I would not be surprised if he was kicking de colo out of the nt in the middle term.
    There are some big names for this generation that are missing, but this generation is one of the deepest for europe in years imo

    I read the 10th players is Bismack Biyombo.

    Update: Guo Ailun's name is also on the official site as of now.

    Guo Ailun and Bismack Biyombo added to the World's Select Team, as officially confirmed by USAB as well.

    http://www.usabasketball.com/mens/ho...011_04_04.html

    The World's team will therefore have one player more than the USA roster.

    I think USA will won due the team chemistry, since most of these players are playing together for the NT since 2009.

    But the north-americans will be blocked a LOT with a frontcourt of Nogueira and Biyombo...

    Default Hear what coach Rana has to say about the HOOP SUM

    Coach Roy Rana has done a lot in his coaching career, but being appointed the coach of the Nike Summit team is one he'll cherish amongst his long resume.

    Check out the interview with Roy Rana on Oregon Live

    World Select Team

    This year’s international roster lacks the big names that past few rosters have had (Donatas Motiejunas in 2009 and Enes Kanter in 2010), but does feature a number of intriguing NBA prospects. I caught their Wednesday practice, which was not only very intense, but very organized as well. The coaches and the players seem extremely committed to winning Saturday’s game, which is consistent with what we’ve seen over the last few years. They started off with warm-ups and stretching, before moving on to several drills and then finally, an intersquad scrimmage. Here’s a brief summary on what I witnessed of some of the notable players.

    Lucas Nogueira - Lucas "Bebe" Nogueira has a lot of first round hype surrounding him, so there's little doubt that many scouts have been keeping a close eye on him. Throughout Wednesday's practice, he seemed to lose himself more than anybody else. He had trouble understanding the drills and he didn't connect on very many of his jump shot attempts. Defensively, he found himself overmatched by the likes of 7'1" 279 lbs Przemyslaw Karnowski and 6'9" 243 lbs Bismack Biyombo. Nogueira still has a lot of weight to gain. He only clocked in at 218 lbs and he has trouble defending in the post due to his chicken legs. That's troublesome for a player projected to play the center position in the NBA. However, he is still young and shows signs of promise. Nogueira is a legit 7'0" in shoes with a 7'6" wingspan. His length combined with his athleticism and instincts makes him a great shot blocker with a lot more potential in this area. He even surprised me by making several sharp passes to his teammates in the scrimmages. The US squad doesn't have any players with the size of Biyombo or Karnowski, so Nogueira could have an easier time scoring during Saturday's matchup.

    Przemyslaw Karnowski - Karnowski was an absolute monster in practice. He's a poor athlete, but that didn't prevent him from throwing down some backboard-straining dunks. Nobody was able to keep his 7'1" 279 lbs frame from establishing position in the post. Despite being matched up against better athletes, Karnowski had his way down low. He also showcased his jump shot, knocking down several shots from around 18 feet. Defensively he had no trouble against Nogueira and Biyombo, and he showed good shot blocking ability. Still, his foot speed will definitely be a concern against a player like Anthony Davis. He'll be an interesting player to watch on Saturday.

    Bismack Biyombo - No international player is getting more buzz these days than Bismack Biyombo. That could be because of his recent measurements (6'9" in shoes, 243 lbs with less than 5% body fat and an outrageous 7'7" wingspan), or it could just be because people like saying his name (I certainly do). Biyombo didn't showcase much of an offensive game on Wednesday, but he did bring a lot of energy to the practice. The athletic big-man showed a lot of toughness and activity on defense. He also boxed out and rebounded very well. Oregon Live Interview and footage.

    Kyle Wiltjer - The future Kentucky Wildcat showcased the kind of potential he has. Though it was a relatively quiet practice for him, he shot the ball well from the perimeter and had some very nice moves in the post. Wiltjer has great footwork and an impressive touch around the rim. He's also a solid ball-handler and passer. Wiltjer is a very smart forward who should be an impact player in Saturday's game.

    Dario Saric - Saric is the youngest player in the Nike Hoops Summit this year (1994 born), but he doesn't play like it. Dario is a prolific outside shooter with a very versatile and well-rounded game. He has good ball-handling and passing ability. Saric needs to continue to add weight, but he has plenty of time for that.

    Davis Bertans - Bertans is a forward with excellent length and perimeter skills. He assumed a leadership role and was directing the players through their stretching routine. Bertans shot the ball well and played tough defense. He showed during the drills that he can really shoot the ball well when coming off of screens due to his excellent form and footwork. His ability to play the small forward position at 6’10” will interest a lot of NBA teams.

    Guo Ailun - Guo might have been the highlight of the practice. During the drills he showed off his excellent ball-handling and shooting skills. Coming off screens, his midrange game was automatic. During the scrimmage, he would penetrate into the lane -- bouncing around his defenders like a billiard ball with his 6'4" frame -- and set his teammates up for easy shots. Guo is also a scrappy defender. He competed hard the entire scrimmage and really showed that he belonged on the team.

    Kevin Pangos - The future Gonzaga Bulldog had a very solid practice. He showcased his strong shooting ability and his overall craftiness offensively. Pangos should get plenty of playing time for the international team on Saturday.
