    Brazil roster announced.
    No Splitter, Raul Neto, Nene, Barbosa or Varajao.
    I assume this means they are confident they will get the autobid, but see nothing saying they made the payment due on the 31st.

    From Fibaamericas.com website:
    #FIBAAmericas2015 - Magnano convokes the National Team and Marquinhos joins Pan American Champion

    RIO DE JANEIRO (2015 FIBA Americas Championship) - The celebration of the conquest of the Gold Medal at the Pan American Games 2015 was shortened for the Brazilian National Team and their coach Ruben Magnano.

    With one month to go for the 2015 FIBA Americas Championship, the Brazilians began their route to their next continental commitment, by unveiling the list of players that will be part of the Preliminary Squad.

    Keeping most of the players who were in Toronto, the experienced coach added recognized names, such as Marquinhos, to this new stage of the team.

    The Brazilian National Federation has clear intentions for this team.

    "Within the plan prepared by the Technical Department and the Technical Commission of the Brazilian team, the 2015 season will be used to improve the development and the experience of some athletes, already thinking about the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Olympic Games and the future of the national team.”

    The Brazilians will begin preparing for the FIBA Americas C’ship on August 4 and the first preparatory commitment will be at home in the Super Desafio in Brasilia from August 7- 9.

    The team will then travel to Argentina for the Cuatro Naciones tournament from August 13 - 15.

    The next stop for the Pan American champions will be San Juan, where they will face the national teams of Argentina, Brazil, Canada, Dominican Republic and Puerto Rico in the Jenaro "Tuto" Marchand Continental Cup, from August 23 to 27.

    After the Tuto Cup, the Brazilians will move to Mexico where they will be part of Group A and will begin their participation in the 2015 FIBA Americas Championship against Uruguay on August 31. In addition, the team will face the Dominican Republic, Mexico and Panama during the First Round of the 2015 FIBA Americas C’ship.

    The 2015 FIBA Americas Championship will qualify the two teams that reach the gold-medal match to the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Olympic Games, while the teams that finish third, fourth and fifth will classify to the FIBA Olympic Qualifying Tournament.

    Brazilian Preliminary Squad: Derek Evandro Ramos, Larry James Taylor Júnior, Ricardo Fischer, Rafael Freire Luz, Vitor Alves Benite, Danilo Fuzaro Siqueira, Leonardo Simões Meindl, Marcus Vinicius Vieira de Souza “Marquinhos”, Carlos Alexandre Rodrigues do Nascimento “Olivinha”, Marcus Vinicius Urban Toledo dos Reis, Augusto Cesar de Lima Brito, João Paulo Lopes Batista, Rafael Ferreira de Souza, Rafael Hettsheimeir, Ronald Rudson Rodrigues dos Reis.

    Venezuela and Mexico are playing in the Stankovic Cup in China, but it seems like B team rosters for both. Mexico beat China 92-80 in their first game while Venezuela lost 72-65 against New Zealand.

    Argentina preliminary roster announced.
    Similar to PanAms with the addition of Scola, Nocioni, Campazzo and Safar. No Delfino (hurt) no Ginobili (too old)...anyone else of substance missing?


    FIBAAmericas2015 - Argentina in fine fettle as veterans join squad
    8/4/2015


    BUENOS AIRES (2015 FIBA Americas Championship) - Argentina did not make it to the podium of the Pan American Games but the national team nevertheless has an extra bounce in its step with the FIBA Americas Championship in Mexico City less than a month away.

    Stalwarts Luis Scola and Andres Nocioni were missing in Toronto but are now with the squad, along with Facundo Campazzo and Selem Safar.

    All four were members of last year's squad at the FIBA Basketball World Cup in
    Spain, where Argentina made it to the Round of 16.

    Argentina coach Sergio Hernandez was left encouraged by what he saw from the latest training session.

    "I thought it would be much more of a grind and that I would have to intervene many more times," Hernandez said.

    "But it went very smoothly.

    "I am very happy with what we are doing."

    Argentina have a coupe of warm-up games coming up in Brasilia against the Brazil and Uruguay, games that will be played 7 and 9 August.

    Hernandez's side will then take part in a four-team tournament 14- 15 August in Tecnópolis, Brazil, Mexico and Venezuela participating.

    Argentina take on Uruguay in another friendly in Buenos Aires two days later before traveling to San Juan, Puerto Rico, for more games.

    Brazil, Canada, the Dominican Republic and Puerto Rico will be present with the Argentinians.

    Hernandez's Argentina will play in Group B at the FIBA Americas Championship (31 August - 12 September) against Canada, Cuba, Puerto Rico and Venezuela.

    The sides that reach the Final of the even will clinch places in the Rio de Janeiro Games while the teams that come in third, fourth and fifth will claim berths in the FIBA Olympic Qualifying Tournament.

    Argentina preliminary squad: Federico Aguerre, Nicolas Aguirre, Matias Bortolin, Nicolas Brussino, Facundo Campazzo, Gabriel Deck, Marcos Delia, Pablo Espinoza, Tayavek Gallizi, Patricio Garino, Franco Giorgetti, Nicolas Laprovittola, Leo Mainoldi, Marcos Mata, Andres Nocioni, Nicolas Richotti, Selem Safar, Luis Scola, Juan Manuel Torres and Luca Vildoza.

    Yeah, I would also say Canada is the favorite. Cuba is the next favorite. Both Canada and Cuba played with their full senior national team at the recent Pan Am games where Canada finished 1st and Cuba finished 3rd.

    Canada named a 16-man Training Camp Roster. The main absence is Thompson who is signing a one-year qualifying offer with the Cavs:

    Puerto Rico vs Louisville series games are doubleheaders played between A and B (or Jr) teams, so I have understood from Louisville B'ball site.
    As a matter of facts some of Cardinals players were fielded in both games.
    2nd day results: PUR B - Louisville B 79-77, PUR A - Louisville A 96-62

    According to the news, Dominican Republic's Luis Montero will miss this campaign due to him focusing in on making the Portland Trailblazers squad.

    I don't understand why Peter John Ramos and Ricky Sanchez do not play with PuertoRico national team.
    And I don't understand why Arroyo is old and not Ayuso!
    I would also called Alex Galindo, Mike Rosario and David Huertas

    Canada in pole position, then the Dominican Republic, Argentina, Mexico and Brazil.
    PuertoRico is an enigma, too many important players out, for different reasons, even Harkless.

    Wow so little talk and it's Day 1. No prediction game or anything. (Why don't you make one dtown? Cause I'm lazy)

    Brazil looks bad, like really bad but I guess that's to be expected.
