    2017 Jones Cup is July 15-23. Only TPE A, TPE B, Japan and Korea are confirmed for now.

    CTBA is trying to get the New Zealand Tall Blacks to participate.

    Sorry Oshafa, I have no way of knowing at the moment unless the organizers release the Jones Cup schedule early.

    Thanks again for the information.
    Jones cup is very early this year, and will it really be two weeks?

    Excellent, I was worried if it were the week before that I'd be out of Taiwan!

    Iraq? I know nothing about them!

    The Taiwan B will be the team preparing for the Uniersity games and should probably get shit stomped most nights I'd imagine.

    Philippines, Iran, Japan, Korea always have good showings and should be be interesting considering the new FIBA format will see these teams playing more meaningful games.

    I'm interested to see how the Jones Cup is used in the future with more FIBA games, will be a vital tune up/stay in shape tournament? Will teams start ignoring to stay fresh for the home and away games?

    The Philippines will tout its "Cadets" team in the Jones Cup, but with a few possible overseas reinforcements. Notable players include:

    Kiefer Ravena
    Matthew Wright
    Ray Parks Jr. (doubtful because of the coach's drama)
    Kevin Ferrer
    Roger Pogoy
    Kobe Paras (will play for Cal. State Northridge in the US NCAA Div 1)

    Overseas reinforcements include:

    Christian Stanhardinger - 6'8 PF (Fil-German who plays in the German league)

    Mike Myers - 6'9 C (import who played college ball in Eastern Maryland)

    Canada has a pretty legit roster!
    http://www.3dglobalsports.com/blog/c...liam-jones-cup

    Obviously, former NBA Lottery pick and MVP of the Canadian league, Royce White is the standout, but also Michale Kyser of the DLeague and Dalin Bachynski who plays pro in Poland. These are some serious big dudes who should give some of the usual Jones Cup teams issue inside.

    One of my favorite parts of the Jones Cup has always been weir cross matching, seeing how players raised in different countries, trained in different environments fare against each other, for example Canada is bring Usports/CIS MVP Connor Wood, a 6'7 wing player. His school, Carleton, could probably make the NCAA tournament if they played in a low to mid major D1 conference, so it'll be cool to see how effective he can be in a setting like this.

    Still curious on the Lithuanian roster, Philippines looks like it'll have a young and exciting squad, it'll be cool to see Koko Paras play and this team at least isn't as weird as that Mighty Sports monstrosity that came last year.

    Anyone seen schedule yet? Hoping that to be released soon!

    Didn't realize he was MVP, good for him. But how does he go to Taiwan? I may be wrong, but I think it takes 1 month to cross the Pacific Ocean by ship.

    According to RBC, ROC-B will field Kyle Barone as its reinforcement. Barone is said to be in trial for potential naturalization. Last year it was John Florveus.
