    USA Basketball confirmed a training camp roster of 30 players with some changes:
    https://www.usab.com/news-events/new...-tc-start.aspx

    Missing from the previously announced list are big Isaiah Todd (ESPN 2020 #3), Anthony Edwards and Nico Mannion (who is in the sights of Italian Sr NT recruiters and actually top scored U16 Italy at the 2017 Fiba Euro). No big names among the added players.

    Wiseman is apparently injured. I guess that moves Mobley up the list.

    There is a African origin player ‘Adem Bona’ in Turkish roster, who is just 15 years old. Unlike Muhaymin Mustafa this kid is justo naturalized according to Basketfaul.com ... Apperently, he has been playing bball for just a year.

    Yes they can, as far as I know there is no restriction in youth categories except BGL. it can be said that it is even encouraged via the rule that if any foreigner who spends at least 3 years in youth categories in Turkey, he/she will be counted as 'yerli' even if he/she can not be eligible for Turkish nationel team.
    it is like the Spanish league rule I guess. but for now nobody tried to bring some prospects cause nobody is interested in growing the youngers up.

    well-put.
    There are established organizations and many dedicated people dedicated to youth development, but since the senior levels have no interest, all the efforts below are also degenerating.
    in all fairness, I see Turkoglu & co are trying to implement some ideas, like banning zone defense etc, but their execution & results seem terrible (and absurd) at the moment.

    Ok, I allways heard the oposite thing, that players like Osmani were in Bandirma for more than a year before he could play with a license for Banvit in genç (u18) level, even in that period there was not that BGL rule... (if he could play that first year, he would not be "yabanci" anymore now with that 3 years rule)

    As expected Mobley, the only other big man being Wiseman unavailable, makes the squad joining Carey. Nine finalists are ex members of the 2016 U16 team.

    Mobley is not the only other big man, because Stewart will play as dominant big. And Mobley is not a not notable addition because he is simply one of the most talented bigs to come down the pike in a long time. Following the U16/U17 Teams since 2009 this Talent pool is the most spectacular in allthe years even if some of the big names and surfire stars like Wiseman, Todd, Edwards or Springer will not be there. From 1-12 exceptionally athletic, long, powerful and creative.
