    DeAaron Fox is playing well in training camp according to reports. I think he will make the team and might be team USA’s best and most important player off the bench. Similar to the Russell Westbrook role in 2010.

    Similar to previous Worlds teams this 5 man unit of 24 and under players might star in this tournament.

    Fox
    Mitchell
    Tatum
    Kuzma
    Turner.

    2010 version was

    Rose
    Westbrook
    Gordon
    Durant
    Gay

    2006 version

    Paul
    Wade
    LeBron
    Carmelo
    Howard

    2002 version

    B. Davis
    P. Pierce
    S. Marion
    E. Brand
    J. O’Neal

    2014 24 and under

    Kyrie, AD, Klay, Cousins and Faried.

    1994 24 and under
    Shaq, Mourning and Kemp.

    Fox is better than Kemba?

    Kemba is 29. Just talking about 24 and under key contributors in the past and possibly this year.

    Kemba and Middleton (28) will most likely be starters in my opinion.

    Oh, I missed that. It will be hell of an interesting USA team. It's not a roster that has the gold in the pocket. At the end of the day it might be one of the best WC.

    I agree. They are the favorite but probably slightly against the entire field. It can definitely go either way.

    So for Team USA, I guess we are looking at...

    Brooke Lopez
    Myles Turner
    Mason Plumlee
    Khris Middleton
    Jason Tatum
    Harrison Barnes
    Donovan Mitchell
    Kemba Walker
    Kyle Lowry
    D'Aron Fox

    + Kuzma/Tucker/Young/White/Brown/Smart

    If I had to guess I think Jaylen Brown and Marcus Smart will both make the team. That will leave 4 players for the last roster spot. It depends if Popovich wants a third big (Plumlee), another point guard (White), another shooter (Harris) or
    a veteran (Tucker). Regardless of the direction he chooses I think this will be a 12th man type and not a rotation player.
