    They can only select 12, currently the roster is at 19... Camp starts on the July 24th, The Cup is August 30-Sept 14.

    K. Thompson
    P. George
    Durant

    I don't think Rose makes it.
    D. Cousins loses out to defense... (Drummond)
    I got Faried over Parsons, DeRozen & Beal because a role player ala Iggy is needed.
    Haywood and Kover don't make it because they are Korver and Haywood...

    I wouldn't be surprised if K. Thompson is left off in favor of a DeRozen or Parsons.

    Out of the 19-man training roster: Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson from the Warriors, DeMar DeRozan from the Raptors, Chandler Parsons from the Mavericks,Bradley Beal from the Wizards, DeMarcus Cousins from the Kings, Anthony Davis from the Pelicans, Andre Drummond from the Pistons, Kevin Durant from the Thunder, Kenneth Faried from the Nuggets, Paul George from the Pacers, Blake Griffin from the Clippers, James Harden from the Rockets, Gordon Hayward from the Jazz, Kyrie Irving from the Cavaliers, Kyle Korver from the Hawks, Damian Lillard from the Trail Blazersand Kevin Love from the Timberwolves, Derrick Rose from the Chicago Bulls.

    I am eliminating Derrick Rose for health concerns and Love already pulled himself.

    PG: Curry, Lilliard
    SG: George, Harden, Thompson
    SF: KD, Parsons
    PF: Griffin, Faried
    C: Davis, Drummond, Boogie

    Alts: DeRozan, Irving

    Hard to ignore Korver's insane shooting but the team is VERY deep in shooters.
    Davis, Faried, Drummond all protect the paint.
    Parsons can play a stretch 4 or versatile 3 so won a role player slot over DeRozan and Hayward (both mostly SG) from me.

    will be interesting to see how they handle things.
    millsap is very capable but coming in late they may prefer to not rely on him.
    they could shift KD to the 4 and start smaller but insanely skilled everywhere.

    whatever they do that is a lot of talent to play with.

    Just wanted to mention John Wall being added made the total 20, but with Paul George's injury they are back down to 19.

    I am shocked Rose is doing this but I guess he needs the high level basketball comp to truly prepare.

    If he is healthy and wants to play you gotta take him.

    interesting roster.
    lots of size.
    surprised Rose is sticking if he already has soreness and scheduled days off.

    From a Mavs standpoint bittersweet about Parsons.
    Less reason to watch which is a bummer but also removes injury risk from a key starter.

    I think Rose may come off the bench to provide energy.... and he's said that his knees has not been a problem...
    I guess we will find out if that's the case or not.

    Size is for Spain.... will be an interesting tourney....

    He is saying that while sitting out practices.
    That would scare me to death were I a Bulls fan.
