I don't know anything about Team France but it looks like French Frank is their starting PG and he hasn't exactly lit the NBA on fire

Lebron - Zion, Barrett like Melo, wade like Culver, garland like tj ford, hunter like bosh, white like Barbosa, Clarke like David West. I think this draft is actually going to be deeper though

It does not look good for Okobo.

I would not expect him to play a big role, but with Parker (retired) and Heurtel (injured) out of the national team he should have grabbed a roster spot.

Vincent Collet, the French coch, explained today why he didnt keep Elie :
- interesting on defense but Frank is 100000 times better than him
- isnt mature yet as a PG, compare to Albicy and Frank who can organize

To conclude, i dont think it means anything since the way France plays is so diff than NBA and Elie is an NBA player, more scorer than organizer and he has to add it to his skills in the future.

Yeah, Frank is terrible offensively but really solid defensively.
