USA Basketball Draw Turkey, Czech Republic, Japan In FIBA World Cup 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Sat Mar 16, 2019 4:38 pm

USA Basketball were drawn in Group E alongside Turkey, the Czech Republic, and Japan for this summer's FIBA World Cup championship. The tournament begins in China on August 31st.


The U.S. roster won't be decided until after the NBA season, although James Harden has expressed his desire to play.


"As a basketball player, that's one of the highest points you can get for basketball. Obviously, you've got the NBA and you have winning a championship and all that good stuff, but with this, you're not just playing for your respective cities or where you're from, you're playing for an entire country you represent," said Harden.


The U.S., ranked #1 in the world, are going for their third straight championship.
