Nike Hoop Summit Roster Released: Team USA is Loaded

New, comments

The Nike Hoop Summit is a high school all star game played between team USA and a world team.  It's slated for April 11 at 7PM in the Rose Garden.

Nic Batum played for the world team 2 years ago; Alexis Ajinca played for the world team the last 2 years.  Here's my recap of last year's Hoop Summit.

Anyway, the big news today is that USA Basketball has announced Team USA's roster.  And it is loaded.

  • DeMarcus Cousins (LeFlore H.S. / Mobile, Ala.),
  • Leslie McDonald (Briarcrest H.S. / Memphis, Tenn.)
  • Mason Plumlee (Christ School / Arden, N.C.)
  • Avery Bradley (Findlay Prep / Henderson, Nev.);
  • Derrick Favors (South Atlanta H.S. / Atlanta, Ga.);
  • Abdul Gaddy (Bellarmine Prep / Tacoma, Wash.);
  • Xavier Henry (Putnam City H.S. / Oklahoma City, Okla.);
  • John Henson (Sickles H.S. / Tampa, Fla.);
  • Mike Moser (Grant H.S. / Portland, Ore.);
  • John Wall (Word of God Academy / Raleigh, N.C.).
Sadly, no Lance Stephenson.  But still extremely loaded. And very cool to see Grant's Mike Moser in there.

The world team's roster isn't set yet.  For more information check out USA Basketball's site.

You can now return to your regularly scheduled trade talk.
