Olynyk and Joel Anthony, now 36, the most senior of the senior team players, are teammates again, hoping to find a way to restore Canada to some semblance of international basketball relevance. It’s something of a sport to obsess on the Canadian NBA veterans who don’t or haven’t made a serious commitment to the national team program, and it is a newsworthy endeavour to do so every time the team gets together. But Olynyk and Anthony, at different stages of their lives and careers, illustrate there are those who take Canada very seriously. And if the country is to be represented at the big international events again — those games at the 2010 worlds mark the last time Canada was anywhere — younger players need to draw inspiration from the model set by Olynyk and Anthony.
Fourteen of the roster spots are accounted for by players on guaranteed deals. The last slot, though, is up for grabs. Over the next three weeks, six players — Joel Anthony, Gerald Green, Kendall Marshall, Gary Payton II, Brandon Rush and James Young — will compete to earn a place on the team. Five of those players have multiple years of NBA experience, with Anthony and Green each with 10 years in the league, Rush with nine, Marshall with four and Young with three. Payton, a rookie last season, may not be as long in the tooth, but he is the incumbent, so to speak, considering he signed with the Bucks late last season and has been with the team all summer.
