The roster for the Nike Hoop Summit World Team is trickling out, with 12 players preliminarily confirmed to attend the showcase in Portland April 9-13. This is who we've been told has been invited: PG: Josh Green (6'6, Australia), Yago Dos Santos (5'9, Brazil), Andrew Nembhard (6'4, Canada) SG: R.J. Barrett (6'7, Canada), Leandro Bolmaro (6'6, Argentina), Batiste Tchouaffe (6'5, France) SF: Jaylen Hoard (6'8, France), Dino Radoncic (6'8 Montenegro) PF: Ignas Brazdeikis (6'8, Canada), Kevin Zhang (6'8, China) C: Charles Bassey (6'10, Nigeria), N'Faly Dante (6'11, Mali) A talented and experienced roster headlined by Barrett, who comes in as the clear-cut best player in this game. Quite a bit of American high school flavor here, with eight of the twelve participants currently based in the United States. The Game will be held on April 13 at 7pm PST (10pm EST), televised on ESPN2.
