    Ejim on Canadian National Team

    Link
    Hopefully he plays well and is able to impress more NBA teams. You'll notice a few other big 12 players on the roster as well.

    Re: Ejim on Canadian National Team

    Does this mean that the Spurs cut him?

    Ejim should go earn some really nice money in Europe after he plays on the National team. He will do really well over there.

    Obviously there hasn't been any news about the Spurs giving Ejim a contract after summer league concluded, but I don't think the two are related. Olynyk is on the roster and he for sure has a guaranteed NBA contract with Boston. I'm pretty sure some of those other guys are NBA rosters as well.

    Is this the roster they are forming their FIBA World Championship team from? If so, I'm surprised that some of the bigger Canadian names like Wiggins or Tristan Thompson aren't included. Those guys are still young, it's not like some of the U.S. guys that opt out of the national teams because of high mileage on their bodies.

    He never had a contract with the Spurs so there isn't anything to cut him from. Besides, this is separate from anything to do with the NBA. Several of these players (Joseph, Sacre, Olynyk) are currently under contract with NBA teams. This is to get in a bunch of scrimmages overseas to prepare for the FIBA World Cup to be held in late August-early September in Spain. I don't know if these are the ONLY players that they will bring to Spain for the World Cup but I doubt it. Odds are this is just to give these players experience competing overseas. The guys that have already competed internationally for Canada (Wiggins, etc...) will probably still be eligible to compete at the FIBA World Cup if they choose to.

    Canadian bball has some great young talent. Mel could be on some really good teams the next few years.

    Canada may have the most nba players now of a foreign country. Last year france had 9 and Canada had 8, know Canada added at least wiggins but not sure who else will be cut or make teams.

    I would be surprised if Nik Stauskas wasn't playing next year as well

    Yeah knew I was forgetting an obvious one. If they aren't the most represented this year they will be soon with how young they are and future prospects.
