Basketballghana.com can confirm the final roster for Canada’s Men’s National Basketball Team has been named as the team prepares to compete in qualification games for the Tokyo Olympics.
The Olympic Qualification Games commence today, June 29 in Victoria, Canada and three other cities including Serbia’s capital Belgrade to determine the final four nations to compete at this year’s Olympics.
However, highly rated Ghanaian-Canadian international Center Charles Bediako didn’t make the cut after getting called up the team’s camp for the first time.
The 19 year old is a four star recruit who committed to play for University of Alabama earlier this year after starring for Canada at the Under 17 and Under 19 Basketball World Cups.
While the 6 foot 11 inch Bediako didn’t make the final cut, the team named a strong side filled with NBA players even in the absence of Jamal Murray, Tristan Thompson and Melvin Ejim to compete against China and Greece.
The group is led by Golden State Warriors Forward Andrew Wiggins and is Coached by Toronto Raptors Head Coach Nick Nurse.
