It is a bit like saying that Canada's preparations for the World Cup have been complicated. But as he had promised Nick Nurse, after missing the tour in Australia, Cory Joseph joined the team.
" I have no idea where this rumor came out (on his package), "ensures the new leader of the Kings. " There was no confusion for me, the coach, Rowan (Barrett, GM of the selection) and everyone. We talked about it since the first day of training camp, how it was going to unfold. "
The rumor is part of the very serious Toronto Star, fed by the fact that it is very surprising to see a player executive "dry" part of the preparation, without anyone giving a clear explanation …
In the end, Cory Joseph is well in China, while the strong winger Conor Morgan was recalled in reinforcement following the injury of Oshae Brissett. Aaron Best and Duane Notice were the last two players cut by Nick Nurse.
Despite the big Canadian NBA contingent, there are only two NBAers on the team, with Cory Joseph and Khem Birch (Orlando), Melvin Ejim, Brady Heslip, Kaza Kajami-Keane, Owen Klassen, Andrew Nembhard, Kevin Pangos, Philip Scrubb, Thomas Scrubb and Kyle Wiltjer completing the squad that will attempt to leave Pool H.
For this, it will take one of the first two places, facing Australia, Lithuania but also Senegal.
