Canada Basketball announces star-studded training camp roster for Olympics

We have a player pool and pipeline that stocks us out to 2032 Olympics and beyond. This is the beginning for us. We believe we are ready and we will be taking on all comers, you know. But in the end, I think our goals need to be very clear for this summer. We are working towards climbing up to the top of that podium. We're going to this competition in Paris to win. That's our plan. That's what we're stuck to do. You know, evaluating ourselves coming out of the World Cup last year, you know, we could see that there are still some areas that we need to grow, right? We're we're trying to get up to the top of the podium. It looks like two small steps. It is not. They are two large steps that you have to jump, you know, up and with these teams reloading all around the world and looking at some specific areas that we felt we need to bolster and strengthen, we could not simply look within our core of athletes. We had to look within our whole entire player pool to give us what we believe we might need. That being said, we're going to have our players, all our players in cap and those that were on the team last year. We want to keep that strong core that's been successful for us. But in a few areas where we feel like we need to improve, we want to open up some competition there. We want to see the growth of our players from last summer in the specific areas. There's been a charge to the coach also to help grow us in some of those areas that we think we need. You know, Andrew Wiggins is a pro. Every time he's been within our walls, he's played tremendous basketball. I, I, I wouldn't think that this moment would be any different. A healthy, strong Andrew Wiggins is a very, very good player from everything I understand he's ready. He wants to be here and he's going to be coming here with his with with with all his powers, you know, and I think, you know, this is a player that's a tremendous player. I don't think I have to tell anybody what Jamal Murray is capable of. This is the kind of guy will manage his body and and the body of some of the other athletes that have very long seasons. But we believe that we'll have a good plan and place to have him ready for for Paris.
