Notable players[edit]

Critics blame the absence of Nash, Dalembert, Jamaal Magloire and Matt Bonner for team Canada's disappointing performance at the 2010 FIBA World Championship.[3] Ambitions to gather Canada's most outstanding basketball players for the 2010 squad failed as Nash retired from the national team in 2007,[4] Bonner did not get his citizenship in time,[5] Dalembert was cut from the team after issues with Coach Rautins[3] and Magloire simply opted not to play.[5]

Notable prospects[edit]

Canada's national team has been rejuvenated lately and plans to be a major contender over the next several years. Several Canadians have been ranked 4 or 5 star recruits or have been called into the senior men's national team camp in August, 2012, including:[6][7][8][9]
