Andrew Wiggins, Anthony Bennett not on Canada Basketball roster

Tuesday July 22nd, 2014

Canada Basketball announced the roster for its 2014 European exhibition schedule as picked by general manager Steve Nash with two notable omissions.

The last two number one NBA draft picks Andrew Wiggins and Anthony Bennett will not participate in the exhibition tour.

Nash described the roster in a press release.

“We are fortunate to have a talented pool of athletes to work with. We have depth in each position and are able to field a strong team with a mix of NBA players, veterans of the international game, and university players."

Wiggins and Bennett, teammates on the Cleveland Cavaliers, have both been rumored to be part of a trade package for Minnesota Timberwolves forward Kevin Love.
