Edwards, Haliburton commit to Team USA’s FIBA WC team

Team USA’s roster for the 2023 FIBA World Cup is starting to shape up.

In a report by Shams Charania of The Athletic, six players have already committed to USA Basketball.

Headlining the six players that have confirmed to join the pool are NBA all-stars Anthony Edwards and Tyrese Haliburton.

Edwards averaged 24.6 points, 5.8 rebounds and 4.4 assists this season for Minnesota. Meanwhile, Haliburton put up numbers of 20.7 points and 10.4 assists for Indiana.

Also confirming their participation were Los Angeles’ Austin Reaves, Brooklyn’s Mikal Bridges, Milwaukee’s Bobby Portis, and New York’s Jalen Brunson.

Reaves was the starting guard for the majority of the Lakers’ campaign, averaging 13.0 points on 40-percent shooting from deep.

Bridges was the ace for the Nets last season, averaging 26.1 points in 27 games played after being traded by Phoenix.

Portis was the Bucks’ sixth man last season, putting up numbers of 14.1 points and 9.6 rebounds while Brunson averaged 24.0 points for the Knicks.

Team USA will have a training camp on August 3 in Las Vegas before playing a friendly against Puerto Rico four days later.

The team will then head to Spain and UAE to conclude their preparation for the global meet.

The Americans are slotted in Group C along with New Zealand, Greece, and Jordan. They will play their games at the SM Mall of Asia Arena.

Team USA finished in seventh place back in 2019.
