Didn't realize Wiltjer was Canadian... silly me :D

He's Andy Rautins Canadian; born in the states to a Canadian dad who played for the Canadian mens team; thus making him Canadian.

I see in one of the tweets that Andrew Wiggins is there, but he is not on one of the lists of U18 or U17. I know he is only like 15, but I thought he would at least be on the U17 invite list.

Does anyone know what the older guys are doing there as well? I don't see Sheppard having a chance with the senior team, Olu is still a year or two away.

The plan for Pangos is to play on both teams. He would be the backup point guard with the U18 team, behind Myck Kabongo. He'd leave San Antonio a bit early to Germany and start at the point for the U17 team over there.

I assumed he's talking about the U-18 team, but maybe he's going to be working out with his teammates for the All-Canada Classic Monday ...
