Nash had been the linchpin of the side for many years, but has retired from the international game. Moving on from his departure, the Canadian side has a number of very talented players, but will need a new game plan to achieve anything in the Championship.

The team does have height on its side though. The average height for the Canadian players is 6’7”, and this should work in their favour. They are also boosted by the presence of Joel Anthony and Andy Rautins, who play in the NBA for Miami Heat and the New York Knicks respectively.

The team is coached by Leo Rautins, who has shown a willingness to experiment with younger players, and seems to have long-term plans in motion. He led the Canadian side to the FIBA Americas semi-finals last year, but will need to provide some serious inspiration if Canada are to make the latter stages here in Turkey.
