I don't think they'd be good enough.
I believe a team of US players playing FIBA competitions would be the best choice:
* They're used to FIBA rules.
* Playing in FIBA competitions, their schedule enables them to play/train as often other international competition teams, and with the same rest.
* They wouldn't need the usual insurements NBA players need to play for their National teams.
* They'd be much better than an D-League team.
