Obviously Wiggins is the crown jewel and if he turns out to be a superstar like most expect him to, then Canada could potentially be a top 5 team in the world by the Rio Olympics.

PG - Joseph, Kabongo, Pangos
SG - English (leading scorer in Spain), Rautins, Stauskas
SF - Wiggins, K. Joseph, Pierre
PF - Thompson, Bennett, Nicholson
C - Olynyk, Anthony, Sacre

There's also guys like Daniel Mullings, Sim Bhullar, Kyle Wiltjer, Dwight Powell, etc.

Olivier Hanlan, Tyler Ennis and Trey Lyles (#4 class of 2014) will also likely be involved.
