Jamal Murray will play in the Pan American Games with Kyle Wiltjer

We all know how proud Jamal Murray is of his Canadian heritage (the Canadian flag cape he wore during his announcement was a pretty big indicator). Now, he’ll get a chance to represent his country in the Pan American Games, which will be held in Toronto later this month. This morning, Murray was one of 16 players named to the roster for the Canadian National Team Training Camp, which will take place July 12-17. The final roster for the Pan American Games will be set before July 18 and the Canadians will open play on July 21 vs. Argentina.

Also on the training camp roster? Former Cat Kyle Wiltjer, who can give Murray an idea of what to expect in Lexington; NBA players Anthony Bennett, Sim Bhullar, and Andrew Nicholson. Still no word on whether Murray will come to Lexington before the training camp or wait until it’s over to start his career as a Cat.

Best of luck to Murray as he attempts to make the team. If he does, we should all get Canadian flag capes to support him.

    Why do we still write about Kyle Wiltjer? He is no longer a Cat. Gone.

    When I see a Canadian player such as J.M., I think he could be better than the current rankings. Of Course Rivals has him 5 star and that’s great. I my Big Blue mind I think we could have the top center and the top guard coming in. All that is good as Duke was last year, now we need for Alex to emerge as the beast as did Winslow and as Rupp used to say “it’s Katey bar the door”.
