The 2019 FIBA Basketball World Cup is now less than 3 months away, and the 12-man roster is beginning to take shape.
Marc Stein of the New York Times reported yesterday that former Kentucky star Anthony Davis has given strong indications that he would like to be a part of the team.
USA Basketball has begun assembling its roster for this summer’s @FIBAWC in China and has a commitment from Charlotte’s Kemba Walker as well as strong indications from New Orleans’ Anthony Davis that he would like to play, according to league sources

Team USA will be coached by San Antonio Spurs Head Coach Gregg Popovich with training camp beginning in early August.
James Harden, Donovan Mitchell, and Zion Williamson are also rumored to have interest in playing on the team.
If both Davis, and Williamson decide to play it will be quite the spectacle as they may both be members of the New Orleans Pelicans this season. There’s also a real chance that Davis is traded before we ever get the chance to see them play together.
The World Cup begins on August 31st, and concludes on September 15th.
