Rosters  

The World Team today announced the addition of Kofi Cockburn, a 6-foot-10 center from Jamaica, who will begin practicing on Wednesday, April 11. He will replace Daniel Oturu (Nigeria) who previously was announced but is unable to play due to injury.

Cockburn, who spent the past season prepping at Christ the King High School in New York, has received interest from a number of NCAA teams across the country but has yet to make a decision on where he will play at the collegiate level. Set to graduate in 2019, Cockburn is ranked No. 39 on the ESPN 2019 60.

USA Basketball teams, winners of the past two Nike Hoop Summits, have compiled a 14-6 overall advantage all-time in the Nike Hoop Summit.

An incredible 203 former members of the USA or World Select Team have been drafted by NBA teams, including 13 players in the 2017 NBA Draft.
