The Canadian men's basketball roster for the Pan Am Games was officially announced on Saturday, with NBA players Anthony Bennett and Andrew Nicholson headlining the list.

As expected, the team will make due without standout talents Andrew Wiggins and Tristan Thompson. 

However, the roster is still made up with quality young players with great potential in Jamal Murray, Kyle Wiltjer and Dillon Brooks.
