Every year the NBA grows it’s numbers of International players.  At the start of the 2016-17 season there were 113 International players on rosters.

So which country will make that next step to really compete with Team USA?  Who would have the best chance to get them in an one off situation like a Gold Medal Match.

I’ve compiled my best 9 man rosters from the countries who I think have the highest chance to compete and where do you rank them?
