The fifth edition of the NBA Academy Games will feature eight teams: four teams of top prospects from the league’s academies in Australia, Mexico and Senegal, a select team comprised of top prospects from outside the U.S., and three Nike EYBL teams – All Iowa Attack (Iowa), Howard Pulley (Minn.) and MOKAN Elite (Mo.). Linked here  are the rosters of the participating teams (rosters are subject to change).
