Warriors’ Ognjen Kuzmic, Nemanja Nedovic named as candidates for Serbia’s FIBA World Cup team

Warriors center Ognjen Kuzmic and guard Nemanja Nedovic were among the 29 players named as candidates Friday that are vying to make the Serbian national team that will play at the FIBA Basketball World Cup in Spain later this summer.

Nedovic, the Warriors’ first-round draft pick last year, averaged 8.9 points and 2.5 assists as the starting point guard for Serbia at the 2013 EuroBasket.

The Warriors could have as many as seven players in the tournament.

Stephen Curry, Andre Iguodala, David Lee and Klay Thompson were named to the initial 2014-16 USA national team that will begin training next month in Las Vegas and playing games in Chicago and New York before the players that make the team head to Spain.

“To wear the USA on my chest and do what I can to represent playing basketball is going to be kind of cool,” Curry told CSN Bay Area last week.

Andrew Bogut has said he has not decided whether or not to represent Australia, citing his injury-plagued season.

    The Warrior’s should have Bogut stay in Queensland sipping on girly drinks under an umbrella.
    Who pays who to play?

You got in racism,bigotry and class warfare all in once sentence.

    The last time Curry played for team USA, he hurt his ankle. Yes, that’s how his ankle got messed up. It was the summer after his rookie year. I would strongly advise against Curry playing
