PORTLAND (Nike Hoop Summit) - Looking for the next Kevin Durant, Kevin Garnett, Dirk Nowitzki, Tony Parker, Derrick Rose or Anthony Davis? Well, the future of basketball will be on display on Saturday April 20, as the best youngsters in the game around the world will face off at the 2013 Nike Hoop Summit.
The list of participants at the past 15 editions of the annual U19 exhibition pitting the best USA talents and the top players from around the world is like reading a list of who's who of stars in the NBA, international and college basketball.
Other NBA stars that have played in the Hoop Summit include Nicolas Batum, Monta Ellis, Rudy Gay, Kyrie Irving, Joe Johnson, Kevin Love, Andrea Bargnani, Enes Kanter and John Wall.
As of January 2013, 68 former USA players and 17 former World team members were active in the NBA. Nineteen past U.S. players and six former World team athletes are currently playing at the collegiate level.
The top three picks in the 2012 NBA Draft were former USA Nike Hoop Summit players - Anthony Davis at No. 1, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist at No. 2 and Bradley Beal at No. 3. Six past Summit players have been top overall picks in NBA drafts and 46 have been selected in the top 10.
The 16th Hoop Summit takes place on Saturday April 20 at 4pm local time (1am CET Sunday) at the Rose Garden in Portland, Oregon. This is the fifth consecutive year the game is being played in Portland.
And there's no shortage of elite talent in this year's game.
The biggest headliner is Canadian star Andrew Wiggins, who is projected to be the number one pick in the 2014 NBA Draft. The 18-year-old led the World Team to victory in the 2012 Hoop Summit with 20 points and is back for more.
The World Team - featuring 11 players from 10 different countries on five continents - is hoping to finally repeat the title after improving its mark to 4-11 last spring. The USA had won in 2010 and 2011 after Milan Macvan and Donatas Motiejunas headed the World's team win in 2009, snapping the USA's seven-game winning streak.
This year's World Team also includes a 2012 Olympian in Russia's Sergey Karasev as well as 2012 FIBA U17 World Championship All-Tournament Team members Dante Exum of Australia and Gabriel Deck of Argentina.
Other top level talents for World Team coach Roy Rana of Canada include Dennis Schröder of Germany, Montenegro guard Nikola Ivanovic, Mouhammadou Jaiteh and Livio Jean-Charles of France and Karl Towns Jr of the Dominican Republic.
Lithuania's Tomas Dimsa replaced Croatian star Mario Hezonja while Cameroon's Joel Embiid was a late addition to the squad.
The USA team is also well-stocked with future superstars.
Forward Jabari Parker is only 18 years old but already has high expectations of great things while Aaron Gordon will follow in his brother's footsteps as Drew Gordon helped the USA to the win at the 2008 Hoop Summit.
Julius Randle and Noah Vonleh are a force in the middle while twins Aaron and Andrew Harrison cause nightmares to opponents.
Rondae Hollis-Jefferson, Demetrius Jackson, Bobby Portis and Kasey Hill round out the 10-man USA roster, which will be coached by Mike Jones.
