Will Donovan Mitchell start on the USA FIBA team?

The Utah Jazz enter their true offseason, with the roster set before training camp starts on October 1st. But before the season starts, three Jazz players, Donovan Mitchell, Rudy Gobert, and Joe Ingles will all take part in the FIBA Basketball tournament in China, starting August 31st, and wrapping up September 15th, just two weeks before camp is set to open.

While Gobert and Ingles are locks to make their roster, there is a slight chance Mitchell could get passed over.

Here’s the team USA roster:

Kemba Walker

Jaylen Brown

Donovan Mitchell

Mason Plumlee

Julius Randle

Marcus Smart

Thaddeus Young

Harrison Barnes

Kyle Kuzma

Brook Lopez

Kyle Lowry

Khris Middleton

Jayson Tatum

P.J. Tucker

Myles Turner

Bam Adebayo

My best guess for the starting lineup would be as follows:

PG: Kemba Walker

SG: Donovan Mitchell

SF: Khris Middleton

PF: Harrison Barnes

C: Brook Lopez
