Venezuela announced the 12-man roster that will play in the World Cup. Head coach Nestor Garcia decided on the final squad following the completion of the “Atlas” preparation tournament.


Venezuela will lean on their tried and tested veterans with their 12-man lineup for the FIBA Basketball World Cup 2019 bannered by eight holdovers from their 2016 Olympic team.

The Venezuelan national team will rely on the leadership of the Vargas brothers Gregory and Jose, Heissler Guillent and Nestor Colmenares while also supported by fellow Olympians Daniel Lewis, Miguel Ruiz, Windi Graterol and Anthony Perez.
