Team USA JC are proud to announce the signing of international legend Erron Maxey (198-F-78, college: Providence) (198-F-78, college: Providence) and the return of Jermaine Barnes (193-G/F-83, college: Point, GA, agency: Gamble Sports Management). Team USA Overtake sat out of the 2016 Williams Jones Cup an were forced to watch the Philippians win yet another title.

Barnes; A four time participant in the WJC was apart of the 2012 team that lost to the Philippians by just one point of the gold medal game. "Its something I have never let go", said Barnes. Barnes recently announced his return to basketball through various basketball channels and made it very clear his eyes were on the Philippians. "They took what was mine and 2017 will be our year". In 2014 he signed a non guaranteed NBA contract with the Minnesota Timberwolves before being released.

Erron Maxey will be the newest member to Team USA Overtake. Maxey is currently playing in Australia for the Toowoomba Mountaineers. Hes currently 2nd in scoring with an impressive 26.2 points per game. Many say his age would be a factor in the season but he continues to prove hes a big time player.

"Adding guys like Maxey and Barnes is a great start to recruiting", said head coach Kevin Franklin . Erron Maxey is the real deal and I'm glad to finally get i=him in red, white and blue.

Team USA Select has received two medals in the Jones Cup (2012, 2013); but has never finished first. The Philippians don't look to be getting any weaker adding more NBA players to their roster. Al Thornton (203-F-83, college: Florida St.) was named 2016 MVP of the tournament and will return for 2017. If they Americans have any chance at the gold they will need more fire power below.
