Team USA starts training camp in Las Vegas on August 5th and those selected have a full August filled with practices and games and eventually the 2019 FIBA World Cup.
Team USA, led by Coach Popovich, has just five all-stars remaining in their pool of players to select from. Of course, this doesn't count talented players like McCollum who were not All-Stars but certainly could have helped Team USA in international play. The five remaining All-Stars under consideration are:
- Bradley Beal (Washington Wizards)
- Kemba Walker (Charlotte Hornets)
- Khris Middleton (Milwaukee Bucks)
- Kyle Lowry (Toronto Raptors)
More to come from Team USA's events this summer as Dwight Jaynes heads to Las Vegas in August to follow Damian Lillard through their first training camp.
