good for him, he will learn how to be better, even if he is just a practice player.

really good for his confidence and yes he will realise what else he need to do to become better. as a matter, with his personnality, he will improve because he would want to be part of the real team in the futur. good for us and especially for him.

He's been named to the select team. I don't see how this can be deemed as anything but positive.

Oh, and Triano will be back as an assistant for the USA. Again, I don't see how this can be deemed as anything but positive for the Raptors.

Considering how humble demar is, I can imagine him being real quiet throughout this, soaking up every little advice given to him.

Hope so, I see DD all over Hoopmixtape, I'm sure he's already played with lots of the big guy names out there in the NBA, so adapting to this environment should be no problem for him

good for demar, but when it comes to selection he will get cut
as for anthony davis, of course he has a better chance of getting selected, Team USA always likes to select 1 or 2 college guys, and he's the #1 college player, his spot on the roster is potentially safer than anyone else on this team

he got invited to the USA Select Team, aka the team that trains with/against the actual squad. Kapono also got selected to the USA Select Team that trained withagainst the actual squad in 2008.

Report: DeRozan added to USA select team - sportsnet.ca

"Sportsnet Staff | May 7, 2012, 7:43 pm


After representing Toronto through a shortened, 66-game season, DeMar DeRozan will get the chance to show his skills at the national level this summer.

USA basketball chairman Jerry Colangelo told Bob McCown on Sportsnet 590 The Fan that DeRozan has been added to the men's select team that will train against the national team prior to the 2012 Olympics.

DeRozan was selected by the Toronto Raptors in the 2009 NBA draft, and has since averaged over 30 minutes and 14.1 points per game over three seasons.

The 22-year-old guard also represented the Raptors at the 2010 and 2011 All-Star Weekend as a participant in the slam dunk competition. "
