Default USA Name Their Select Team

US named their select team today which wil play against the US Olympic team in order to prepare them for the games in China next month.

No Raptors added to the team, but apparently Triano was named as one of the assistant coaches on the select team.

Quote:
The ten players named to the USA Basketball Select Team include: LaMarcus Aldridge (Portland Trail Blazers); Kevin Durant (Oklahoma City NBA); Jeff Green (Oklahoma City NBA); Luther Head (Houston Rockets); Al Horford (Atlanta Hawks); Andre Iguodala (Philadelphia 76ers); Kevin Martin (Sacramento Kings); O.J. Mayo (Memphis Grizzlies); Derrick Rose (Chicago Bulls) and Rodney Stuckey (Detroit Pistons).

Additionally, USA Basketball Men's Senior National Team managing Director Jerry Colangelo announced that two rising stars from the 2008 NBA Summer League will be selected to join the 2008 USA Select Team. The 2008 NBA Summer League is taking place July 11-20 in Las Vegas.

You do unterstand what the point of the select team is, right?

I'll also repeat something I said last year. Some of these players have represented USA Basketball in the past and there are others who will. This is an opportunity for them to get into the USA Basketball pipeline. We expect many of these players to be part of the next generation that make up the USA Basketball Senior National program."

I know what the point of it is lol.
I don't expect to see Tmac or AI or any of those players on it... I know the select Team is comprised of next-gen players for the team when the likes of Redd, Kobe Bryant, Jason Kidd, etc. are gone.

But Luther Head and Jeff Green? Cmon now... Sure Luther is that shooter they need, but is he really the BEST young up and coming shooter out there? Jeff Green? WTF talk about random lol...

Yeah, I was curious about the dislike here about Jeff Green. He's going to be one heck of a player in the next two seasons. He's everything alot of people seem to like, athletic, flashy etc. But he's also incredibly smart on the court. Luther Head's also a nice addition because again in International basketball hitting the open jumper is a big thing and Head can do that.
