Dion Waiters has been named to the U.S. Select team that will train next week with Team USA next week in Las Vegas in preparation for the FIBA World Cup.
The Select team has traditionally been known as a feeder system for the Americans. Kyrie Irving, now part of the U.S. men’s national roster for both this fall’s World Cup and the 2016 Olympics, was previously part of the Select team.
Waiters averaged 15.9 points last season in primarily a reserve role. He will be joined on the Select team by Harrison Barnes, Trey Burke, Jimmy Butler, Draymond Green, Tim Hardaway Jr., Tobias Harris, Doug McDermott, Victor Oladipo, Mason Plumlee, Miles Plumlee, Marcus Smart and Cody Zeller.
The Las Vegas training camp runs July 28-31.
