Calipari is coaching the Dominican Republic national team and will call upon some familiar faces to prepare his squad for the tournament, which begins on August 30.

On August 15, Calipari’s two teams will collide at Rupp Arena, according to tweets from the head coach. Team Dominican Republic will face Team Kentucky, which will be made up of eight of the program’s former stars. Calipari will coach the national team while Sam Bowie and Joe B. Hall will lead the Kentucky alum.

Team Dominican Republic will include NBA players Al Horford, Charlie Villanueva and Francisco Garcia.

Team Kentucky will include John Wall, Rajon Rondo, Tayshaun Prince, DeMarcus Cousins, Jodie Meeks, Nazr Mohammed, Eric Bledsoe and Keith Bogans.
My guess is Rondo is only tentatively scheduled to play and he could still end up sitting this one out, but it's nice to hear about at least one Celtic playing basketball sometime soon.

Credit to Celtics Town for the find.
