Marcus Smart gets an invite to camp for USA Basketball
Among USA Basketball Select Team invitees to Las Vegas, sources tell Yahoo. Marcus Smart, Doug McDermott, Victor Oladipo, Tobias Harris.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@WojYahooNBA) July 18, 2014
While no Celtic vets were put on the roster for USA Basketball, Celtics rookie Marcus Smart did receive a USA Basketball Select Team invite.
Players included on the Select Team are chosen to scrimmage against the national team. While that might not sound all that glamorous, it is a nod to the talent of those asked to attend.
In 1992, the Dream Team lost a scrimmage to a Select Team comprised of college All-Stars 62-54. So watch your ass, Derrick Rose! Marcus Smart is out for blood.
