McDermott, Smart, Oladipo among invitees for Team USA camp in Vegas
2014 first-round picks Doug McDermott and Marcus Smart are among the players selected to compete against USA men's national team players at a three-day training camp in Las Vegas later this summer, according to reports.
McDermott and Smart were the only two college players to participate in the camp last year.
The camp will take place from July 28 to Aug. 1.
On Monday, national team managing director Jerry Colangelo announced team USA's 2014-16 roster for the training camp. The 19-player pool will be cut down to 12 for the FIBA Basketball World Cup, which runs from Aug. 30 to Sept. 14 in Spain.
