Sixers' Iguodala, Young to join Team USA workouts in Las Vegas

Tuesday June 16th, 2009

The 76ers' Andre Iguodala and Thaddeus Young will be among the 24 players invited to participate in the U.S. minicamp in Las Vegas next month, according to an NBA source with knowledge of USA Basketball.

Iguodala and Young will join a group that includes Oklahoma City's Kevin Durant, Portland's Greg Oden, Chicago's Derrick Rose, Memphis' O.J. Mayo, Utah's Paul Millsap and Ronnie Brewer and projected No. 1 pick Blake Griffin.

Raptors coach Jay Triano will run the camp. Duke's Mike Krzyzewski, who guided the U.S. to the gold medal at the 2008 Olympics, is the first choice to remain as coach. Krzyzewski has yet to commit to coaching the team.

The camp is the first step in reassembling a team that will compete in the 2010 World Championships in Turkey.
