USA Basketball announced point guard Quade Green and small forward Jarred Vanderbilt will play for Team USA in the 20th annual Nike Hoops Summit. The future Wildcats have been a part of the USA Basketball program before and could potentially play for them this summer under John Calipari.
Calipari’s two top remaining targets, Mo Bamba and Kevin Knox, will also play for Team USA. Team World has not yet been announced, but Canadian Shai Gilgeous-Alexander will likely be in the mix. The all-star game will be played at 10:00 p.m. on April 7 in Portland, Oregon.
Just a few former Cats have played in this prestigious game:
- Anthony Davis
- DeMarcus Cousins
- Enes Kanter
- Julius Randle
- Michel Kidd-Gilchrist
- Isaiah Briscoe
- Nerlens Noel
- John Wall
That’s just the tip of the iceberg — 15 more Wildcats are on this long list.
