Jerry Colangelo announced earlier today that Devin Booker will be a member of USA Basketball’s 2016 Select Team.
The Select Team is essentially the JV team, helping Team USA prepare for the 2016 Olympics in Rio. Jamal Mashburn was a member of the Select Team that infamously defeated the Dream Team in their first scrimmage back in ’92. Booker will reportedly be joined by C.J. McCollum and Myles Turner as they take on a few former Cats, DeMarcus Cousins and John Wall, in Team USA Camp.
The youngest ever to participate in the Three-Point Challenge, Booker averaged 13.8 points per game while starting 51 games during his Rookie season.
