Tyrese Maxey Connects with Former Cats at Team USA Minicamp

The USA Basketball Minicamp got a little extra Kentucky flavor yesterday.

The best players in the world gathered in Las Vegas for a two-day summer minicamp and of course, that meant Kentucky Wildcats were in the building.  Four on the 35-man roster once rocked Kentucky blue — Anthony Davis, DeMarcus Cousins, Devin Booker and the photogenic John Wall.

Just in case there weren’t enough Kentucky basketball players in one place, a future Wildcat joined Team USA for the final day of minicamp.  2019 point guard commit Tyrese Maxey was one of a handful of Junior Men’s National Team members to spend the day with America’s best.

A gold medalist at the FIBA Americas Cup earlier this summer, Maxey posed for pictures with John Wall, DeMarcus Cousins and Anthony Davis.  He also chatted it up with Russell Westbrook, a pro whose game mirrors Maxey’s.

Here’s a small sample of what Maxey got to see from his predecessors at the minicamp.
