Former Michigan Wolverines standout Tim Hardaway Jr has been invited to be a part of the USA Basketball select team that will train with the men’s national team in Las Vegas, NV prior to the FIBA World Cup.
Hardaway Jr joins Victor Oladipo, Marcus Smart, Doug McDermott, Tobias Harris as well as Mason and Miles Plumlee as names that have been leaked to this point. It is anticipated that the entire USA Basketball select team roster will be announced soon as training camp begins on July 28th.
In his rookie season with the Knicks, Hardaway Jr averaged 10.2 points and 1.5 rebounds per game while shooting just under 43% from the field. The former first round pick is playing with the Knicks entry into the 2014 Samsung Vegas Summer League this month and has had a great showing to this point averaging 21.8 points, 2.8 rebounds and 1.5 assists per game for the Knicks who have yet to lose in Las Vegas.
