Kyle Kuzma makes first cut for USA Basketball roster for World Cup

Kyle Kuzma makes first cut for USA Basketball roster for World Cup”

The United States, preparing their bid for a third straight Basketball World Cup title, wrapped up a week of training camp with an intra-squad exhibition in Las Vegas on Friday (saturday in Manila).

Two standouts from the Select Team over the past week in Las Vegas, San Antonio Spurs guard Derrick White and Sacramento Kings big man Marvin Bagley, were promoted to the senior roster. "They haven't played together before". Kyle Lowry and Marcus Smart missed the game with injuries. The team is expected to make more cuts before next weekend, when the national team departs for Australia to play three additional exhibition games.

"We're still in the early stages of trying to get together and figure out how we want to play and learn about each other".

The University of Kentucky product is expected to play a big role for the Heat next season after the team made a decision to trade center Hassan Whiteside to the Portland Trail Blazers. When looking at his numbers per 36 minutes, they jump to 13.2 points, 10.7 rebounds, and 3.1 assists per game.

"We had a great week of practice, and this game was all about showcasing what we learned", Walker said. Popovich and his staff had high expectations for Mitchell coming into the week, and he has been the best player on the floor at times. "This is just the beginning of a long journey".

During his first two National Basketball Association seasons, Adebayo has averaged 8.0 points, 6.5 rebounds, and 1.9 assists in 21.7 minutes per game. If Lowry is healthy enough to play, he is a lock to make the roster as a 2016 Olympian.

The Americans are scheduled to take on Spain in an exhibition in Southern California on August 16.

Having gotten his feet wet in this year's camp, it wouldn't be a surprise to see him push hard for a spot next time Team USA prepares for global competition.
