USA Basketball Camp Begins Today

The USA Men’s National Team tryouts will begin today with a week long camp in Las Vegas. The camp will feature players from all around the NBA, including the Utah Jazz’s swingman, Gordon Hayward.

Hayward will have to battle with 19 other players attempting to make the roster, as the field will be cut from 20 down to 12 players before the 2014 FIBA World Cup in Spain.

The players participating in this week’s camp are as follows:

Bradley Beal, Washington Wizards

DeMarcus Cousins, Sacramento Kings

Stephen Curry, Golden State Warriors

DeMar DeRozan, Toronto Raptors

Andre Drummond, Detroit Pistons

Kevin Durant, Oklahoma City Thunder

Kenneth Faried, Denver Nuggets

Paul George, Indiana Pacers

James Harden, Houston Rockets

Gordon Hayward, Utah Jazz

Kyrie Irving, Cleveland Cavaliers

Kyle Korver, Atlanta Hawks

Damian Lillard, Portland Trail Blazers

Chandler Parsons, Dallas Mavericks

Paul Millsap, Atlanta Hawks

Derrick Rose, Chicago Bulls

Klay Thompson, Golden State Warriors

John Wall, Washington Wizards

The 20th member of the roster is Kevin Love of the Minnesota Timberwolves. However, amid the trade talk, Love has decided not to participate and therefore trims the roster down to 19.

If Hayward wants to make the team and represent the USA this summer in Spain, he will be competing against some pretty stiff competition, but, he definitely has a shot with some of the biggest names deciding not to participate.

The camp will end on August 1st with a game at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas.
