USA Basketball promoted Marvin Bagley and Derrick White. The duo will join Team USA training camp in Los Angeles starting next week.
USA Basketball also announced the cuts of Bam Adebayo and Thaddeus Young after the scrimmage between Team Blue and Team White ended 97-78 for the Blue.
Those moves leave the list of candidates for the 12-man national team at 17, counting injured players Kyle Lowry and Marcus Smart — both of whom remain in the mix.
Lowry, the point guard for the NBA champion Toronto Raptors told NBA TV during the game that he will meet with his surgeon, Dr. Michelle Carlson from the Hospital for Special Surgery, on Monday — at which time he may know when he can return to action. Lowry, who had surgery last month to repair a torn tendon in his left thumb, is hoping to participate in national team workouts next week. “Hopefully she gives me some good news,” Lowry said. He’s been in a splint for about four weeks.
