Lillard Mentioned As Candidate For USA Basketball Invite
Feb 22, 2013 8:59 PM EST
Damian Lillard has been mentioned as a candidate to participate in USA Basketballâ€™s minicamp, slated for late July in Las Vegas, Nev.
â€śDamian is definitely on our radar,â€ť director of USA Basketball Jerry Colangelo said. â€śHe's one of the bright young stars we have in this game and certainly his chances are very high that he makes our list.â€ť
The minicamp list of attendees will be announced sometime after the NBA season.
Lillard, a leading candidate for Rookie of the Year honors, is averaging 18.4 points, 6.5 assists and 3.2 rebounds in 38.5 minutes per game.
â€śWe're watching him,â€ť Colangelo said.

I'm not a Kobe fan

Considering this is in preparation for the Worlds, where the big stars won't attend, that's very reasonable - could be the designated shooter off the bench ala Steph Curry last time.
â€śIts my 2nd year of losing and Im not trying to get used to this.I didnt want to get use to it last year.I had enough of it. Its time to turn it aroundâ€ť
â€śRookie or not- Im not letting anybody relax"
