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 Basketball’s minicamp, slated for late July in Las Vegas, Nev.

“Damian is definitely on our radar,” director of USA Basketball Jerry Colangelo said. “He's one of the bright young stars we have in this game and certainly his chances are very high that he makes our list.”

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.

“We're watching him,” Colangelo said.

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.
