Coach Few is one of nine (NINE!) coaches who will be helping Greg Poppovich with Team USA minicamp this summer. This is the senior team.


USA Basketball picks 9 coaches to assist Popovich


LAS VEGAS (AP) ó USA Basketball has picked its lineup of coaches to assist Gregg Popovich at the men's national team minicamp in Las Vegas this month.

Of the nine picks, seven are NBA assistant coaches: Golden State's Mike Brown, Miami's Dan Craig, Utah's Alex Jensen, Boston's Jay Larranaga, Dallas' Jamahl Mosley, San Antonio's Ime Udoka and Portland's David Vanterpool.

The other two slots went to top college head coaches, Villanova's Jay Wright and Gonzaga's Mark Few.

The camp is July 25-27, with practices on the final two days. It's the first time the national team candidates will be together for a camp in advance of next year's world championships and the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

There are 35 players on the 2018-20 national team roster, including 11 who won Olympic gold in 2016.

The NBA guys. Steph Curry, Kevin Durant and all that. As opposed to the various age level teams like U-18, etc., with which Few has been previously involved.

This isn't a team with talent because Rem Bakamus is missing from the roster. Hopefully Few will fix this missing link and beg Rem to play.

Now I know why they call it the Dream Team. We might just be able to get 3 teams out of this group, and all three would medal in the Olympics. It's be interesting to see who makes the team.

Junior team competitions go through U23. After that, the top level competitions are for senior teams with no age restrictions.
