USA Basketball announced the 13 players who will make up its 2014 select team in a press release on Tuesday morning:

Named to the 2014 USA Basketball Select squad were: Harrison Barnes (Golden State Warriors); Trey Burke (Utah Jazz); Jimmy Butler (Chicago Bulls); Draymond Green (Golden State Warriors), Tim Hardaway Jr. (New York Knicks); Tobias Harris (Orlando Magic); Doug McDermott (Chicago Bulls);Victor Oladipo (Orlando Magic); Mason Plumlee (Brooklyn Nets); Miles Plumlee (Phoenix Suns);Marcus Smart (Boston Celtics); Dion Waiters (Cleveland Cavaliers); and Cody Zeller (Charlotte Hornets).

“USA Basketball's Select Teams are critical for getting some of the game's brightest and most promising young players experience at the USA National Team level, and getting them into our pipeline,” said Jerry Colangelo, USA Basketball National Team managing director. “Again this summer, as was done in 2007, 2008, 2010 and 2012, the members of the USA Select Team will play an important role in helping prepare the USA National Team for the 2014 FIBA World Cup.

Smart, McDermott, Oladipo, Harris and the Plumlees were previously reported to be on the team, which will train with Team USA in Las Vegas at the end of the month.

It'll just be from July 28-31, but the young players will have a chance to go up against the country's best. In addition to the Plumlees, this will also reunite ex–Michigan teammates Trey Burke and Tim Hardaway Jr. Couldn't they have invited Tyler Zeller for Cody's sake?
