John Wall, Bradley Beal picked for USA Basketball camp

John Wall and Bradley Beal of the Washington Wizards are among 27 players selected for the USA Basketball national team minicamp to be held next month in Las Vegas.

The camp will be directed by Team USA coach Mike Krzyzewski as he begins preparations for the 2016 Olympics. Other high-profile players slated for the July 21-25 camp include Kyrie Irving on the Cleveland Cavaliers, Paul George of the Indiana Pacers and Klay Thompson of the Golden State Warriors.

Wall and Beal have experience with various USA Basketball squads; Wall was on the USA Men’s Select Team last year.

“It is a privilege to return to USA Basketball as a participant in the 2013 Men’s National Team mini-camp,” Wall said in a statement. “I have gained great experience and grown from my previous stints with USA Basketball and hope to continue in the program moving forward.”
