Two For The National Team Show

This isn't official, because USA Basketball has yet to make a formal annoncement, but sources say the 76ers' Andre Iguodala and Thaddeus Young are on a list of about 24 players to be invited to the U.S. National Team's mini-camp July 22-25 in Las Vegas.

The camp will involve two full days of training and a showcase intra-squad exhibition game at the Thomas & Mack Center.

Toronto raptors coach Jay Triano and NBA assistants Tyrone Corbin, Utah; Dave Cowens, Detroit; Kenny Gattison, New Orleans and Jerry Sichting, Minnesota will work with the players, helping identify talent for future National Team competitions.
