Shamet invited to USA Basketball training camp

Current Los Angeles Clippers guard and former Park Hill standout Landry Shamet has been invited to a select team comprised of up-and-coming players at the Team USA Basketball training camp next month in Las Vegas.

“Incredibly excited for the opportunity to participate with USA Men’s Basketball this summer!” Shamet wrote in a tweet Thursday morning, June 27. “I can’t wait!”

The team will be coached by San Antonio head coach Gregg Popovich. 

The select team will join a group of 18 other NBA players for training camp from Aug. 5-8 ahead of the FIBA World Cup that will be held from Aug. 21-Sept. 15 in China. The select team, which will also have Marvin Bagley, John Collins and Zion Williamson, will scrimmage against the other squad.

The former Trojan made the fourth-most 3-pointers by a rookie in NBA history last year. A first-round pick by Philadelphia before going to the Clippers in a midseason trade, Shamet averaged 10.9 points for Los Angeles. In the playoffs, he averaged 7.7 points per game.

The Wichita State product total numbers last year included 9.1 points, 1.7 rebounds and 1.5 assists per game. He hit 167 3-pointers last season — 99 of which came in Philadelphia.

He was named to the NBA All-Rookie second team following the season.
