This is a nice honor for the 6th overall pick, who’ll now be participating in workouts against the Men’s National Team ahead of the World Cup of Basketball next month in Spain. They’ll help the USA coaches whittle their 19 man roster down to 12, and they’ll be in the pipeline for potential future inclusion in future Men’s National Team rosters.
Smart has competed for the US in other national competitions, helping the U19 team win a World Championship last year… so his inclusion in the Select team is the next step in a natural progression for him.
