Toronto Raptors guard DeMar DeRozan was one of 27 young players invited to attend USA Basketball's minicamp in July, it was announced Wednesday.
DeRozan averaged 18.1 points, 3.9 rebounds and 2.5 assists in 2012-13, all career highs, while playing in all 82 games.
The last two rookie of the year winners — Cleveland's Kyrie Irving and Portland's Damian Lillard — were invited, as was Kawhi Leonard, currently thriving with San Antonio in the NBA Finals.
In addition to Irving, Indiana's Paul George and Jrue Holiday of Philadelphia were the other all-stars to earn an invitation.
The players will train from July 22-25 in Las Vegas, capped by an intrasquad exhibition game on July 25 at the Thomas & Mack Center. They'll be coached by Mike Krzyzewski and his assistants Jim Boeheim, Monty Williams and Tom Thibodeau.
The camp has traditionally helped USA Basketball assess which players to move forward with in subsequent international tournaments.
Also chosen Wednesday: Mike Conley (Memphis), Anthony Davis and Ryan Anderson (New Orleans Pelicans); Ty Lawson and Kenneth Faried (Denver); Harrison Barnes and Klay Thompson (Golden State); John Wall and Bradley Beal (Washington); DeMarcus Cousins (Sacramento); Greg Monroe and Andre Drummond (Detroit); Derrick Favors and Gordon Hayward (Utah); Taj Gibson (Chicago); DeAndre Jordan (Los Angeles Clippers); Chandler Parsons (Houston); Larry Sanders (Milwaukee); Dion Waiters and Tyler Zeller (Cleveland); and Kemba Walker (Charlotte).
