Jeremy Lin Named to USA Select Team Roster

New York Knicks guard Jeremy Lin has been named to the USA Basketball Select Team roster. Lin will not be participating in the 2012 Summer Olympics, but he will be challenging those actually going to the games.

The Select Team is a group of young players who will push the guys going to London. During the Olympics training camp in Las Vegas, Lin and the other invitees will give the NBA’s star all they got.

Aside from Lin,  here are the other players named to the roster.

DeMarcus Cousins — Kings
Klay Thompson — Warriors
Kyrie Irving — Cavaliers
John Wall — Wizards
DeMar DeRozan — Toronto
Paul George — Pacers
Gordon Hayward — Jazz
Kawhi Leonard — Spurs
DeJuan Blair — Spurs
Ryan Anderson — Magic
Taj Gibson — Bulls
Derrick Favors — Jazz

If these young guys impress the coaching staff enough, they could one day end up playing for Team USA.
