Two months after making the Team USA selection list, Damian Lillard will participate in Team USA’s mini-camp in Las Vegas in July, according to Casey Holdahl, beat reporter for the Portland Trail Blazers:

Lillard, a three-time all-star that was named to the All-NBA first team this season, was in the candidacy pool for Team USA before, in 2014 and 2016, but he exited the process both times through a combination of injury and frustration.

As Casey noted, Trail Blazers shooting guard CJ McCollum was also invited, but will not be able attend due to a scheduling conflict.
