Trail Blazers guard CJ McCollum will not participate in USA Basketball’s upcoming training camp. According to Yahoo Sports’ Chris Haynes, McCollum will skip the camp in order to prepare for the 2019-20 regular season.

The training camp is in place to prepare Team USA for the FIBA World Cup. The 2019 competition will take place in China during the early part of September.

McCollum was featured in 70 regular season games for the Trail Blazers last season. He recorded averages of 21.0 points and 3.0 assists during that stretch.
