Posted:

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Milwaukee Bucks forward Jabari Parker has been named to the Select Team of young players that will train against this year's U.S. basketball team.

USA Basketball named 25 players who will make up the 2016 USA Men's Select Team roster Tuesday.

Parker will play in his third NBA season next season. The 6-foot-8 forward averaged 14.1 points, 5.2 rebounds and 1.7 assists in 31.7 minutes per game last season.

Parker has prior experience with USA Basketball. He won a gold medal in both the 2012 U17 World Championship and U16 Championship in 2011.

The Select Team also features a few college players expected to be high NBA draft picks. The team will work against the Americans during their training camp in Las Vegas from July 18-21.
