Chandler Parsons Invited to Team USA Olympic Camp
HOUSTON (CBS Houston) - Rockets forward Chandler Parsons has been invited to attend the USA Basketball Select Team camp this July. Kurt Helin of ProBasketball Talk, who joined MaD Radio on SportsRadio 610 Thursday, said Parsons is a natural fit for Team USA.
“His ability to get up and down the floor and shoot from distance really fits the international style of play,” Helin said of Parsons.
Mike Kryzyzewski will return as coach of the U.S. men’s basketball team for the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro. 25 players will attend the minicamp, which will take place July 22-25 in Las Vegas, with the hopes of making the 2016 Olympic team.
