Rumor: Jeremy Lin added to US Select Team

Jeremy Lin was added is rumored to be added to Team USA's select team, which will scrimmage against the senior team starting on July 6 before they defend their Redeem Team Beijing games gold medal in the London Olympics. The other PGs on the select team are Kyrie Irving and John Wall.

The entire rumored select team roster:
DeMarcus Cousins — Kings
Jeremy Lin — Knicks
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 true, this opportunity will be good for Lin. While not play-off experience, competing with the select team against Team USA will give Lin high-level practice to catch up on some of the season and post-season he missed with his knee injury. Joining the select team is the first step to joining the senior national team.
