LAS VEGAS - Denver Nuggets point guard Ty Lawson is one of the 24 players invited to Team USA’s Basketball offseason mini-camp in July, according to Yahoo! Sports.
Lawson will be one of the seven point guards in the group when camp begins in Las Vegas on July 22-25. The list includes Cleveland Cavilers guard Kyrie Irving and Damian Lillard of the Portland Trailblazers, both of whom won NBA Rookies of the Year honors.
Team USA Basketball officials will take a hard look at the players in the camp for the 2014 World Championships in Spain and 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, according to the website.
Lawson led the Nuggets in scoring and assists last season. Denver lost to the Golden State Warriors in the first round of the NBA Playoffs.
