USA Basketball announced a 13-member Men’s Select Team Tuesday and the roster includes Phoenix Suns center Miles Plumlee.

The Select Team will train July 28 through July 31 in Las Vegas to help Team USA prepare for their appearance in the FIBA World Cup in Spain in August.

Plumlee, 25, just completed his second season in the NBA and first with the Suns. The 6-foot-10 center started 79 games and averaged 8.1 points and a team-leading 7.8 rebounds per game. He also led Phoenix with 90 blocked shots.

“USA Basketball’s Select Teams are critical for getting some of the game’s brightest and most promising young players experience at the USA National Team level, and getting them into our pipeline,” said Jerry Colangelo, USA Basketball National Team managing director. “Again this summer, as was done in 2007, 2008, 2010 and 2012, the members of the USA Select Team will play an important role in helping prepare the USA National Team for the 2014 FIBA World Cup.

“Being chosen for the Select Team is an honor and an important step in becoming involved in USA Basketball’s National Team program in the future. In the past, current national team players like Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving, Kevin Love, Derrick Rose, Russell Westbrook, as well as many other outstanding players got their USA National Team start through the Select Team.”

Plumlee will be joined on the squad by his younger brother Mason, who just completed his rookie season with the Brooklyn Nets.
