Landry Shamet answers questions from the media during the press conference, on March 15, 2018, in San Diego.

Former Wichita State guard Landry Shamet has been invited to play with Team USA’s Select Team this summer at the team’s camp in Las Vegas in August. First reported by ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, Shamet will join the younger group that includes 2019 first overall draft pick Zion Williamson.

Shamet is coming off of a roller coaster rookie season where he spent time with both the Philadelphia 76ers and Los Angeles Clippers. The former Shocker standout was selected to the NBA All-Rookie Second Team after averaging 9.1 points, 1.7 rebounds, and 1.5 assists per game.

The USA Select Team is a 10-man team that will play against the 18-man USA training camp roster made up of NBA stars. Other notable Select Team members that Shamet will play with include Sacramento Kings forward Marvin Bagley, the second overall pick in the 2018 NBA Draft, and Atlanta Hawks forward John Collins. Former Kentucky standout De’Aaron Fox will also likely draw interest for the team.
