Stephen Curry has played himself back into Team USA mix, Jerry Colangelo tells me. David Lee and Paul George are...
also on the radar. That's obviously good news for Lee and George in All-Star seasons, but especially significant for Curry, who was in the 2010 world championships but did not make the roster for the 2012 Olympics.
He got the $44-million extension before the season, the ankle problems have essentially gone away except for a moment, he has played at an All-Star level for a Warriors team out-playing expectations, and now USA Basketball boss Coangelo says Curry will be among a couple dozen players invited to Las Vegas for a July mini-camp.
Colangelo, asked if Curry is back on the Team USA radar: “He definitely is. He’s never really been off the radar. It’s always been about injuries with him. I think he continues to develop as a player and I plan to invite him this summer.”
