San Antonio Spurs forward Keldon Johnson is set to join 16 other young stars in Las Vegas this summer as he has been named to the 2021 USA Men’s Basketball Select Team Thursday.

But you’re probably asking… What is “The Select Team?”

The Select Team is assembled to train with and against Team USA as the squad prepares for the Tokyo games held in July. Miami Heat head coach Erik Spoelstra was named the Select Team’s head coach earlier this week.

Coach Pop will lead the U.S. men’s team at the Olympics this year in a bid for his first gold medal. The 12 players named to Team USA last month have combined for 37 All-Star appearances and 21 All-NBA selections, headlined by Kevin Durant and Damian Lillard.

In a statement released by the NBA, Team USA’s managing director Jerry Colangelo said the Select Team “continues the legacy established by previous Select teams of helping prepare our USA National Team” for the Olympics.
