Having recently competed against some of the best young players in the world, Doug McDermott now gets a chance to see where his game stacks up against some of the best players from this country.
The Creighton forward and Oklahoma State's Marcus Smart are the only collegiate players invited to participate in next week's U.S. National team mini-camp in Las Vegas. The other 28 players invited are from the NBA, including three of the past four No. 1 draft picks and the last two rookies of the year.
