Pistons’ All-Star center Andre Drummond will participate in Team USA’s training camp in August, where it will be decided if he will be able to crack the team’s 12-man roster for the FIBA World Cup in China later this year:

Drummond is no stranger to representing the United States for FIBA, as he won a gold medal as a member of the team back in 2014, following just his second season in the NBA.
Drummond will be competing with fellow big men to earn a spot on the roster, with the likes of Anthony Davis, Kevin Love, LaMarcus Aldridge, Paul Millsap, and Brook Lopez all reportedly planning to attend the camp.
The 25-year-old recently put together his best season as a pro, with impressive averages of 17.3 points, 15.6 rebounds, and 3.4 stocks en route to being a key component in bringing the Pistons back to the playoffs for the first time since 2016.
