Taj Gibson will train against US Olympic Team

Posted: Updated:

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) -- Rookie of the Year Kyrie Irving of Cleveland and Knicks star Jeremy Lin are among 13 NBA players chosen to scrimmage against the U.S. men's Olympic basketball team in July.
 
   Also picked Monday were: John Wall (Washington), Ryan Anderson (Orlando), DeMarcus Cousins (Sacramento), Paul George (Indiana), Kawhi Leonard and DeJuan Blair (San Antonio), Gordon Hayward and Derrick Favors (Utah), DeMar DeRozan (Toronto), Taj Gibson (Chicago) and Klay Thompson (Golden State).
 
   The young players will report to Las Vegas along with the Americans on July 5 and work out against them from July 6-11. Lin's participation is unclear, as he will be a free agent after his breakout season and may not take part until he signs a new contract during that week.
 
   Former Toronto coach Jay Triano, an assistant with the U.S. 2010 world championship team, and Syracuse assistant Mike Hopkins will serve as co-coaches of the select team.
