The 22-year-old Brown's addition to the Stars & Stripes' group comes just a day after Marcus Smart was added to Team USA's camp roster. And with Jayson Tatum and Kemba Walker already confirmed to be in USA Basketball's camp, there's going to be a ton of Green represented at USA Basketball's training camp held in Las Vegas.
Brown receives the nod to train with Team USA after an up-and-down 2018-19 season that came with 13 points and 4.2 rebounds per game, and with Brown shooting 46.5 percent from the field. Drafted by Boston with the No. 3 overall pick in 2016, Brown has averaged 11.2 points per game and shot 46.2 percent through the first three seasons of his NBA career.
The 2019 FIBA World Cup begins on Aug. 31, while the USA will play their first game of the tournament on Sept. 1.
The United States has won gold in back-to-back World Cups dating back to 2010.
