UK signees Shai Gilgeous-Alexander and Nick Richards have been chosen to play for the World Select Team in next month’s Nike Hoop Summit, joining future teammates Quade Green and Jarred Vanderbilt, who had already been selected for the U.S. squad.
Gilgeous-Alexander (Canada) and Richards (Jamaica) are part of a 12-player team of foreign-born prospects who are 19 years old or younger. The squad will also include class of 2019 prospect RJ Barrett, the No. 1 recruit in that group and a Canada native.
UK targets Mohamed Bamba and Kevin Knox are also on the U.S. team. The Nike Hoop Summit game will be played April 7 in Portland, Ore.
