Kenneth Faried Named to the US National Team Roster


Denver Nuggets forward Kenneth Faried is one of 19 players chosen to participate in the U.S. National Team’s training camp.

The training  camp takes place in Las Vegas later this month, after which the roster will be trimmed to 12 players who will represent the U.S. in the 2014 FIBA Basketball World Cup in Spain in August and September.

The full 19-man roster is listed below:

  • Bradley Beal – Washington Wizards
  • DeMarcus Cousins – Sacramento Kings
  • Stephen Curry – Golden State Warriors
  • Anthony Davis – New Orleans Pelicans
  • DeMar DeRozan – Toronto Raptors
  • Andre Drummond – Detroit Pistons
  • Kevin Durant – Oklahoma City Thunder
  • Kenneth Faried – Denver Nuggets
  • Paul George – Indiana Pacers
  • Blake Griffin – L.A. Clippers
  • James Harden – Houston Rockets
  • Gordon Hayward – Utah Jazz
  • Kyrie Irving – Cleveland Cavaliers
  • Kyle Korver – Atlanta Hawks
  • Damian Lillard – Portland Trailblazers
  • Kevin Love – Minnesota Timberwolves
  • Derrick Rose – Chicago Bulls
  • Chandler Parsons – Dallas Mavericks
  • Klay Thompson – Golden State Warriors

 

This is a huge honor for Faried and, even though making the final 12-man roster will be tough, just being part of this group of players is really impressive.

Good luck to Manimal as he represents the United States and the Denver Nuggets on the national stage!
