Julius Randle -- one of the newest Knicks -- has been added to USA Basketball's training camp roster for the FIBA World CUP, SNY's Ian Begley confirmed on Tuesday. The Athletic's Shams Charania was first on the report.
Randle, along with Celtics F Jaylen Brown, were the latest additions to the roster after many others backed out. Many are focusing on the upcoming season and don't want to participate in the tournament.
Players like Anthony Davis, James Harden, Tobias Harris, CJ McCollum, and even Zion Williamson have all backed out. Bradley Beal does have a solid excuse in his wife expecting their second son during the time of the World Cup.
