Amile Jefferson has been selected for the USA team that will participate in the World Cup Qualifying games.

The U.S. is sending guys with G League experience and Jefferson has that, although he has gone from a two-way contract to a full-time deal with the Timberwolves.

Having watched him for five years at Duke, Blue Devil fans know that he’s passionate and intense and never takes a play off. He’ll be an asset for coach Stan Van Gundy.
