Here’s some fun summer news: Zion Williamson has been invited to join the Select Team which will compete against Team USA as it preps for the World Cup later this summer in China.

He has the chance - as we guess everyone on the Select Team does - to play his way onto Team USA if he plays well enough.

The media interest is going to be intense so maybe we’ll get to see a bit of it.
