Indiana Pacers center Myles Turner was named to the USA Men's Select Team on Tuesday morning. The select team is a top rated group of younger players who get to train with Team USA's Olympic team before they head to Rio next month.

Turner joins an elite list of the NBA's next generation of stars, including D'Angelo Russell and Julius Randle.

The Select Team trains with many of the same coaches as the top-level team as well, including San Antonio Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich.

The camp for the team is held in Las Vegas, Nevada, and will take place from July 18-21.

Congrats to Myles!
