Congrats are in order once again for Derek Willis, now one of 16 players invited to USA’s Team training camp for the AmeriCup. It will take place at the Univeristy of Houston on August 17-24. He will then fight for a spot on the final 12-man roster, need I remind you he made the 16 player cut with only NBA G-league players being invited. They will travel to Uruguay to begin play after the final roster is set.
This will be just one more chance to see Willis shine before being officially on an NBA roster. Earlier this offseason, just after the draft Derek was signed to the Detroit Pistons on a one-year deal. This will have no impact on his signing though. He gets the chance to go out there and get ready for his NBA opportunity before the season begins. What more could a guy ask for right?
Go Derek Go.
