Miami coach Jim Larrañaga and many of the biggest names in coaching will be on hand to give the ultimate basketball enthusiast the exclusive opportunity to experience being a member of the USA National Team during the inaugural USA Basketball Fantasy Camp from July 23-25 in Las Vegas.

“This is about being a part of the ultimate team and experiencing what it feels like to represent your country,” said Jerry Colangelo, USA Basketball Chairman. “The Fantasy Camp will provide a select few with a real-life opportunity to be a part of the preparation for 2016.”
Included in the fantasy schedule, participants will have access to watch a session of the private annual USA Basketball National Team training camp as the NBA’s elite players train for future international competitions. The culmination of the three days will be the camp’s championship game and medal ceremony held as part of the USA Basketball Showcase in front of a crowd at the Thomas & Mack Center.
All participants in the fantasy camp will join the USA Basketball National Team members as guests at the world famous Wynn Las Vegas.
