Thunder Guard Victor Oladipo Added to USA Select Team

Posted: Updated:

The Oklahoma City Thunder won't have a player going to Rio for the 2016 Summer Olympics, but it looks like they'll have some representation with Team USA before the Olympic Roster heads off for competition. Guard Victor Oladipo has been added to the USA Select team, and will practice against the national team from July 18-21 in Las Vegas, Nev. 

Oladipo is a new face in the Thunder locker room after joining the team via a trade that sent Serge Ibaka to the Orlando Magic. The Thunder also acquired Ersan Ilyasova and rookie Domantas Sabonis in the deal. 

This will be a much different Olympics for Thunder fans, seeing three OKC players (Russell Westbrook, Kevin Durant and James Harden) were on the national team that won gold in the 2012 Summer Games in London. Westbrook opted to sit out of this year's Olympics shortly after the NBA season ended, but hopes to continue his relationship with USA Basketball moving forward.
