Boston Celtics guard Marcus Smart is one of only two rookies on USA Basketball's select team that opens a four-day training with the national team on Monday in Las Vegas. Smart has cemented his place in the USA Basketball pipeline in recent years, especially after helping the under-19 squad win gold at the World Championships in Prague last summer (where he averaged 9.6 points, 2.8 rebounds, 2.4 steals and 2.2 assists in nine games). Smart also attended the national team's mini camp last July in Las Vegas.

It’s natural for readers to filter quotes through each speaker’s perceived agenda, never taking into account that a given source might be telling the absolute truth.The highly cynical, as is their right, simply figure David Falk has to say nice things about Evan Turner because he represents him. And when the Celtics do speak about Turner, they will say nice things about him because they gave him a free agent contract.But Brett Brown falls into a different category. Brett Brown likes Evan Turner and his potential because he just does.
