(Derrick) Rose on Monday will be one of 19 players at USA Basketball’s five-day minicamp in Las Vegas. The week begins the process that will include a three-day August stint in Chicago and culminate with a 12-man roster traveling to Spain for the FIBA Basketball World Cup from late August to mid-September.
Rose could be racing rust against elite competition. And the point guard position is stacked even with Russell Westbrook’s withdrawal. Golden State’s Stephen Curry, Cleveland’s Kyrie Irving, Portland’s Damian Lillard and Washington’s John Wall certainly will test Rose’s conditioning.
