Bradley Beal is officially invited to USA Basketball's Men's National Team training camp, the Washington Wizards announced Monday. 

The training camp will be used to select the roster for the 2019 US squad competing at the 2019 FIBA World Cup in China from August 31 to September 15. 

Training will take place in Las Vegas from August 5-9 for Beal and the 19 other athletes invited to participate at the camp. Beal is the lone representative from the Washington Wizards. 

Previously, Beal was selected to the 2014-16 Team USA player pool and named a finalist for the 2016 squad that would compete at the Rio de Janeiro Olympic Games. He ultimately turned down that opportunity to play with the team. 

This invite is fresh off the heels of Beal's best season as a professional. In the 2018-19 season, the 25-year-old had career-highs in all major statistical categories while averaging 25.6 points throughout the year. He also became the first player in Wizards history to average at least 25 points, five assists and five rebounds in a season.

Below is the full list of players invited to Team USA's Training Camp:

-Harrison Barnes (Sacramento Kings)
-Bradley Beal (Washington Wizards)
-Anthony Davis (New Orleans Pelicans)
