Surprise Team USA select member helped Wizards set a record

USA Basketball released the roster for its select team ahead of training camp on July 6, and one surprise member of the team might catch the eye of a few Wizards fans. 

Among some of the top young players in the game today is 30-year-old shooting guard John Jenkins, a first-round pick in 2012 who hasn't been in the league since the 2018-19 campaign. 

It was in the middle of that season where Jenkins spent four games with the Wizards, and they weren't insignificant in the grand scheme of that season. Due to a number of different reasons, Washington dealt with a record-setting level of roster turnover in 2018-19 and Jenkins was one of 25 players to suit up and play for the Wizards. 

That ended up being a franchise record, which ultimately led to Washington missing the postseason the year after falling to the Raptors in the first round of the 2018 playoffs. 

It's unclear why Jenkins got the call on a team usually designed to develop the next line of Team USA members, but he'll certainly get a shot to show off his game in exhibitions against the senior team set to go for gold at the Tokyo Olympics later this month.
