New York Knicks guard Immanuel Quickley is reportedly in contention to play for the USA Basketball select team that will practice and scrimmage against the Olympic team next month in Las Vegas.

The news was first reported by Marc Berman of the New York Post.

USA Basketball will open training camp on July 6 ahead of the Tokyo Olympics. The final 12-man Olympic roster was revealed on Monday, with Kevin Durant, Damian Lillard, Bradley Beal and Jayson Tatum among those set to play in the games.

To prepare for the event, the Olympic roster will compete against the select team, which will consist of younger players. Minnesota Timberwolves guard Anthony Edwards and Cleveland Cavaliers guard Darius Garland are among those expected to play on the select team.

The team will be coached by Erik Spoelstra of the Miami Heat.

The U.S. will be among five countries that will play 4-5 exhibition games in Las Vegas prior to heading to Japan for the Olympics. They will face Nigeria beginning on July 10 with two games against Australia to follow and one apiece versus Argentina and Spain.

Preliminary play in the Olympics, which will feature 12 teams across three groups, will begin July 25 and run through Aug. 2. The quarterfinals will start on Aug. 3 and consist of the top two teams in each group from the preliminary phase.

The semifinals will take place on Aug. 5 with the gold and bronze medal games on Aug. 7.
