Sabrina Ionescu heads to Las Vegas to report for Team USA

·1 min read

The WNBA playoffs are still in full swing, with the Las Vegas Aces, Seattle Storm, Chicago Sky, and Connecticut Sun all battling to be this year’s champion.

For many of the WNBA’s best stars who are already eliminated from playoff contention, however, a stop in Las Vegas to report to USA Basketball training camp is next on the agenda.

That list of athletes was revealed on Monday, and it included former Oregon Ducks star and current New York Liberty point guard Sabrina Ionescu.

Ionescu is reporting to camp alongside Diamond DeShields, Natasha Howard, Rhyne Howard, and NaLyssa Smith, among others.

Ionescu had her most successful full WNBA season in 2022, making her first All-Star Game and averaging 17.4 points, 7.1 rebounds, and 6.3 assists while leading the Liberty into the playoffs.

While some of the players still participating in the playoffs will ultimately end up participating in the Olympics in 2024, Ionescu’s selection at this time is a promising sign she will get a chance to help lead Team USA toward an Olympic Gold Medal in Paris in two years.
