Though George has been practicing with the Indiana Pacers for three weeks, he has yet to decide if he’ll play this season. But he told NBA.com’s Steve Aschburner on Wednesday that his summer plans won’t change whether or not he plays between now and the end of the Pacers’ season. And when asked about the mini-camp, he was clear that he intends to be there.
“I’m in,” George said. “Of course.”
“The day it happened,” George added, referencing his injury, “right after, I told them I looked forward to continuing on with USA basketball.”
The mini-camp is not a tryout. Practices will be light compared to those that take place in the weeks before a competition. USA Basketball Managing Director Jerry Colangelo and head coach Mike Krzyzewski know what these guys can do. But they do want to get in front of their players before the summer of 2016.
