(Reuters) – Oregon guard Eugene Register will start with the national team for the first time on Sunday in an exhibition game against a host of NBA and college basketball teams, coach Dana Altman said on Thursday.
The All-American forward, who played in college for Wisconsin, played in seven games for the Warriors last season.
He scored six points on 2-of-4 shooting.
Altman said the exhibition game was important because he hopes to get Register in more games for practice.
The U.S. won the gold medal at the London Games in 2020.
The games will be held in Denver, Colorado, and Orlando, Florida.
