Marvin Bagley withdraws from Team USA

Sacramento’s second-year big Marvin Bagley has decided to withdraw from Team USA, per Marc Stein of the New York Times.

Sacramento's Marvin Bagley III, who played well enough in training camp last week to earn a promotion to the @usabasketball senior national team roster, has withdrawn from team activities to focus on the upcoming season, league sources say

After beating out Bam Adebayo and Thaddeus Young to earn an invite from the Select Team to join the national squad in Los Angeles a few days ago, Stein lists Bagley’s decision to focus on the upcoming season as his reason to drop out, just as many other players have previously.
