Along with the outstanding talent Bradley Beal of St. Louis, and LJ Rose of Houston.

Paterson (N.J.) Catholic freshman guard Kyle Anderson and Seton Hall Prep sophomore guard Sterling Gibbs were among those named to the inaugural USA Developmental National Team.

The 6-foot-5 Anderson is a star on the rise at Paterson Catholic, which this past year won the Passaic (N.J.) County championship and beat St. Anthony of Jersey City in the state playoffs.

Gibbs is a 6-1 point considered among the best in the nation in his class. His older brother, Ashton, plays for Pitt.

The team will first look to capture the gold medal at the inaugural 2009 FIBA Americas U16 Championship June 17-21 in Mendoza, Argentina, and qualify for the 2010 FIBA U17 World Championship.

The invited athletes will train June 6-12 at the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, Colo. The 12-member team that will represent the U.S. this summer will be announced prior to the USA’s June 13 departure for Argentina.

Bold are guys that I like. LJ Rose, I personally dont know much about, but he's a Houston kid. Bradley Beal is probably one of the guys I like the most, but he's a KU and UF battle. McAdoo is the nephew of Bob McAdoo and OU is said to be recruiting him.
