Redick mulls Team USA invite amid move to Pels

New Orleans Pelicans guard JJ Redick is considering an invitation to join the depleted USA Basketball roster for the FIBA World Cup in September, he told ESPN on Thursday.

Redick, who spent the past two seasons in Philadelphia, said he is eager to be a part of USA Basketball's training camp, tour and World Cup in China, but he said he's weighing his family's offseason transition to a new city in his decision to make the six-week offseason commitment.

"I'm thrilled beyond belief to be considered but also trying to work through our family's transition to New Orleans," Redick told ESPN.

The Team USA training camp starts Aug. 5 in Las Vegas.

USA Basketball has lost multiple top players for the FIBA World Cup, including several guards -- James Harden, Damian Lillard, CJ McCollum and Eric Gordon. Kyle Lowry wants to play but is rehabilitating after surgery on his left thumb.
