Anthony Randolph, who starred at LSU for one season in 2007-08, was named Sunday to the final 12-man roster that will represent the United States in the 2015 Pan-American Games, a competition that begins July 21 in Toronto, Canada.
Currently playing professionally for Russian squad Lokomotiv, Randolph previously logged six seasons in the NBA after the Golden State Warriors made him a late-lottery pick in the 2008 NBA Draft.
He and the 11 others selected from age 20-35, including Louisiana-Lafayette forward Shawn Long, will resume training in Chicago this week at the Bulls' practice facility before heading north to compete.
The head coach of Team USA is Gonzaga sideline boss Mark Few.
During his lone campaign in Baton Rouge, Randolph was a terror, averaging 15.6 points, 8.5 rebounds, 1.2 assists, 1.1 steals and 2.3 blocks en route to making one Freshman All-America team.
The Dallas native was a five-star prospect in the 2007 recruiting class and the nation's No. 11 player per Scout coming out of Woodrow Wilson High School.
