Booker and Randle will train alongside the Olympic Team, acting as the young guns in scrimmages against America's best.  You could call them a JV team, but they'd be the best JV team in the world. The addition to the Select Team is an exceptional reward for a player who didn't have it easy during his first full year in the NBA.  On a terrible team with a coach that public scrutinized his attitude, Randle still managed to average 11.3 points and 10.2 rebounds per game.  He finished 10th in the NBA in rebounds, 15th in double-doubles.
