2012 USA Select Team Roster Announced: Jeremy Lin Among 13 Rising Stars Selected

Jeremy Lin was one of 13 players named Monday to the USA Select Team, which will help the United States Olympic team in preparation for the 2012 London Olympics.

Lin had surgery on a torn left meniscus in early April and did not return to the court again during the 2011-12 season, missing all of the playoffs as the Knicks were ousted by the Miami Heat. He is a restricted free agent this summer and several within the organization believe Lin will remain with the Knicks next season, but Lin's agent cautioned that a return isn't given.

The full Select Team roster follows, courtesy of USABasketball.com:

Ryan Anderson (Orlando Magic / California)

DeJuan Blair (San Antonio Spurs / Pittsburgh)

DeMarcus Cousins (Sacramento Kings / Kentucky)

DeMar DeRozan (Toronto Raptors / USC)

Derrick Favors (Utah Jazz / Georgia Tech)

Paul George (Indiana Pacers / Fresno State)

Taj Gibson (Chicago Bulls / USC)

Gordon Hayward (Utah Jazz / Butler)

Kyrie Irving (Cleveland Cavaliers / Duke)

Kawhi Leonard (San Antonio Spurs / San Diego State)

Jeremy Lin (New York Knicks / Harvard)

Klay Thompson (Golden State Warriors / Washington State)

John Wall (Washington Wizards / Kentucky)
