USA Basketball U19 World Championship Training Camp Report June 17, 2013 The former McDonald's All-American had a difficult time demonstrating his considerable talent-level consistently here in Colorado Springs, never really getting into a rhythm seemingly and eventually being released from the roster after the first round of cuts.

Players in Dunn's mold—think Iman Shumpert—are highly coveted by NBA teams, and he'll likely be tracked closely by scouts early in his college career. [Read Full Article]
