Former Oklahoma State standout Marcus Smart is participating in the United States men’s national basketball team’s camp for the FIBA World Cup.

During Thursday’s practice session, the Boston Celtics forward hits a half-court shot from his back at the Lakers training facility.

On Wednesday, Smart said the team’s 36-17 scrimmage loss to a Jeff Van Gundy-coached team of G League and overseas players was “embarrassing.” The U.S. faces Spain on Friday night.

The FIBA World Cup is set to tip off Saturday, Aug. 31, with the Americans playing their first game the following day against the Czech Republic.
