The Los Angeles Sparks received tremendous news involving one of their players ahead of Wednesday night’s matchup against the Minnesota Lynx.

USA Basketball announced that rookie forward Cameron Brink will be a part of the Women’s 3x3 Women’s National Team for the 2024 Summer Olympics in Paris, France next month. Brink will be a part of an outstanding team that features Hailey Van Lith, Cierra Burdick, and Rhyne Howard.

Brink is excited about the opportunity to play in the Summer Games after participating in training camp in Springfield, Massachusetts. 

“I’m so grateful to be selected and it’s an honor to represent the United States at the Paris Olympics this year,” she said via the Sparks website. “The 3×3 training camp experience helped me with my transition into the league, and now I can’t wait to start preparing for the games with Cierra, Rhyne and Hailey.”

The No. 2 overall pick in the 2024 WNBA Draft played in the 2023 FIBA 3x3 World Cup where Team USA won the gold medal. Brink for her efforts was named the MVP. The former Stanford standout is having a solid rookie season for the Sparks, averaging 8.8 points, 5.4 rebounds, and 2.1 assists per game.

Brink has been a good rim protector/defender thus far in the WNBA, ranking third in the league with 2.6 blocks per game. Sparks fans will be able to watch Brink and the rest of Team USA, starting on July 30 when 3x3 hoops action officially tips off.
