This is Grant’s second stint with USA Basketball. He was an assistant on the 2008 U-18 team.

“It is truly an honor to represent our country as a member of the USA Basketball U18 coaching staff,” Grant said in a press release. “I look forward to working with coach Self and coach Manning and preparing our young men to qualify for next year’s U19 World Cup. I have tremendous respect for Bill Self and the success he has had at every stop in his career. I am excited about this opportunity to work with him and help us win the FIBA Americas Championship. I have known Danny for several years and what he has been able to achieve as a player and now a coach is admirable. I respect him as a man and a coach, and look forward to being on this staff with him.”
