ATLANTA (CBS46) -

Atlanta Hawks guard Kyle Korver was named to the 2014-2016 USA Men's National Championship team pool Thursday.

Korver joins 27 other players who will potentially represent the U.S. on the 2014 U.S. World Championship Team, and the 2016 U.S. Olympic Team.

"It's an honor to have the opportunity to represent my country," Korver said. "I'm excited to be a part of the national team program and will be ready to compete this summer."

Korver is the fourth Hawks player to represent USA Basketball, after Joe Johnson, Steve Smith and Jason Terry.
