Ben Gordon: Doubts continue whether the NBA guard to join the squad
Mersey Tigers' Myles Hesson has been called into Great Britain's pre-Olympic training camp in Houston.
The Birmingham-born forward has been included as doubts grow about the participation of NBA guard Ben Gordon.
Hesson confirmed via his twitter account that he is flying out to the United States to join the camp on Sunday.
"Can't believe it but I'm flying out to Houston in the morning for GB Mens Training camp. Honoured and blessed," Hesson tweeted.
He will join up with a squad still missing the elusive Gordon, the London-born Detroit Pistons star who has spoken about playing for Britain for several years but is yet to appear in a game.
It was thought that the Olympics would finally be the spur for him to get involved after he was called into the squad, but he has delayed his arrival in Houston and - with coach Chris Finch now making some late call-ups to add numbers - speculation is growing that he may not show up at all.
