McGee impressed USA Basketball head Jerry Colangelo and several of his advisers with his play at the Las Vegas Summer League, averaging 17.3 points, 6.3 rebounds and a league-best 4.0 blocks.
McGee is one of 23 young NBA players to participate in the mini-camp. They will practice on Thursday and Friday, then play a Blue and White intra-squad game at the Thomas & Mack Center on Saturday.
McGee averaged 6.5 points, four rebounds and one block per game during his rookie season with the Washington Wizards.
