“Since USA Basketball started the men’s national team program in 2006, we have understood the necessity of fluidity within the program and the importance of having a deep national team roster that features both young and veteran standout NBA players,” said USA Basketball Men’s National Team Managing Director Jerry Colangelo

“The six players we added today are all outstanding players in their own right, and along with the other players who will attend the World Cup Team training camp, will offer Coach (Gregg) Popovich and his staff some remarkable athleticism and versatility.”
