Multiple players received a bump from the select team to the main roster, including the Sacramento Kings' budding stars Marvin Bagley III and De'Aaron Fox, as well as San Antonio Spurs guard Derrick White and Brooklyn Nets sharpshooter Joe Harris.
"We're bringing a couple of young players from the select team so we're going to be patient with the rest of the squad because we have plenty of time, we have two weeks to decide who will be the final 12," USA Basketball managing director Jerry Colangelo said.
Team USA will continue its training camp in Los Angeles from August 13-15 before facing Spain in an exhibition contest in Anaheim, Calif., on August 16.
