ESPN's Chris Sheridan says 22 players are being invited to attend a training camp to get a chance to play for team USA.
Notable players include; Amare Stoudemire, Kobe Bryant, Elton Brand, Dwayne Wade, Paul Pierce, and LeBron James. The big name missing however, is Allen Iverson who despite playing for the 2004 USA Olympic team, was not invited to the training camp.
The training camp will take place in mid-July in Las Vegas. This USA is planning to attend the World Championships in Japan and 15 of the 22 will be part of the team.
"The U.S. team will be coached by Duke's Mike Krzyzewski, who will be assisted by Phoenix Suns head coach Mike D'Antoni, the Portland Trail Blazers' Nate McMillan and Jim Boeheim of Syracuse University."
