Lloyd Pierce will replace Nate McMillan as an assistant coach for USA Basketball this summer as they compete in the FIBA World Cup in China.

McMillan withdrew due to scheduling conflicts. 

"It's an honor to receive this opportunity to represent our country and to work with such great coaches and staff. My family and I are excited about and committed to enjoying this journey," said Pierce.

Pierce joins Steve Kerr and Jay Wright under Gregg Popovich's coaching staff.
