Team USA is looking to become the first country to capture three consecutive gold medals in the FIBA World Cup, as the team transitions to a new head coach in Gregg Popovich.

Added to the 2019-20 USA National Team roster and participating in training camp are: Kyle Kuzma (Lakers), Brook Lopez (Milwaukee), Paul Millsap (Denver), Donovan Mitchell (Utah), Jayson Tatum (Boston) and P.J.

"We've got an excellent cross-section of veteran USA Basketball and NBA players, as well as some exciting younger players who possess unbelievable versatility". Popovich will be assisted by Golden State's Steve Kerr, Atlanta's Lloyd Pierce and Villanova's Jay Wright this summer. Of those six players in the 2018-19 season, Tatum posted the third-most points per game and third-highest PER, but also recorded the second-to-worst Box Plus-Minus and VORP.
