SAN FRANCISCO—USA Basketball has released the list of players confirmed to attend the three-day 2015 Las Vegas minicamp. The camp also serves as a tryout for the United States Olympic Men’s Basketball Team.
With four of their players attending, the Golden State Warriors is the most represented team for the camp roster. Attending Warriors players include Klay Thompson, Harrison Barnes, Draymond Green, and 2015 NBA MVP Stephen Curry. Thompson and Barnes were additions to the Team USA 2014-2016 roster due to their performance as “NBA standouts.”This will be the first time competing for a spot on the Olympic team for all four players.
The 12-man 2016 Olympic team will be selected from the 34 invited players. USA Basketball chairman and managing director Jerry Colangelo and team USA coach Mike Krzyzewski will be in charge of making the final decision on who will make the cut for the team.
In a statement about the minicamp experience, Colangelo said, “With this being a summer where we do not have an official competition that we need to prepare for, this year’s minicamp is an opportunity to continue and expand the brotherhood and camaraderie that has been built.”
Other elite players invited to attend the camp include LeBron James from the Cleveland Cavaliers, Anthony Davis from the New Orleans Pelicans and Blake Griffin from the Los Angeles Clippers.
Eight of the players—including Davis, James, and Griffin—were members of the 2012 Olympic team, and won gold medals. Eleven players attending the 2015 minicamp were also members of the 2014 team that participated at the first FIBA World Cup event in Spain, where they won gold medals.
The minicamp in Las Vegas will take place from August 11 to 13.
The list of the full 34 players is available on USA Basketball’s official website.
