COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – Bam Adebayo of the Miami Heat has been added to the list of the USA Basketball national team for the FIBA World Cup, while Andre Drummond of the Detroit Pistons and Montrezl Harrell of the Los Angeles Clippers have retired from the team.
The incorporation of Adebayo means that the national team has 16 players before the training camp that begins Monday in Las Vegas. The United States will take 12 players to China later this month for the World Cup, which begins on August 31.
Also on Thursday, USA Basketball announced the incorporation of Jaren Jackson Jr. from Memphis to the team selected for training camp. The select team, which will face the national team next week in Las Vegas, now has 14 players.
