The 35 players will convene in Las Vegas for a minicamp scheduled for July 25-27.

For USA Basketball Men's National Team managing director Jerry Colangelo, an early selection of players is a chance to establish a strong title defense.

"As is shown by the return of 29 past national team players, our pipeline is well developed and it is a key factor in our success".

The 2017-20 USA Basketball National Team coaching staff features USA head coach and San Antonio Spurs mentor Gregg Popovich. He is one of just four players in the National Basketball Association to average at least 24 points while shooting at least 38 percent from deep along with Kevin Durant, Stephen Curry and Kyrie Irving, and his 24.9 points per game are the most by a Suns player since Amar'e Stoudemire in 2007-08.

George was a member of the 2016 U.S. Olympic gold medal team, where he played in all eight games (two starts) and averaged 11.3 points (fourth on the team), 4.5 rebounds, 1.9 assists and 1.50 steals, as US went 8-0 in Rio De Janeiro. He won the 2010 FIBA World Cup MVP award, while leading the U.S.to gold. That tournament will be used to qualify teams for the 2020 Tokyo Games which National Basketball Association players will participate. Curry withdrew from the team to rest his ankle and knee that bothered him during the 2016 NBA Playoffs.

Among those selected were Russell Westbrook and Paul George.

Curry and Thompson played on the US team that took gold at the 2014 FIBA World Cup.
