COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) — Bam Adebayo of the Miami Heat has been added to USA Basketball’s national team roster for the FIBA World Cup, while Andre Drummond of the Detroit Pistons and Montrezl Harrell of the Los Angeles Clippers have withdrawn from the squad.
Adebayo’s addition means the national team has 16 players in advance of training camp that starts Monday in Las Vegas. The U.S. will take 12 players to China later this month for the World Cup, which starts Aug. 31.
Also Thursday (Friday, PHL time), USA Basketball announced the addition of Memphis’ Jaren Jackson Jr. to the select team for training camp. The select team, which will work out against the national team next week in Las Vegas, now has 14 players.
