Harden, Davis ... USA prepares a colossus for the China World Cup

Marc Stein and Adrian Wojnarowski have already revealed 16 of the 18 players they will form for the US national team.


The United States is preparing a new transatlantic to defend the crown won five years ago in the World Cup in Spain. As reported by both Adrian Wojnarowski (ESPN) and Marc Stein (NYT) , the US federation has confirmed the presence of 16 of the 18 players who will participate in the Las Vegas mini-campus in early August. At the conclusion of the training, Gregg Popovich will give the final list of twelve who will go to China. La Asian appointment will be from August 31 to September 15 and the USA is framed in Group E with Turkey, the Czech Republic and Japan.

The United States national team

Anthony Davis (New Orleans Pelicans). James Harden (Houston Rockets). Eric Gordon (Houston Rockets). PJ Tucker (Houston Rockers). Donovan Mitchell (Utah Jazz). Kemba Walker (Charlotte Hornets). Bradley Beal (Washington Wizards). Kyle Kuzma (Los Angeles Lakers). Damian Lillard (Portland Trail Blazers). CJ McCollum (Portland Trail Blazers). Brook Lopez (Milwaukee Bucks). Kevin Love (Cleveland Cavaliers). Jayson Tatum (Boston celtics). Khris Middleton (Milwaukee Bucks). Andre Drummond (Detroit Pistons). LaMarcus Aldridge (San Antonio Spurs) .

With the sure absence of LeBron James, the two free places will have strong competition: Stephen Curry, Draymond Green, Kevin Durant and Klay Thompson (Golden State Warriors) and Kawhi Leonard (Toronto Raptors) They are some of the possible occupants. The participation of the forward of the Raptors is the least likely for his dismal relationship with the current coach: Pops was his coach in the Spurs, team that left last summer in the worst possible way.

Ten other players

Al aside from this list of 18, Pops will have another ten players who will help in training and matches. And among the chosen ones to be part of this group is the predictable next number one of the draft: Zion Williamson, according to Marc Stein. "It's the perfect platform to see how you can compete against (NBA) veterans," Jerry Colangelo, president of USA Basketball told the New York Times reporter.
