USA Basketball set for summer minicamp, intrasquad exhibition game in Las Vegas

The U.S. national basketball team will return this summer to Las Vegas, where it trained before winning the last two Olympic gold medals.

The Americans will hold a minicamp for about 24 players from July 22-25, capped by an intrasquad exhibition game on July 25 at UNLV's Thomas & Mack Center. The team says Wednesday the roster of players, to be announced later this month, will include "rising NBA stars" and "newly minted All-Stars."

Some of those players could join returning members from last year's Olympic champions next summer in the World Cup of Basketball in Spain, or in the 2016 Summer Games in Brazil.

The Americans have trained seven of the last eight summers in Las Vegas. Tickets for the game go on sale June 13 at www.UNLVtickets.com .
