Changes made to Team USA roster
Team USA continued preparations for their upcoming World Cup campaign on Friday night as Gregg Popovich's men defeated a Select USA Team 97-78.
While Team USA looked impressive throughout the routine win, Derrick White and Marvin Bagley III managed to impress for the Select team, and the young duo will replace Thaddeus Young and Bam Adebayo on the senior roster.
ESPN is also reporting that a number of senior stars are doubts heading into next week due to recurring injury issues:
The team now has 17 players on the roster, with injured guards Kyle Lowry (thumb) and Marcus Smart (calf) to be reexamined early next week. There probably will be another cut before next weekend.
Popovich will trim down his roster to just 12 players ahead of the World Cup's start on September 1st.
White centers the camp following a season that he averaged 9.9 points and 5.0 assists per game. Meanwhile, Bagley III averaged 14.9 points and 7.6 rebounds during his debut season in Sacramento.
