Team USA basketball FIBA World Cup roster: See final list of 12 players



The Team USA roster for the upcoming 2019 FIBA World Cup in China has been finalized, and instead of a Dream Team, the Americans will take on the world with just four NBA All-Stars.

Kyle Kuzma was unable to play in Team USA’s exhibition games in Australia due to an ankle issue, and he will be returning to the U.S. for treatment. The move saved coach Gregg Popovich from having to make a final cut, and left him with a 12-man roster led by new Celtics guard Kemba Walker.

  • Kemba Walker
  • Donovan Mitchell
  • Khris Middleton
  • Jayson Tatum
  • Harrison Barnes
  • Jaylen Brown
  • Joe Harris
  • Brook Lopez
  • Mason Plumlee
  • Marcus Smart
  • Myles Turner
  • Derrick White

Team USA will take the floor for its first game in Group E on Sunday, September 1st against the Czech Republic. Team USA will play Turkey on September 3rd, and finish the first stage of group play against Japan on September 5th.
