USA Hoops Team Takes First Steps On Road To London 2012

July 20, 2009: NBA 2009 rookie of the year Derrick Rose, 2008 NBA rookie of the year Kevin Durant and 2009 No. 1 NBA draft pick Blake Griffin are among 23 players who will assemble in Las Vegas this week as the USA Basketball Men's National Team begins the journey to defend the gold medal it won at the 2008 Olympics in Beijing. The 2012 Summer Games will be held in London July 27-Aug. 12, 2012.

The group will take part in a three-day mini-camp, with July 23-24 anchored by practice sessions at Valley High School and July 25 featuring USA Basketball Showcase, an intrasquad game at the Thomas & Mack Center on the campus of UNLV.

Toronto Raptors head coach Jay Triano, Utah Jazz assistant coach Tyrone Corbin, Detroit Pistons assistant Dave Cowens, former New Orleans Hornets assistant Kenny Gattison and Minnesota Timberwolves assistant Jerry Sichting, will serve as the staff for the 2009 USA Basketball Men's National Team mini-camp.

Twenty of the expected mini-camp participants have prior USA Basketball team experience, including Durant, Rose, Jerryd Bayless, Jeff Green, Devin Harris, Andre Iguodala, David Lee and O.J. Mayo. Other notables include Greg Oden, Kevin Love and Kyle Korver.

"While we look to continue to build continuity within the USA National Team program and continue to improve, in 2009 we will get a look at some of the top young NBA players who haven't been involved in USA Basketball at the top national program level previously," Jerry Colangelo, chairman for USA Basketball, said in a statement. "Although some of these players have represented USA Basketball in the past, this is their opportunity to be considered for the next generation of players who will help make up the USA Basketball National program."
