Derrick Rose and four returnees from the 2012 Olympic men’s basketball champions are among the 19 players selected for this summer’s U.S. national team roster.
Kevin Durant, Kevin Love, James Harden and Anthony Davis were the four holdovers announced Monday, along with new additions DeMar DeRozan of Toronto and Chandler Parsons, who is leaving Houston for Dallas.
Bradley Beal of the Washington Wizards also has been selected. Beal’s backcourt mate in Washington, John Wall, has not been picked but ESPN’s Marc Stein says players like Wall can be added before the July 27 report date.
On USAB conference call today, they'll also surely announce likes of John Wall and others can be added between now and July 27 report date—

Players will report to training camp in Las Vegas this month, with the roster cut to 12 for the World Cup of Basketball in Spain.
Rose is trying to make the team after his NBA season was cut short by another knee operation.
The rest of the roster: Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson (Golden State), Kyrie Irving (Cleveland), Blake Griffin (Clippers), Paul George (Indiana), Damian Lillard (Portland), Gordon Hayward (Utah), DeMarcus Cousins (Sacramento), Andre Drummond (Detroit), Kenneth Faried (Denver) and Kyle Korver (Atlanta).
