USA Basketball Announces Blue vs. White Scrimmage Rosters

Kelvin Kuo/USA TODAY Sports

The USA Basketball minicamp is wrapping up in Las Vegas on Thursday with a scrimmage pitting the USA Blue Team vs. the USA White Team at 10:30 p.m. ET on ESPN2. The official rosters for the scrimmage were announced on Wednesday night:

Five players who weren’t at the minicamp were invited to play in the scrimmage to help fill some of the holes left by players who won’t be participating in the game. Those five players are Arron Afflalo, C.J. Watson, Amir Johnson, Elfrid Payton and Terrence Jones.

Many of the top players won’t be playing in the scrimmage, for various reasons. That group includes LeBron James, Kevin Durant, Stephen Curry, Chris Paul, Russell Westbrook, James Harden, Anthony DavisKevin Love, Kyrie Irving, Paul George and Carmelo Anthony, among others.

Speaking of LeBron:

Golliver also had some good stuff on Durant, who’s working his way back from a third foot surgery. Durant hit on a variety of topics, including his health, next season, his upcoming free agency and the 2016 Olympics.

Elsewhere, CBS Sports’ Ken Berger had some tidbits on Anthony and the New York Knicks’ offseason, as well as Melo’s thoughts on the DeMarcus Cousins/George Karl relationship. Berger also said DeAndre Jordan and Chandler Parsons are bros again after the whole free-agency fiasco.

Finally, the 2016 Olympic squad is expected to be selected in late June 2016, and there will be no alternates, according to Chris Sheridan of Sheridan Hoops.
