USA Basketball has announced its 28-player pool for the next three summers which features a number of the top stars in the NBA.

The pool was selected by USAB chairman Jerry Colangelo and coach Mike Krzyzewski, with headline names including the likes of LeBron James and Carmelo Anthony.

Derrick Rose and Russell Westbrook are also included despite being ruled out with injury for a significant period over the past year, while DeMarcus Cousins makes up part of the newcomers.

Colangelo and Krzyzewski will choose a 12-man roster for both the World Cup, which starts in August this year, and the 2016 Olympics in Brazil.
