Oklahoma City Thunder forward and 2013-14 NBA Most Valuable Player Kevin Durant highlights the 19-man USA Basketball National Team roster, announced Monday.

The team will participate in USA National Team training camp from July 28-Aug. 1 in Las Vegas. The players selected from the camp will participate in the 2014 FIBA World Cup in Spain (Aug. 30-Sept. 14).

 

Noticeably missing is Russell Westbrook, who announced in June that he would not participate in the USA camp this summer. Also not on the list is LeBron James, who you may have heard is coming home. The Thunder does get another participant in the camp in athletic trainer Joe Sharpe.
