News: Andre Iguodala, Klay Thompson and David Lee Members of USA Basketball Pool
It would appear as though Stephen Curry will not be the lone member of the Golden State Warriors on the USA Basketball 28-player pool. According to Marc Stein of ESPN.com, Klay Thompson and David Lee also made the cut:
Paul George, Blake Griffin, LaMarcus Aldridge, Kyrie Irving and Damian Lillard are the standouts from that group, but USAB has thrown in a few surprises by naming [DeMarcus] Cousins and Detroit’s blossoming big man Andre Drummond to the pool along with perimeter specialists Bradley Beal,Gordon Hayward, Klay Thompson and Korver, high-flying forward Kenneth Faried, versatile swingman Kawhi Leonard and the experienced David Lee.
What’s more, Andre Iguodala is also part of the group as a returning member. USAB will officially announce the 28-man list on Thursday. Mike Krzyzewski will choose 12-man rosters for the 2014 World Cup and 2016 Olympics from this pool of players.
