Pistons star Andre Drummond is among 19 players selected for this summerís U.S. national team roster.

Players will report to training camp in Las Vegas this month, with the roster cut to 12 before the World Cup of Basketball in Spain.

The Americans previously announced a 28-player roster pool in January, though it was planned that players such as two-time Olympic champions LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony and Chris Paul would sit out this summer and perhaps come back at the 2016 Summer Games.

Also missing from the original pool is NBA Finals MVP Kawhi Leonard of San Antonio and Portland All-Star forward LaMarcus Aldridge, who was expected to play this summer.

So the U.S. will be led by Kevin Durant, the NBA scoring champion from the Oklahoma City Thunder who was the MVP of the 2010 World Championship, which has since been renamed the World Cup of Basketball.
