02:39 PM ET 06.12 | Looking to begin preparations for the 2014 FIBA World Cup, USA Basketball announced 27 players have been invited to participate in July's mini-camp in Las Vegas. While the group doesn't feature many players from the gold medal-winning team from the London Olympics, it's still an impressive bunch that should provide the Americans with the most talented group at next year's international competition. Among the big names featured on the 27-man roster are Indiana's Paul George, Cleveland's Kyrie Irving, Washington's John Wall and New Orleans' Anthony Davis, the only player from the 2012 roster participating in this summer's mini-camp. Joining head coach Mike Krzyzewski on the staff this summer are Chicago's Tom Thibodeau, New Orleans' Monty Williams and Syracuse University's Jim Boeheim.
