The team rosters for Thursday’s 2015 USA Basketball Showcase in Las Vegas were an announced Wednesday and feature 19 NBA players divided into two squads, USA Blue, and USA White.


The Showcase, a Blue-White exhibition game played under international rules, will tip-off Thursday, 7:30 p.m. PDT, at UNLV’s Thomas & Mack Center.  Tickets for the 2015 USA Basketball Showcase start at $15, and can still be purchased by calling 702-739-FANS or online at www.UNLVtickets.com.

“This year’s Showcase will be much more of an off-season type of all-star game,” said USA Basketball chairman and National Team managing director Jerry Colangelo. “With no official international competition on our schedule this summer, and knowing that some of the players were coming off of injuries while others were not yet ready to actively play in a game, we made this Showcase voluntary and not a requirement. I’m excited to see who steps up in the Showcase.”

The USA Blue Team, coached by USA National Team assistant coach Monty Williams (Oklahoma City Thunder), includes Harrison Barnes (Golden State Warriors); Bradley Beal (Washington Wizards); DeMar DeRozan (Toronto Raptors); Andre Drummond (Detroit Pistons); Kenneth Faried (Denver Nuggets); Rudy Gay (Sacramento Kings); Amir Johnson (Boston Celtics); Victor Oladipo (Orlando Magic); and Elfrid Payton (Orlando Magic).

The USA White Team, coach by USA National Team assistant coach Tom Thibodeau, features Arron Afflalo (New York Knicks); Michael Carter-Williams (Milwaukee Bucks); DeMarcus Cousins (Sacramento Kings); Draymond Green (Golden State Warriors); Blake Griffin (Los Angeles Clippers); Terrance Jones (Houston Rockets); Kawhi Leonard (San Antonio Spurs); Mason Plumlee (Portland Trail Blazers); Klay Thompson (Golden State Warriors); and C.J. Watson (Orlando Magic).

The Showcase rosters include members of the USA National Team and five additional invited NBA players (Afflalo, Johnson, Jones, Payton, and Watson) who will participate in just the exhibition game portion of the minicamp.

The 2014-16 USA Basketball National Team coaching staff features USA head coach and Duke University’s Naismith Hall of Fame mentor Mike Krzyzewski. Serving as assistant coaches are Jim Boeheim (Syracuse University), Thibodeau and Williams.
