Confirming initial reports, USA Basketball announced the official roster for the 2016 U.S. Olympic men's team on Monday.

 

A well rounded roster that coach Mike Krzyzewski and USA Basketball director Jerry Colangelo are confident will bring home a third straight Olympic gold medal.

 

Bulls guard Jimmy Butler, Pacers forward Paul George are among a group that includes Draymond Green, Klay Thompson, Kyrie Irving, Kevin Durant, Carmelo Anthony and DeMarcus Cousins.

 

Now that the roster is set, the 2016 Olympic team will go through a minicamp in mid-July and then go on a series of exhibitions games around the country before heading to Rio in early August.
