Stephen Curry will make his Olympic debut for the USA after he was named on a 12-man roster for this summer's Olympics in Paris.

LeBron James, the NBA all-time leading point scorer, will play at the Games for the first time since London 2012.

Kevin Durant is seeking to make history by becoming the first male athlete to win four gold medals in basketball.

Joel Embiid, the NBA's reigning Most Valuable Player, has also been included.

The USA are aiming to improve on a disappointing fourth place at last year's Basketball World Cup.

They have won 16 Olympic gold medals in the sport and have been the champions at each Games since 2004.

Steve Kerr, of the Golden State Warriors , will be their head coach, assisted by Mark Few (Gonzaga University), Tyronn Lue (LA Clippers) and Erik Spoelstra (Miami Heat).
