USA Basketball announced Friday it has cut Portland Trail Blazers guard Damian Lillard, Dallas Mavericks forward Chandler Parsons, Atlanta Hawks forward Kyle Korver and Utah Jazz forward Gordon Hayward from the FIBA World Cup roster.
The four players are the final cuts before the team leaves for Spain, and came four hours after the U.S. defeated Puerto Rico 112-83 in an exhibition game at Madison Square Garden in New York.
The final roster consists of Cleveland Cavaliers guard Kyrie Irving, Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry and forward Klay Thompson, Houston Rockets guard James Harden, Chicago Bulls guard Derrick Rose, Toronto Raptors forward DeMar DeRozan, Denver Nuggets forward Kenneth Faried, New Orleans Saints forward Anthony Davis, Sacramento Kings forward Rudy Gay and center DeMarcus Cousins, Detroit Pistons center Andre Drummond and Brooklyn Nets center Mason Plumlee.
The team has been in flux a bit after Indiana Pacers forward Paul George suffered a broken leg during a team scrimmage earlier this month, and then Oklahoma City Thunder forward Kevin Durant pulled out citing exhaustion.
The U.S. opens group play Aug. 30 against Finland, and the final will be played Sept. 14.
