LAS VEGAS (AP) — USA Basketball has picked its lineup of coaches to assist Gregg Popovich at the men's national team minicamp in Las Vegas this month.

Of the nine picks, seven are NBA assistant coaches: Golden State's Mike Brown, Miami's Dan Craig, Utah's Alex Jensen, Boston's Jay Larranaga, Dallas' Jamahl Mosley, San Antonio's Ime Udoka and Portland's David Vanterpool.

The other two slots went to top college head coaches, Villanova's Jay Wright and Gonzaga's Mark Few.

Few grew up in Creswell. He graduated high school there in 1981 before attending the University of Oregon.

The camp is July 25-27, with practices on the final two days. It's the first time the national team candidates will be together for a camp in advance of next year's world championships and the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

There are 35 players on the 2018-20 national team roster, including 11 who won Olympic gold in 2016.
