USA Basketball: Which Current Players Will Be in Rio?

Okay, so this year's men's United States basketball team wasn't quite as good as the "Dream Team," headlined by players such as Magic Johnson, Larry Bird and Michael Jordan. They were, however, gold medal champions in the London Olympics.

The 1992 "Dream Team" humiliated opponent after opponent, winning games by 50 seemingly on a regular basis. However, the international competition has gotten much better since then and this year's team did not lose a single game.

They went 8-0 in Olympic play and put up scores like 110-63 against Tunisia, 156-73 against Nigeria and 119-86 against Australia. This team was good, just not as good as the '92 squad.

Looking forward to the 2016 Games in Rio, there are many question marks as to who will be on that team, especially if David Stern changes the team to an under-23 one. If there are no changes made to the age rules for the Olympic team, this is who will be coming back for the Rio Games in 2016 from this year's squad.
