Filling Out USA Basketball's Ideal Roster for Olympics
Rob Schumacher-USA TODAY

Around this time last year, USA Basketball was gearing up to capture a second consecutive gold medal at the Summer Olympics in London. 

One year later, stars from Mike Krzyzewski's championship squad are basking in the glow of NBA superstardom. However, not all of their spots on the roster are entirely safe.

The league's most promising talent is taking to Las Vegas to participate in a minicamp with eyes on usurping roster spots from Team USA's established members. 

Two important housekeeping notes before we get started:

1. This roster was compiled with the hypothetical framework in mind that international basketball could be played this summer. This is not a look ahead to 2016; it would be far too difficult to project a roster three years in advance. 

2. Kobe Bryant was left off the team after stating that the 2012 Olympics would be his last.
