Team USA 2023 FIBA Basketball World Cup roster: NBA All-Stars, award winners suiting up

Team USA is the odds-on favorite to win 2023 FIBA Basketball World Cup, and for good reason.

32 nations from four federations will compete for 2024 Olympic qualification and a World Cup title starting on August 25.

This is the 19th edition of the FIBA Basketball World Cup, and the second to feature 32 nations, having expanded from 24 teams in 2019. 

Team USA (-112 to Win Outright), which finished seventh in the 2019 FIBA World Cup, begins its redemption run as the heavy favorite to win this tournament. 

They begin play on August 26th against New Zealand at 8:40 AM ET. The U.S. won the 2010 and 2014 tournaments and are tied with the former Yugoslavia for the most gold medals overall in FIBA World Cup history with five. They lead all nations with 12 total medals.

Who is USA’s head coach?

Steve Kerr, who won five NBA championships as a player and has led the Golden State Warriors to four NBA titles as a coach, is team USA’s head coach.

USA’s key players

Jalen Brunson

Brunson, one of three former Villanova Wildcats on the squad, will be the team’s primary ball handler and has been labeled the team’s leader by Kerr. He has gone for double digit points in each of the team’s three pre-World Cup exhibition wins so far, highlighted by a team-high 21 points in a 98-88 win over FIBA No. 1 Spain.

Anthony Edwards

Edwards, the No. 1 pick in the 2020 NBA Draft out of Georgia, made his first all-star team this past season, and his explosiveness has been on display in camp and the exhibition games, where he has averaged nearly 14 points in the three USA victories.

Mikal Bridges

Bridges, another former Villanova player, came on last season after his trade from the Phoenix Suns to the Brooklyn Nets. He is a 3-and-D who can score in bunches.
