New Orleans Pelicans forwards Anthony Davis and Ryan Anderson are expected to participate in the Team USA's mini camp scheduled for July 22-25 in Las Vegas, two league sources confirmed Thursday. Davis, the No. 1 overall pick last year, played on Team USA that won a gold medal at the 2012 London Olympic Games. Anderson has never played for Team USA, but he could earn a spot because of his perimeter shooting ability. USA Basketball Chairman Jerry Colangelo announced Thursday that Duke's Mike Krzyzewski will return as head coach of the USA Basketball Men’s National Team leading up to the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Team USA's first international competition in preparation for the 2016 Olympics will come next year in the FIBA Basketball World Cup ( Aug. 30-Sept. 14) in Spain. If necessary, the Team USA would participate in the 2015 FIBA Americas Olympic Qualifying Tournament.
