The 19 players on the roster will train all week before a Friday night exhibition game. The roster could be cut to 15 players after camp, and the final 12 will be selected before the team leaves next month for the World Cup in Spain. It could be a stepping-stone to represent the U.S. at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro. “He’s a big, strong, young man with a terrific future, and he’s got a great attitude to go along with it,” U.S. managing director Jerry Colangelo said of Drummond recently. “Because size is important in international play, his rebounding, his shot-blocking ability makes him a candidate.

The Indiana Pacers announced Monday they have signed free agent Rodney Stuckey.
