Brook Lopez and 30 other prospective members of Team USA will gather in Las Vegas July 19 for three days of practice under Coach Mike Krzyzewski and the annual USA Basketball Showcase, a Blue-White intra-squad game. Lopez is the only seven-footer on the expanded roster and one of three centers.  The others are Dwight Howard and Kendrick Perkins.

It's possible some of the players Lopez will be practicing against could be his teammates by mid-July.  Among the players who've been invited are free agents LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh, Amare Stoudemire, Carlos Boozer, David Lee and Rudy Gay, all likely Nets' targets in the early part of the month.  Team USA will compete in the FIBA World Championships in Turkey during September.
