LAS VEGAS, July 7 (UPI) -- Miami Heat forward LeBron James and New York Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony were named to their third straight U.S. Olympic men's basketball team Saturday.

Also getting the nod from Coach Mike Krzyzewski were three members of the gold-winning 2008 squad -- guards Kobe Bryant of the Los Angeles Lakers, Deron Williams of the Brooklyn Nets and Chris Paul of the Los Angeles Clippers.

Three members of the Western Conference-champion Oklahoma City Thunder -- Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook and James Harden -- were also tapped by Krzyzewski for Team USA.

Rounding out the 12-man roster were Knicks center Tyson Chandler, Clippers forward Blake Griffin, Philadelphia 76ers swingman Andre Iguodala and Minnesota Timberwolves forward Kevin Love.

Left off the team due to injuries were the Heat's Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh, Orlando center Dwight Howard, Chicago Bulls forward Derrick Rose and first-overall pick Anthony Davis of the New Orleans Hornets.

The team will train in Las Vegas and Washington through July 15 before heading to London for the Games.
