LAS VEGAS (AP) -- LeBron James, Kobe Bryant and three other Olympic gold medalists were already back.
Add a defensive stopper, a potent scorer off the bench, and one of the NBA's most explosive athletes, and the U.S. is certain it has a powerful Olympic basketball team.
Better even than the one that won gold four years ago.
"We feel like we're definitely a great team. We have all the pieces that we need," forward Carmelo Anthony said. "We've got to put it together, but we feel like we're the best team out there."
The Americans rounded out their roster Saturday, adding Blake Griffin, Andre Iguodala and James Harden to the nine players who already seemed secure long before training camp began.
They earned the final three spots that opened after a rash of injuries knocked out at least four players who would have been on the team. They beat out Eric Gordon, Rudy Gay and No. 1 draft pick Anthony Davis of New Orleans, who couldn't scrimmage this week because of a sprained ankle.
The roster for London:
Carmelo Anthony, F, New York Knicks
Kobe Bryant, G, Los Angeles Lakers
Tyson Chandler, C, New York Knicks
Kevin Durant, F, Oklahoma City Thunder
Blake Griffin, F, Los Angeles Clippers
James Harden, G, Oklahoma City Thunder
Andre Iguodala, G/F, Philadelphia 76ers
LeBron James, F, Miami Heat
Kevin Love, F, Minnesota Timberwolves
Chris Paul, G, Los Angeles Clippers
Russell Westbrook, G, Oklahoma City Thunder
