Kevin Love among 5 returnees to US National roster

Reluctant Timberwolf Kevin Love and four returnees from the 2012 Olympic men's basketball champions are among the 19 players selected to compete for a spot on this summer's U.S. national team roster.

Kevin Durant, Derrick Rose, James Harden and Anthony Davis were the other four holdovers announced Monday, along with new additions DeMar DeRozan of Toronto and Chandler Parsons, who is leaving Houston for Dallas.

Players will report to training camp in Las Vegas this month, with the roster cut to 12 for the World Cup of Basketball in Spain.

Rose is trying to make the team after his NBA season was cut short by another knee operation.

The rest of the roster: Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson (Golden State), Kyrie Irving (Cleveland), Blake Griffin (Clippers), Paul George (Indiana), Damian Lillard (Portland), Gordon Hayward (Utah), DeMarcus Cousins (Sacramento), Bradley Beal (Washington), Andre Drummond (Detroit), Kenneth Faried (Denver) and Kyle Korver (Atlanta).
