Nearly all the All-NBA talent on the roster has withdrawn from training camp. The most common reason parroted by the scoopmongers is a desire to “focus on the upcoming NBA season,” though Bradley Beal cited the upcoming birth of his second child. Kevin Love is currently on the fence, per The Athletic. DeMar DeRozan was added to the USA roster last month but has since withdrawn.

To fill the void left by vanishing superstars, Jaylen Brown and Julius Randle have been added to the training camp roster; Marcus Smart, D’Angelo Russell, and Aaron Gordon are reportedly under consideration too.
