Team USA opens its pre-Olympic exhibition play on Friday night in Las Vegas against Argentina.

Head coach Mike Krzyzewski—beginning his final international tournament—will unveil a new-look roster, with Carmelo Anthony and Kevin Durant the only holdovers from the 2012 gold medal-winning team,  and Kyrie Irving, Klay Thompson, DeMarcus Cousins and DeMar DeRozan returning from the 2014 World Cup champion squad. The U.S. enters the Rio tournament as favored as ever, despite missing LeBron James, Stephen Curry and several of its biggest names.

Argentina is led by Manu Ginobili, who is preparing for what will surely be his final Olympic Games. Luis Scola and former NBAer Andres Nocioni help round out the roster.
