Team USA continues pre-Olympic exhibition play on Sunday night in Los Angeles against Argentina.

Head coach Mike Krzyzewski — beginning his final international tournament — rolls out his 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.

China stars 2016 draftee Zhou Qi and former NBA big man Yi Jianlian.

The U.S. and China meet again on Tuesday at Oracle Arena, where Durant will make his Bay Area debut.
