Newly minted Los Angeles Laker LeBron James will not participate in Team USA's minicamp from July 25-27 in Las Vegas, sources told ESPN's Dave McMenamin.

The minicamp will be the first official USA Basketball event with Gregg Popovich as its head coach.

The next big event on the docket for the U.S. men's national team is the 2019 FIBA World Cup in China, with the 2020 Tokyo Olympics to follow. It's unclear whether James, who opted out of the Rio Olympics in 2016, intends to participate.
