BRIAN MAHONEY, AP Basketball Writer
NEW YORK (AP) — A person with knowledge of the details says the U.S. men’s national team has cut John Wall, Bradley Beal and Paul Millsap, leaving the roster at 16 players.

With Paul George lost to a broken right leg, the Americans will have to drop four more players before the World Cup of Basketball later this month in Spain.

The Americans made the cuts Monday that had been planned for Saturday but delayed after George’s injury, the person told The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the roster moves were going to be announced Tuesday. They were first reported by Yahoo Sports.

The remaining players will report to Chicago for practices that begin Aug. 14.
