Team USA set for Games warm-up
BARCELONA, Spain -- The United States will play Spain and Argentina in a pre-Olympic warm-up event that marks the 20th anniversary of the arrival of the "Dream Team."
The three countries will play a round-robin style tournament at Palau Sant-Jordi, starting July 22. Spain will face the United States in a Beijing Olympic gold medal rematch on July 24.
Led by NBA greats Michael Jordan, Larry Bird and Magic Johnson, the Americans won gold at the 1992 Barcelona Games -- the first Olympics with professional basketball players competing.
London will host this year's Olympics from July 27-Aug. 12, with men's basketball play starting on July 29.
