NEW YORK (AP) — The U.S. national basketball team has kept Derrick Rose and cut Damian Lillard and three others, getting its roster down to 12 before the FIBA World Cup of Basketball.

Kyle Korver, Gordon Hayward and Chandler Parsons also were cut early Saturday morning, shortly after the Americans beat Puerto Rico 112-86 in their final exhibition game before leaving for Spain.

Team officials had previously said they might bring more than 12 players on the trip, but coach Mike Krzyzewski said after the game he wanted to get down to 12, the maximum allowable for the World Cup rosters.

Rose was expected to make the team if he was healthy enough after missing most of the last two seasons following two knee surgeries.

The rest of the roster is: Stephen Curry, Anthony Davis, James Harden, Kyrie Irving, DeMarcus Cousins, Klay Thompson, Andre Drummond, Rudy Gay, DeMar DeRozan, Kenneth Faried and Mason Plumlee.
