In fact, most of the roster from the 2012 Games could return with stars Candace Parker, Maya Moore and Tina Charles all reaching their prime. Not to mention a wealth of young talent with WNBA rookies Elena Delle Donne and Brittney Griner.

"I am excited to hear that Coach Auriemma will again be our national team coach," Bird said. "As a player I've learned a lot from him and it would be a privilege to be on his team once more. He now knows what it takes to win gold medals and that experience on an ever improving world stage is invaluable."

As has been the case for the last few Olympics, training time with his team will be one of Auriemma's concerns. Between his college season, the WNBA season and players overseas commitments in the winter, there is a limited window to get players together.

The U.S. will try and train this Fall for a few days.

"Our training time is limited, and we need to make the most of it," Auriemma said.
