The Jazz's Ronnie Brewer and Paul Millsap, as expected, were among 25 players officially named today to take part next month in a USA Basketball mini-camp at Las Vegas.

The surprise joining them will be Kyle Korver, the Jazz's backup shooting guard.

Korver, who underwent offeason surgery on his shooting wrist, has until Tuesday night to decide if he's going to opt of the final season in his current contract with the Jazz.

Brewer, the Jazz's starting shooting guard, is eligible for an extension from his rookie contract this offseason, and Millsap will be an unrestricted free agent in the NBA's summer shopping market that opens next week.

The July 22-25 camp features up-and-coming prospects for Team USA's entries in the 2010 FIBA World Championship tournament at Turkey and the 2012 Summer Olympics in London.

Also accepting invites: Portland teammates LaMarcus Aldridge, Jerryd Bayless, Greg Oden and Brandon Roy; Trevor Ariza of the Los Angeles Lakers; Charlotte's D.J. Augustin; Boston's Glen "Big Baby" Davis; Oklahoma City's Kevin Durant, Jeff Green and Russell Westbrook; Memphis' Rudy Gay and O.J. Mayo; Indiana's Danny Granger; New Jersey's Devin Harris; Philadelphia's Andre Iguodala and Thaddeus

Young; New York's David Lee; New Jersey's Brook Lopez; Minnesota's Kevin Love; Chicago's Derrick Rose; Atlanta's Josh Smith; and University of Oklahoma product Blake Griffin, the projected No. 1 overall pick of the Los Angeles Clippers in tonight's NBA Draft.

Jazz assistant coach Tyrone Corbin will work as an assistant at the camp, which is being run by Toronto Raptors head coach Jay Triano.
