SPOKANE, Wash. — Gonzaga coach Mark Few will serve on the coaching staff for USA Basketball's men's national team, according to a report from ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

Few will serve as an assistant coach alongside Phoenix Suns head coach Monty Williams and Miami Heat head coach Erik Spoelstra, Wojnarowski reported.
