Along with Griner are other notable WNBA players and Olympians including the legendary five-time Olympic champion Diana Taurasi, Kelsey Plum, Breanna Stewart, and A'ja Wilson.

Griner, a dominant 6-foot-9 center, played a key role in the US team's gold medal victories in both Rio and Tokyo.

Despite facing adversity, including a stint in a Russian prison in 2022, she made a triumphant return to the WNBA last year and hasn't shown any signs of slowing down since.

Another standout on the roster is college sensation Caitlin Clark, who currently holds the title of the NCAA's all-time leading scorer.

As the sole college-level player named to the team, she is slated to join the training camp pending the outcome of Iowa's performance in the March Madness tournament.

The training camp is scheduled for April 3-5 at Cleveland Clinic Courts in Cleveland. The Final Four tournament will take place on Saturday, April 6, with the title game set for Monday, April 8 in Glendale, Arizona.
