BARCELONA, Spain (AP) -- The United States will play Spain and Argentina in a pre-Olympic warmup event that marks the 20th anniversary of the arrival of the “Dream Team.”

The three countries will play a round-robin style tournament at Palau Sant-Jordi, starting July 22. Spain will face the United States in a Beijing Olympic gold medal rematch on July 24.

Led by NBA greats Michael Jordan, Larry Bird and Magic Johnson, the Americans won gold at the 1992 Barcelona Games — the first Olympics with professional basketball players competing.

London will host this year’s Olympics from July 27-Aug. 12, with men’s basketball play starting on July 29.
