There's plenty more summer league basketball today, including a closed scrimmage between the Golden State Warriors and Phoenix Suns.

But today also features a USA Basketball doubleheader with the men's and women's teams playing Brazil in D.C.

Details for all the basketball you can handle today after the jump.

SB Nation's NBA summer league storystream has all the details and updates on summer league action, with the schedule posted below:

USA Basketball doubleheader on ESPN2/3.com starting at 2:30 p.m.

The men's and women's basketball teams will be taking on Brazil in Washington, D.C. today as they prepare for the 2012 Olympics.

USA women vs. Brazil at 2:30 p.m.

The USA women will be playing Brazil first and SB Nation's Swish Appeal (which I also contribute to) has a look at the rosters for the entire Olympic field as well as a closer look at the team of WNBA players representing the U.S. in London.

Brazil features two WNBA veterans who have taken a hiatus from the 2012 season to train for the Olympics (Iziane Castro Marques and Erika de Souza) as well as a 2012 WNBA first round draft pick (Damiris Dantas, 12th overall, Minnesota Lynx).

USA men vs. Brazil at 5 p.m.

The USA men will tip at 5 p.m. and SB Nation's USA basketball storystream has all the info you need about that one and for more background on the roster, etc. you can check out SBN's Olympic basketball hub.

With three Oklahoma City Thunder players playing for Team USA, SBN's Welcome to Loud City has a full preview of the men's basketball team's matchup with Brazil.
