The final tournaments to determine the remaining nations in Brazil will take place in July and will include the likes of France, Greece and Serbia.
The draw happened in Miles, Switzerland and the competition begins on August 6, with the top four teams from each group reaching the quarter-finals.
U.S. coach Mike Krzyzewski said in a statement: "So we know that they'll not only be excellent teams, but they will already be on a roll when they get to the Olympics."
The United States will be strong favourites to take home the gold medal but it will be interesting to see how they deal with the tag of favourites.
