West Indies start their tour of Pakistan with a two-day game in Lahore from Wednesday followed by three Tests and five one-day internationals.
Pakistan lost the Test series in England 3-0 and were eliminated in disappointing fashion from the Champions Trophy after the round-robin phase.
Chief selector Wasim Bari said the panel had an open mind regarding the Test line-up.
"These are special circumstances with Shoaib Akhtar and Mohammad Asif also unavailable. We will consider a number of discarded players as we need to plug in the gaps in the team," he said on Thursday.
Opener Hameed last played in June 2005 and middle order bat Kamal, who has eight fifties in 12 Tests, have been ignored since last winter while Sami has also been out of favour since failing in England.
Shoaib and Asif were banned for two years and one year respectively on Wednesday by a Pakistan
Pakistan have also been without paceman Shabbir Ahmed since last December after the International Cricket Council banned him for a year for an illegal bowling action.
A senior Pakistan board official said that Yasir, Kamal and Sami were being considered for selection as it was time to start preparing the best possible combination for the World Cup.
Efforts are being made to also get Shabbir's action cleared in Australia this month, he added. Ahmed will leave on Nov. 20 for Australia for biomechanical tests on his action.
He has 51 wickets in 10 Tests.
Bari said the bans on Shoaib and Asif was a major setback but the selectors had built up a good bench strength of 20 to 25 players and Pakistan still had the capacity to field a balanced one-day squad.
"We have been following the rotation policy of selection consistently based on a player's current form and it has worked well for us," he added.
