DeMar DeRozan and Derrick White have been named finalists for the U.S. Olympic Men’s Basketball Team.
White was part of the underachieving United States National Team that placed seventh at the 2019 FIBA World Cup, and the Spurs combo guard averaged 5.9 points and 2.5 assists per game.
DeRozan won a gold medal with Team USA at both the 2014 FIBA World Cup and the 2016 Summer Olympics, and the four-time All-Star played an integral role as the first guard off the bench.
Gregg Popovich is the head coach of the U.S. National Team, and Steve Kerr, Lloyd Pierce, and Jay Wright fill out a star-studded bench staff of assistant coaches joining the NBA legend in Tokyo.
USA Basketball Chairman and National Team Managing Director Jerry Colangelo and Team USA will announce the final cuts for an official 12-man roster later this year.
