The United States Men’s National Basketball Team has finalized their 12-man roster for the rescheduled 2020 Tokyo Olympics, per a report from Senior NBA Insider Shams Charania of The Athletic.
Team USA's 12-man roster for the Tokyo Olympics:— Shams Charania (@ShamsCharania) June 23, 2021
Detroit Pistons combo forward Jerami Grant and Chicago Bulls shooting guard Zach LaVine committed to Team USA shortly after James Harden withdrew his name to recover from a hamstring injury this offseason.
Grant and Lavine round out a roster featuring Damian Lillard, Draymond Green, Jayson Tatum, Bradley Beal, Devin Booker, Kevin Durant, Bam Adebayo, Khris Middleton, Jrue Holiday, and Kevin Love.
Outside of Jerami, the United States is comprised entirely of current and former All-Stars. Gregg Popovich will unquestionably have a great shot at winning his first gold medal at the Olympics as head coach of Team USA.
The USMNBT opens training camp in Las Vegas on July 6 before heading to Tokyo for the 2020 Olympics. The group stages will run from July 25 to August 1, followed by the knockout rounds from August 3 to August 7.
The Red, White, and Blue have gone an unblemished 24-0 and won three consecutive gold medals at the 2008 Beijing, 2012 London, and 2016 Rio de Janeiro Olympics. And they’ll be frontrunners once again in 2021.
