the 12 chosen from the USA to play the Olympics

The USA has given the list for the TOKYO Olympics. The selection led by Popovich has chosen the following 12 players

Bam Adebayo (Miami Heat)
Bradley Beal (Washington Wizards)
Devin Booker (Phoenix Suns)
Kevin Durant (BrooklYn Nets)
Jerami Grant (Detroit Pistons)
Draymond Green (Golden State Warriors)
Jrue Holiday (Milwaukee Bucks)
Zach LaVine (Chicago Bulls)
Damian Lillard (Portland Trail Blazers)
Kevin Love (Cleveland Cavaliers)
Khris Middleton (Milwaukee Bucks)
Jayson Tatum (Boston Celtics).

The team, as we say, would be led by Gregg Popovich (San Antonio Spurs) and his assistants will be Steve Kerr (Golden State Warriors), Lloyd Pierce Y Jay Wright (Villanova University). The manager will remain Jerry Colangelo

“We are excited about the 12 players who have been selected to represent the United States at the Tokyo Olympics,” said Colangelo. “It was a new selection process for many reasons, including the one-year postponement of the Olympics and problems related to the NBA regular season schedule and playoffs.

“Our roster includes players with international game experience and this team has outstanding athleticism, versatility and balance. We also believe that we have excellent leadership, which is a must to develop the necessary chemistry. We still have a lot of challenges ahead of us, but I think these players will become a team that all Americans will be proud of. “

Durant, Green and Love already have a gold medal. Durant becomes the fourth player who has been chosen to play three or more Olympics. Carmelo Anthony (2004, 2008, 2012, 2016), LeBron James (2004, 2008, 2012) and David Robinson (1988, 1992, 1996) are the others.

The median age is 28.2 years, the third-oldest US men’s Olympic team in history, behind the team from the 1996 Atlanta Olympics (29.4) and the 1992 Barcelona Olympics ( 29.0).
