LeBron James, Steph Curry, Kevin Durant, Kawhi Leonard, Joel Embiid, and James Hardenall NBA figures are included in the 41 players eligible to participate in the United States team in the next Olympic Games in Paris 2024, according to the list published this Tuesday by the American Basketball Federation (USA Basketball).
On the list of players selected by the director of the American team, Grant Hill, are Devin Booker, Kyrie Irving, Chris Paul, Jayson Tatum, Jaylen Brown, Jimmy Butler, or Damian Lillard.
Coach Steve Kerr will report in the coming months on who will be the twelve chosen to form the team that will compete in Paris. In the United States, there is a desire for revenge after two disappointments experienced in the last two World Cups, where the team went with a squad without its main stars.
The young group that Kerr put together was uneven, and in the last World Cup, the United States lost in the semifinals against Germany, the eventual champions. The United States finished fourth after also losing the battle for third place against Canada.
The Paris Olympic Games will be held from July 26 to August 11, and the United States will defend its crown after winning gold in the last four editions and in seven of the last eight.
This is the list of 41 players who qualified for the United States: Bam Adebayo, Jarrett Allen, Paolo Banchero, Desmond Bane, Scottie Barnes, Devin Booker, Mikal Bridges, Jaylen Brown, Jalen Brunson, Jimmy Butler, Alex Caruso, Stephen Curry, Anthony Davis, Kevin Durant, Anthony Edwards, Joel Embiid, De’ Aaron Fox, Paul George, Aaron Gordon, Tyrese Haliburton, James Harden, Josh Hart, Tyler Herro, Jrue Holiday, Chet Holmgren, Brandon Ingram, Kyrie Irving, Jaren Jackson Jr., LeBron James, Cam Johnson, Walker Kessler, Kawhi Leonard, Damian Lillard, Donovan Mitchell, Chris Paul, Bobby Portis, Austin Reaves, Duncan Robinson, Jayson Tatum, Derrick White, and Trae Young.
