The Team USA roster is set!

Ahead of the team's training camp, which starts on July 6 in Las Vegas, the USA Men's National Team 12-man roster for the Tokyo Olympics has been confirmed:

Jayson Tatum and Khris Middleton are the only two players who remain from the 2019 FIBA Basketball World Cup squad, while Kevin Durant (2012, 2016), Draymond Green (2016) and Kevin Love (2012) are the only players with previous Olympic experience.

San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich will lead Team USA as head coach, while Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr, former Atlanta Hawks coach Lloyd Pierce and Villanova coach Jay Wright make up his assistants.

After opening training camp, Team USA will play five exhibition games heading into the Olympics. They will play Nigeria on July 10, Australia on July 12 and July 16, Argentina on July 13 and Spain on July 18. Team USA will then play their first game of the Tokyo Olympics on July 25 against France.

Team USA will be looking to win their fourth straight Olympic gold medal, having won in 2008, 2012 and 2016.

Of the players who have committed, Devin Booker, Khris Middleton and Jrue Holiday remain in the 2021 NBA Playoffs.

It was reported that Chris Paul planned to commit to Team USA, but he declined an invitation per ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski. James Harden also reportedly planned to commit to Team USA, but USA Basketball managing director Jerry Colangelo said he won't be a part of the team as he recovers from a hamstring injury.
