Hoop dreams: LeBron James considers FOURTH Olympics ahead of 2020 Tokyo Games

The final roster, who will have the honor of representing the United States in the Olympics in Tokyo, Japan, will have 12 players, so it's not a lock that Green will be on the team. Harris plays similarly to Carmelo Anthony, who has had some of the most success of any National Basketball Association player in the Olympics. We don't know. So we have the rest of the season to monitor, to watch.

A statement from USA Basketball named three-time Olympic champion James and Los Angeles Lakers team-mate Anthony Davis in the player group, which will eventually be whittled down to a 12-man roster.

Love, 31, has extensive USA Basketball experience. This year's Games could have seen James compete in his fifth Games, but he did not compete in 2016. Colangelo further added that there will no tryouts and the final squad will be announced by early June.

Notably, players like Trae Young, Zach LaVine, Carmelo Anthony, Zion Williamson, Ja Morant and John Collins were left off the list entirely while Kyle Kuzma, Dwight Howard, Marcus Smart and Derrick White were among the 44 players to receive camp invitations. The Cavs are one of five teams to feature two players among the finalists.

This summer's Team USA squad will once again be coached by San Antonio Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich. Steve Kerr, Lloyd Pierce and Jay Wright will serve as assistants.

Amazon Challenges Trump Over JEDI Contract
The contract was awarded to Microsoft in late October after Esper announced he would "reexamine" the Pentagon's approach to JEDI . The other individuals "can testify about specific conversations he had with them", Amazon's lawyers said.


Popovich was an assistant coach on the US team that finished third at the 2004 Olympics. Twelve of those players represented the team in the Basketball World Cup in China where the team finished 7th place after three dozen players who were originally on the list made a decision to drop out along the way.

And those with World Cup or world championship gold medals for USA Basketball, but no Olympic gold to this point: Golden State's Stephen Curry, Cleveland's Andre Drummond and Denver's Mason Plumlee.

Team USA released their 44 finalists for the 2020 Olympic Team in Tokyo on Monday, which includes five members of the Boston Celtics.

The 2020 Olympics will be held from July 24 through August 9 in Tokyo, Japan, with training camp for Team USA starting weeks beforehand.

Team USA managing director Jerry Colangelo has long said that James will have a priority spot on the roster if he wants it. James was one of the keys to the turnaround of USA Basketball after the program's embarrassing third-place finish in the 2004 Athens Olympics.
