Reading through the 35-player Olympic team pool of the US is getting us here at 777iGame excited. You have a lot of national team veterans here, with LeBron James clinching his fourth time to play in the Olympics, while Kevin Durant and Chris Paul both playing their third. They, along with 32 other players, belong to the pool of the US National Basketball team for 2018 up to 2020.

Popular players like Stephen Curry, James Harden, Kyrie Irving, Anthony Davis and Russel Westbrook are also included in the list to represent the USA if they qualify for the World Basketball Cup in 2019 and, of course, the Olympics in 2020.

The other players included in team USA are:
New Orleans’ DeMarcus Cousins
San Antonio’s Kawhi Leonard
Oklahoma City’s Paul George
Houston’s Eric Gordon
Boston’s Gordon Hayward
Lakers’ Isaiah Thomas
Charlotte’s Kemba Walker
Dallas’ Harrison Barnes
Memphis’ Mike Conley Jr.
Milwaukee’s Khris Middleton
Phoenix’s Devin Booker
Golden State’s Klay Thompson and Draymond Green

Indiana’s Victor Oladipo and Myles Turner
Cleveland’s Kevin Love
Minnesota’s Jimmy Butler

The team will be attending a mini-camp in Las Vegas in July. Gregg Popovich will be coaching for the first time. When asked about coaching the line-up, Popovich had this to say: “It’s quite an idea, or thought, when you think about being on the court with all these players. That’s quite a brotherhood. There’s a lot of talent there, these guys have friendships, they enjoy getting together, the culture’s been established with USA Basketball and everything that they’ve done. So to see that in action and to see all these guys come together in Vegas this summer is going to be pretty exciting.”
