USA is getting ready for the 2024 Olympics by revealing this recent roster

The USA is bringing a solid 12-player team for the Paris Games this summer for the Olympics. According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, The Athletic’s Shams Charania and Joe Vardon say that Team USA has almost completed its roster, with 11 of the 12 spots filled.

Steve Kerr has reportedly finalized his team for the 2024 Olympics. The lineup for the Paris Games was revealed recently, featuring superstars like LeBron James from the Los Angeles Lakers and Steph Curry from the Golden State Warriors.

The squad includes 11 players, with one spot remaining for a potential player to be filled. Here are the athletes confirmed for the Olympic 2024:

  1. LeBron James (Los Angeles Lakers)
  2. Steph Curry (Golden State Warriors)
  3. Kevin Durant (Phoenix Suns)
  4. Jayson Tatum (Boston Celtics)
  5. Anthony Davis (Los Angeles Lakers)
  6. Joel Embiid (Philadelphia 76ers)
  7. Devin Booker (Phoenix Suns)
  8. Tyrese Haliburton (Indiana Pacers)
  9. Bam Adebayo (Miami Heat)
  10. Anthony Edwards (Minnesota Timberwolves)
  11. Jrue Holiday (Boston Celtics)

The remaining spot on the roster may be filled later, as ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reported. Charania and Vardon reported, “Kawhi Leonard is the leading candidate for the USA vacancy, with Paul George, Paolo Banchero, Mikal Bridges, and Jalen Brunson also being considered.”

Leonard, a favorite to join big names like Durant and LeBron on the team, is dealing with a knee injury, and his status for the start of the playoffs with the Los Angeles Clippers is not confirmed yet.
