Devin Booker, Bradley Beal Join U.S. Olympic Team for Tokyo

Team USA just picked up a couple of big-time scoring options. Devin Booker, still in the middle of leading a heated run by the Phoenix Suns into the Western Conference Finals, has announced that he will be joining Team USA for the Tokyo Olympics this summer. 

This came just minutes after Bradley Beal of the Washington Wizards also committed to the team.  

Beal averaged 31.3 ppg this season for the Wizards, while Booker poured in 25.6 ppg for the Suns. 

The 12-man Team USA roster is now 5-deep, and features some serious scoring punch and clutch players, in Booker, Beal, Jayson Tatum of the Boston Celtics, and the first two to commit, Portland Trail Blazers' Damian Lillard and Draymond Green of the Golden State Warriors. 

36-year-old Chris Paul, also in the middle of a deep playoff run alongside Booker, is also in Team USA's sights.

The final roster is expected to be complete by the end of the month, with players—that is, the ones not still playing in the NBA Finals—to report to training camp on July 6th. The Olympics begin on July 23rd in Tokyo, Japan.
