Damian Lillard & Draymond Green First to Commit To Team USA


Team USA's 2021 Olympic men's basketball squad is starting to take shape, as Portland Trail Blazers guard Damian Lillard and Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green have announced that they are IN.

The Tokyo Olympics take place starting in late July, with training camp opening in just three weeks, July 6th. Coach Gregg Popovich hopes to have the full roster set within a couple of weeks. 

This will be Lillard's first Olympics, while Green will be taking part in his 2nd Games. Both players are 31. 

The two bring a disparate set of skills to the team. Lillard was the NBA's 3rd-leading scorer this season, at 28.8 ppg, while Draymond remains one of the league's best defenders, once again named to the All-Defensive First Team.
