Only One Opening Left on Team USA for the Olympics; Chris Paul pulls out

Khris Middleton, Kevin Love and Jrue Holiday will be filling 3 of the remaining 4 spots on the men's basketball team for the Tokyo Olympics this summer. Holiday takes the spot that had been reserved for Chris Paul, who has now declined the offer.

Damian Lillard, Draymond Green and Jayson Tatum were the first to sign-up, followed since then by Kevin Durant, James Harden, Bradley Beal, Bam Adebayo, Devin Booker, and now Middleton and Holiday from the Milwaukee Bucks, and the Cleveland Cavaliers' Kevin Love.

There's a bit of a hitch in these plans, however, as Booker, Holiday and Middleton could be competing in the NBA Finals up until July 22nd; The Tokyo Games begin on July 23rd. As for Booker, he has his sights set on the Olympics, regardless:

Team USA Director Jerry Colangelo says Booker told him: "Even if we (the Suns) go all the way in the Finals and I only have three days to get to Tokyo, I’ll be there.” Colangelo said they'll be happy to charter a special flight for him, and any of the others who play in the Finals. 

As noted by The Athletic's Joe Vardon, that final slot on the team is seemingly reserved for Paul George. No word on George, Middleton, and Holiday's intentions should their teams make it to the Finals.
