The roster for Team USA for the Tokyo Olympics this summer continues to take shape. Fresh off of a disappointing loss to the Milwaukee Bucks in the Eastern Conference semifinals, Brooklyn Nets star forward Kevin Durant is expected to commit to the team, according to Shams Charania of The Athletic. Durant has ample Olympic experience, as he won a gold medal with Team USA at both the 2012 Olympics in London and the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janerio.
Durant’s addition will obviously be a big boost to the roster, as he’s one of the best pure scorers in basketball history and also one of the most prolific scorers in Olympic history. He currently sits just 25 points shy of Carmelo Anthony’s Olympic scoring record. In addition to Durant, Portland Trail Blazers guard Damian Lillard, Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green. Boston Celtics forward Jayson Tatum, and Washington Wizards guard Bradley Beal have all also committed to the team. Given the players that have already committed, it sure doesn’t seem like the team will have a problem putting up points.
