USA Men's Basketball: Olympics roster, schedule, odds & more

The United States Men's Basketball team is bringing a loaded roster to the 2024 Paris Summer Olympics in the hopes of avenging the team's fourth-place finish at the 2023 FIBA World Cup.

Point guard Tyrese Haliburton and shooting guard Anthony Edwards are the only players from the World Cup team to be selected to the Olympics team, although Jalen Brunson would have been in contention had he not suffered a broken hand in his team's final game of the 2024 NBA Playoffs.

Team USA won gold at the last Summer Olympics, and five players from that team - Bam Adebayo, Devin Booker, Kevin Durant, Jrue Holiday and Jayson Tatum - were selected to the 2024 team.

Two-time gold medalist LeBron James returns to the team, and two-time NBA MVP Stephen Curry will make his Olympics debut after pulling out of contention for the 2016 team due to injuries.

Cameroonian-born Joel Embiid, who moved to the USA as a teenager to pursue basketball, has been called up to Team USA for the first time. He had been eligible to play for Cameroon, France, and as of when he acquired citizenship in September 2023, the United States.
