CP3 reportedly declines Team USA invite; Middleton, Love will play
Middleton and Holiday are still competing in the NBA playoffs. A potential Game 7 for the Finals is scheduled for July 22, with USA Basketball beginning Olympic play just three days later. Suns star Devin Booker could also be facing the same scenario but is reportedly joining the American squad.
Love last represented the Stars and Stripes at the 2012 Olympics in London. Middleton played for the U.S. two years ago at the FIBA World Cup, while Holiday has never suited up at a major international competition.
USA Basketball has now reportedly filled out 11 of its 12 roster spots.
