Washington Wizards star Bradley Beal has committed to Team USA for the Tokyo Olympics, according to Shams Charania.
This will be the first Olympic appearance for Beal, 27, who averaged a career-best 31.3 points per game this season, finishing as the NBA’s second-leading scorer behind Stephen Curry.
Team USA is looking for their fourth consecutive Olympic gold medal and is coming off a disappointing seventh place finish at the 2019 FIBA World Cup.
Team USA’s 12-man roster is expected to be set in late June and training camp begins on July 6 in Las Vegas led by head coach Gregg Popovich.
The group stage of the men’s Olympic basketball tournament will take place from July 25 to Aug. 1, with the knockout round taking place from Aug. 3-7.
