Phoenix Suns star guard Devin Booker has committed to play for Team USA in the Tokyo Olympics, according to Adrian Wojnarowski.
This will be the first Olympic appearance for Booker, who is still competing in the NBA playoffs, as the Suns have already advanced to the Western Conference Finals and are awaiting the winner of the series between the Utah Jazz and Los Angeles Clippers.
This season, the 24-year-old averaged 25.6 points, 4.2 rebounds and 4.3 assists per game, while shooting 48.4 percent from the field and 34.0 percent from three-point.
Booker is also averaging 27.9 points, 6.8 rebounds and 4.8 assists per game through the team’s first 10 playoff games.
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.
