Article Summary:

In February 2020, USA Basketball announced 44 finalists who would be given a shot at making the Olympic roster, and Thursday morning 15 players were added to that list.

“With the postponement of the Tokyo Olympics from 2020 to 2021, it’s important that we continue to remain flexible and consider all players who can contribute to our efforts to field the best USA team possible,” Colangelo said in a statement released by USA Basketball.

The 2020 Tokyo Olympics are set to take place July 23 through Aug. 8, one year after its original start date. The Tokyo Olympics Organizing Committee is still deciding whether or not to allow fans from outside the country to attend the summer games as the country of Japan tries to pull off the giant spectacle that is the Olympics with health and safety standards in mind.
