Japan 2020

SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — Steph Curry declined to join the U.S. Olympics Men’s Basketball team, but his teammate Draymond Green is rounding out the 12-member team instead.

The official roster was confirmed Monday, and Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr is also participating – as assistant coach on the USA coaching staff, the Warriors said.

Curry is said to have declined the invitation due to offseason commitments, The Associated Press reported last week.

The 33-year-old father of three young kids has been called the greatest shooter in NBA history and is a finalist for ‘Best NBA Player’ for the 2021 ESPY Awards.

Green is returning to the Olympic games after winning a gold medal in Rio de Janeiro in 2016.

He’s heading to Tokyo with the following NBA players:

  • Bam Adebayo (Miami Heat)
  • Bradley Beal (Washington Wizards)
  • Devin Booker (Phoenix Suns)
  • Kevin Durant (Brooklyn Nets)
  • Jerami Grant (Detroit Pistons)
  • Jrue Holiday (Milwaukee Bucks)
  • Zach LaVine (Chicago Bulls)
  • Damian Lillard (Portland Trail Blazers)
  • Kevin Love (Cleveland Cavaliers)
  • Khris Middleton (Milwaukee Bucks)
  • Jayson Tatum (Boston Celtics)
