Team USA men’s basketball Director Jerry Colangelo is promoting three Select Team players – San Antonio Spurs’ forward Keldon Johnson, Cleveland Cavaliers’ guard Darius Garland, and Detroit Pistons’ forward Saddiq Bey – to the active roster for upcoming exhibition games, per Shams Charania of The Athletic and Stadium.
Johnson, Garland, and Bey will replace Phoenix Suns’ guard Devin Booker, Milwaukee Bucks’ guard Jrue Holiday, and Bucks’ forward Khris Middleton; all three of whom are competing in the NBA Finals.
The Select Team has lost three players to COVID-19 protocols, namely New York Knicks’ guard Immanuel Quickley, and Charlotte Hornets’ forwards Miles Bridges and P.J. Washington, and two players to injuries: Minnesota Timberwolves’ forward Anthony Edwards and Pistons’ center Isaiah Stewart.
Team USA will debut its new roster on July 10 at 5PM PST in an exhibition game against Nigeria.
