Not that the 2015-16 NBA season is over, Team USA’s men basketball team can focus on bringing home the Gold Medal. With the 2016 Rio Summer Olympic games set to start next month, the 2016 Team USA Men’s roster has been revealed and their are several new faces on this roster.

NBA MVP’s Stephen Curry and LeBron James won’t be making the trip to Rio this year but I believe Team USA will be just fine. Checkout the full 12 man roster below and a statement via Team USA below. Stay tuned to HHS1987. Follow @eldorado2452 on Twitter and Instagram for all your sports news.
