Detroit Pistons’ Stars Named To USA National Team Roster
We could be seeing two Detroit Pistons in the next Olympics as USA Basketball has announced their national team roster for 2018-2020.
According to the story from M-Live, Center, Andre Drummond and Forward, Blake Griffin were among the names announced for the latest roster.
The roster as you would expect features many NBA stars that include: Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant, James Harden, Draymond Green, DeMar DeRozan, Russell Westbrook and Lebron James among many others.
The players on the roster are expected to attend a mini camp this July in Las Vegas. 12 players are expected to be chosen from this list to be apart of the team that will be featured in the 2019 USA World Cup and 2020 Olympics in Tokyo.
The team is set to be coached by Gregg Popovich. The Detroit Pistons were recently eliminated from the playoffs but they missed guard Reggie Jackson for a large portion of the season.
We will see how the team does next year with everyone back healthy as we only had a few games to see Reggie, Andre and Blake on the court together. We will also see if the big two have a chance to make the final team roster for the upcoming events.
