Although the worst of the COVID-19 pandemic has passed, it is certainly not over. Early in the playoffs, we saw Chris Paul miss the first two games of the Phoenix Suns Western Conference Finals because he was required to abide by health and safety regulations. Now Washington Wizards point guard Bradley Beal will miss the Olympics for the same reason. In a statement issued on Thursday, the US Basketball Association confirmed that Bill will not travel to Tokyo later this month: US Basketball Association men’s national team point guard Bradley Beal (Washington Wizards) was placed in US basketball on Wednesday Under the team’s health and safety agreement. In the health and safety agreement, it will not be possible to participate in the Tokyo Olympics from July 23 to August 8. The replacements in the list will be named later.
The U.S. team will seek to win the gold medal for the fourth consecutive time but did not perform well in the first exhibition game in Las Vegas. They lost to Nigeria in an amazing way, which was one of the biggest upsets in the history of international basketball, and then lost to Australia. Although they regrouped to take care of Argentina, there are still concerns that this team lacks some of the best American players such as LeBron James, Stephen Curry, James Harden, Kawhi Leonard, and Anthony Day. Weiss. Another short offseason, injuries, and pandemics ensuring this team’s commitment is a challenge. Finding someone to replace Bill, who ranks second in the league in scoring this season, will be a challenge under normal circumstances.
If completed in a short time, taking into account all other obstacles, this will be a major test for the leadership of the US team. While we are waiting for the official decision, here are some players who may be called up: Julius Randall (New York Knicks) When Tokyo’s 12-man roster was announced last month, US Team Chief Executive Jerry Colonger Low said that Knicks forward Julius Randall was “close” to achieving this goal and was “one of our considerations, especially when some injuries occurred and we lost some players.” Given that he left to become a team initially. How close is a member, so Randall will appear on Bill’s list of possible substitutes? He is about to end his career year and will bring another great man who can score and rebound to a small American team. Tobias Harris (Philadelphia 76ers) One name to watch is Harris. According to Keith Pompeo of the Philadelphia Inquirer, the US team is trying to find out if he has the opportunity to join the team because he is currently on vacation abroad.
If selected, Harris will provide the US team with another large wing that can defend multiple positions and can easily play and off the ball, which is very important for the number of main stars of this team. Duncan Robinson (Miami Heat) Although this is not a direct deal, if the US team wants to go this way, Robinson will be another shooting guard choice. Robinson is the team’s starter and one of the most dangerous three-point threats in the world. Its ability to open the floor will give outside creators like Kevin Durant and Jason Tatum a working space, and you will never shoot too much. It is worth mentioning that Grant Aspis of Sports Illustrated reported that Robinson was on the shortlist.
