The lineup for the Team USA men’s basketball roster for the 2024 Olympics has been unveiled.Naruto

Most of the squad set to compete in the Paris Games reportedly was revealed on Monday and it’s headlined by Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James and Golden State Warriors star Steph Curry.

The 12-man roster has one spot open, ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski added, which could be filled later.

Here are the 11 players currently called up:

  • LeBron James, Los Angeles Lakers
  • Steph Curry, Golden State Warriors
  • Kevin Durant, Phoenix Suns
  • Jayson Tatum,Boston Celtics
  • Anthony Davis, Los Angeles Lakers
  • Joel Embiid, Philadelphia 76ers
  • Devin Booker, Phoenix Suns
  • Tyrese Haliburton, Indiana Pacers
  • Bam Adebayo, Miami Heat
  • Anthony Edwards, Minnesota Timberwolves
  • Jrue Holiday, Boston Celtics

Team USA is seeking its fifth straight gold medal in the Olympics. It’s the most dominant team in the competition having medaled in all 19 times it participated (withdrew from the 1980 Olympics in Russia).

Sixteen of those medals are gold, with one silver (1972) and two bronze (1988, 2004).

Team USA Roster 'Locks' For Paris Olympics Revealed

James, of course, has the most Olympics experience of anyone on the list. The 39-year-old was on the 2004 bronze-winning squad, then helped win gold in 2008 and 2012. This would be his fourth Olympics appearance.

On the contrary, Curry, surprisingly enough, is set to make his Olympics debut. The 36-year-old superstar has never competed in a prior tournament, so 2024 could be the year he adds more hardware to his already-stacked resume.

Durant, 35, could have the chance to make history. He’s one of two men’s basketball players with three gold medals (tied with Carmelo Anthony), so a fourth in 2024 would make him the winningest Olympic men’s basketball player of all time. Sue Bird and Diana Taurasi each possess five gold medals on the women’s side.

Elsewhere, Davis won gold at the 2012 Olympics in London. Booker, Tatum, Holiday and Adebayo were on the squad that most recently claimed gold in Tokyo.

Along with the aforementioned Curry, Embiid, Edwards and Haliburton currently don’t have an Olympic medal.

Team USA’s group in Paris features Serbia, South Sudan and the winner of the Puerto Rico Olympic Qualifying Tournament.
