LeBron James wants another Olympic gold. Team USA failed to medal at the FIBA World Cup, which the Lakers star witnessed.
The U.S. placed fourth after losing to Lithuania, Germany, and Canada. The Americans placed sixth in the 2019 World Cup in China.
James is “ready to commit” to playing for Team USA at the 2024 Paris Olympics, according to Shams Charania and Joe Vardon of The Athletic.
James is disappointed with the World Cup result despite not playing. According to Charania and Vardon, James has called many NBA stars to recruit them for Team USA in France next year.
Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant, Anthony Davis, Jayson Tatum, and Draymond Green have all committed to James.
League sources also stated Phoenix's Devin Booker, Portland's Damian Lillard, Sacramento's De'Aaron Fox, and Dallas' Kyrie Irving are interested in committing.
James could recreate one of the greatest rosters since the 1992 Dream Team and bring several superstars to Paris.
