Tokyo Olympics Team USA Basketball: USA Basketball is in the preparation phases of building a pre-Olympic bubble in Las Vegas for Team USA, Australia, and Spain to train and play exhibition games against each other before departing to Tokyo, said managing director Jerry Colangelo.

The NBA players are assumed to make up the essence of all three teams and the league’s playoffs are listed to take place from May 22 to July 22.

On the surface, it makes a lot of sense,” Colangelo said. “We have to be flexible.

This idea will build an atmosphere where players can restrict travel and potential vulnerability to COVID-19 before going to Japan. Team USA is provisionally preparing to open practice camp the week of July 4, while the NBA playoffs are ongoing.
