Golden State Warriors star Steph Curry is planning to be part of the team that represents the United States at the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo.
“That is the plan, for sure,” Curry told ESPN’s Rachel Nichols.
“You know, obviously knock on wood, you don’t want any injuries or things like that to interfere.”
Team USA is coming off an embarrassing seventh-place finish in the Fiba World Cup.
The US team had won 58 consecutive tournament games in Fiba and Olympic competition with NBA players dating to 2005 coming into the tournament, but left without a gold medal for the first time since 2006.
Curry has been on two of the World Cup teams during that stretch, but has yet to compete in the Olympics.
“I’ve never been on the Olympic team. I’ve been on two World Cup championship gold-medal teams. But the Olympics is the experience that I want. And next year will hopefully be it,” said Curry.
