Chicago Bulls star DeMar DeRozan has expressed his eagerness to don the Team USA jersey once again and compete at the 2024 Paris Olympics.
In a recent interview with Mark Medina of SportsKeeda, DeRozan shared his enthusiasm for representing his country on the international stage.
“I’m always for it. I’d love to be a part of it. I’d love to be able to represent the country again. It’s definitely an honor. If I’m asked or part of the pool that can compete for it, I’m definitely in,” the 34-year-old small forward said.
DeRozan boasts a successful history with Team USA, having won gold medals at the 2014 FIBA World Cup and the 2016 Rio Olympics.
A whole of veteran NBA stars, including the likes of LeBron James, Steph Curry and Kevin Durant, among others, have expressed interest in playing for the national team next year after the Americans finished fourth in this year’s FIBA World Cup.
