Stephen Curry Says He Plans on Playing in 2020 Olympics
Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry says he plans on playing for Team USA in the 2020 Summer Olympic Games in Tokyo.
He is one of the first players to pledge his commitment since the United States' poor performance at the FIBA World Cup in China.
"That is the plan, for sure," Curry said to ESPN. "You know, obviously knock on wood, you don't want any injuries or things like that to interfere."
Team USA was eliminated in the quarterfinals, failing to medal after losing to France and Serbia.
Eight—including the United States—have qualified for the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo. The remaining four teams will earn berths during qualifying tournaments in July.
Curry has never been on an Olympic team. He has two gold medals playing for Team USA during the World Cup in 2010 and 2014.
"But the Olympics is the experience that I want. And next year will hopefully be it," Curry said.
