Fantasy Impact: Edwards is coming off a remarkable season, averaging 19.3 points, 4.7 rebounds, and 2.9 assists per game finishing as the runner-up for the Rookie of the Year. This experience with Team USA should only boost his value going into next season.


Toronto Raptors PG Kyle Lowry has reportedly declined the invitation to join the 12-man Team USA roster at the 2021 Tokyo Olympics, per Adrian Wojnarowski. (Source: Adrian Wojnarowski on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: The veteran point guard has reportedly declined an invite to join the 12-man Team USA roster due to his impending free agency. Lowry played in just 46 games on a Raptors team that lost 45 games and finished fifth in the Atlantic Division, averaging 17.1 points and 7.3 assists per game during the 2020-21 season.


Golden State Warriors All-Star PG Steph Curry has reportedly declined the invite to join the 12-man Team USA roster at the 2021 Summer Olympics in Tokyo, per Shams Charania. (Source: Shams Charania on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Curry had an MVP-caliber season, averaging 32 points per game, which included going 42 percent from three-point range and averaging a ridiculous 5.3 triples per game. The perennial All-Star had been deciding whether to join the Team USA roster at the 2021 Summer Olympics in Tokyo before ultimately bowing out.


Utah Jazz PG Donovan Mitchell has reportedly declined the invite to join the 12-man Team USA roster, opting to rest and rehab his right ankle injury, per Adrian Wojnarowski. (Source: Adrian Wojnarowski on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: The All-Star PG for the Utah Jazz will not lend his talents to the Team USA roster, using the offseason to rest and rehab his right ankle. The fourth-year point guard out of the University of Lousiville had a spectacular season, averaging 26.4 points and 5.2 assists per game. He also balled out against the Los Angeles Clippers during the Western Conference Semifinals but was unable to lift the Jazz over Kawhi Leonard and Paul George, losing four consecutive games after winning their first two.


Brooklyn Nets PG/SG James Harden has reportedly committed to joining the 12-man Team USA roster at the 2021 Tokyo Olympics, per Shams Charania. (Source: Shams Charania on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Harden played through an aggravated hamstring injury in Game 6 and Game 7 against the Milwaukee Bucks, totaling 38 points, 16 assists, and five steals across a combined 93 minutes of playing time. Team USA will look to return to the gold medal podium at the 2021 Summer Olympics in Tokyo, which is set to occur from late July into early August, allowing for players like Harden to compete and return with enough time to prepare for the 2021-22 NBA season.

The 23-year old center has committed to joining the 12-man roster for Team USA, who will compete against NBA stars from other countries to attempt winning back-to-back gold medals.


Spencer Dinwiddie is planning to decline his $12.3 million player option and test the open market in 2021. (Source: Adrian Wojnarowski on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Dinwiddie missed most of this past season due to an ACL injury, so he'll be looking for a team to bet on his talent to recover and be the player he was before. He averaged 20.6 points and 6.8 assists per game in his last full season.


Dallas Mavericks All-Star PG Luka Doncic spoke with the media on Monday and hinted towards accepting a supermax extension to remain with the Dallas Mavericks thru the 2026-27 season, per Tim MacMahon. (Source: Tim MacMahon on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Doncic is expected to sign the first rookie supermax extension worth over $200 million this offseason to extend his tenure with the Mavericks until the 2026-27 season. Doncic smiled and responded to reporters with "I think you know the answer,” when questioned about his decision to sign the extension. The Slovenian point guard averaged 27.7 points, 8.6 assists, and 8.0 rebounds per game this season and nearly led Dallas to a first-round upset over Kawhi Leonard and the Clippers, falling short in Game 7 where he scored 46 points and dished 14 assists. Doncic certainly showed why he is deserving of the extension with his play against the Clippers, emerging as one of the league's best young players at just 22 years old.
