As part of the USA Basketball Showcase, USA Basketball also revealed that the 2024 USA Men’s National Team will play Canada at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. Live on FS1, the exhibition match is scheduled for July 10 at 7:30 p.m. PT/10:30 p.m. ET.

The USA Basketball Showcase is a set of matches designed to assist the USA Basketball National Teams in getting ready for significant events such as the FIBA World Cup and the Olympic Summer Games.

The United States will begin an overseas training window after Las Vegas, which includes exhibition matches at the O2 Arena in London on July 20 against the national teams of South Sudan and Germany on July 22.

According to USA Basketball CEO Jim Tooley, “USA Basketball is excited to return to Las Vegas as our men’s national team program looks forward to tipping off the journey to the 2024 Olympic Games there in July.” “The game at T-Mobile Arena against Canada is an important opportunity in our preparations and a great opportunity for our fans to support the U.S. national team before heading overseas.”

The USA will undergo training camp in Las Vegas, their longstanding training centre, before to the Canada game. A later time will be notified with more details.

As one of the top two teams from the FIBA Americas zone at the 2023 FIBA World Cup in September, the USA formally qualified for the 2024 Olympics. The American men are vying for their 17th straight and fifth straight Olympic gold medal.

At the 2024 Olympic Summer Games, USA Basketball will field four teams: three-on-three men’s and five-on-five men’s and women’s. With the exception of 3×3 men, who will compete in their first Olympics next summer, the USA now leads the world in both 5×5 men and women as well as 3×3 women. We’ll release more details about each of the four USA Basketball squads later on.
