Two-time Olympic gold medalist LeBron James is ready to commit to the 2024 Paris Summer Games, The Athletic reported Monday.
James, 38, led Team USA to the top of the podium in Beijing (2008) and London (2012) and also won a bronze at Athens in 2004.
The NBA’s all-time leading scorer did not play for the gold medal-winning American sides in Rio de Janeiro in 2016 or in Tokyo in 2021.
James already called “multiple stars” to recruit them to join him in the French capital next summer, according to the report. Those stars include Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant, Anthony Davis, Jayson Tatum and Draymond Green.
The U.S. is expected to field a strong team following a disappointing fourth-place finish at this month’s FIBA World Cup.
USA Basketball managing director Grant Hill said he is aware of James’ interest but declined further comment to The Athletic.
