Team USA considering Duncan Robinson to replace Bradley Beal?

Starting shooting guard Bradley Beal has been ruled out for the Tokyo Olympics after testing positive for COVID-19, leading to the cancellation of Friday's exhibition game between the U.S. and Australia. Forward Jerami Grant has also been placed in the health-and-safety protocols and his status is up in the air.

As Team USA evaluates who will replace Beal, it's been rumored that Miami's Duncan Robinson is receiving consideration, according to Grant Afseth of Sports Illustrated.

Robinson would surely help Team USA's depth, as he spent time at shooting guard, small forward and power forward last season with the Heat. He would also provide the team with long-range shooting, which is much-needed after losing Beal.

Over the course of his three-year NBA career, Robinson has averaged 12.3 points and 3.3 threes per game while shooting 42.3% from deep. If selected, Robinson would be the only player from the 2018 NBA Draft on the team.

Team USA is just 1-2 in exhibition play, but the team remains focused on their goal of winning an Olympic gold medal this summer. Team USA's first official game vs. France kicks off on July 25 in Tokyo.
