Holiday, 31, is in the midst of his 12th season in the NBA. He and the Bucks just defeated the Brooklyn Nets in a seven-game series to advance to the NBA's conference finals.

An NBA All-Star in 2013, Holiday has been named to the NBA All-Defensive First Team twice, including this season. His reliable two-way play has been key as the Bucks hope to chase an NBA title.

With Holiday committed, that brings the total up to nine players who reportedly plan to join Team USA for the Games. The eight other players committed to Team USA are Bam Adebayo, Bradley Beal, Devin Booker, Kevin Durant, Draymond Green, James Harden, Damian Lillard and Jayson Tatum.
