The Buffs’ legend will hopefully add a gold medal to his incredible year.

Derrick White will be representing all of us, Americans and Colorado Buffaloes fans, at the 2024 Paris Olympics. This news was first reported by ESPN’s Marc J. Spears.

Celtics guard Derrick White will be replacing Kawhi Leonard with USA Basketball, a source told @andscape.

The forever Buff and current Celtic was named to Team USA’s Olympic roster following Kawhi Leonard’s withdrawal from the team. White will step in for Leonard as a defense-first role player to compliment talents like LeBron James, Stephen Curry and Kevin Durant.

White is one three Boston teammates on the roster, as he joins Jayson Tatum and previous gold medalist Jrue Holiday. The Celtics were utterly dominant in their championship run in no small part to their selflessness and defensive integrity, attributes most clearly demonstrated by the kid from Parker, Colorado.

Also on the roster are Bam Adebayo, Devin Booker, Stephen Curry, Anthony Davis, Kevin Durant, Anthony Edwards and Joel Embiid and Tyrese Haliburton. On paper this may be the most stacked Olympic roster, perhaps even better than those assembled in 1992 or 2008.
