As a wise man once said: if it ain't broke, don't break it. For the USA's Men's Olympic Basketball team, this means reuniting the Raptors' Kyle Lowry -- who was invited earlier today to join the squad -- and DeMar DeRozan.

As confirmed today by Shams Charania of Yahoo, DeRozan will indeed be on the team come August.

This is not DeRozan's first time with Team USA. He was on the FIBA World Cup-winning roster back in 2014 and held his own with a star-studded cast that included Steph Curry, DeMarcus Cousins and Anthony Davis. This will be his first time at the Olympics, however. And what a better way to spend his time in Brazil, then with his best buddy Lowry.
