How the Olympics postponement will affect the Phoenix Suns

After much speculation and countries like Canada and Australia bowing out individually, the 2020 Tokyo Olympics has been officially postponed up to a year. To be more specific, the official statement reads, “…the IOC President and the Prime Minister of Japan have concluded that the Games of the XXXII Olympiad in Tokyo must be rescheduled to a date beyond 2020 but not later than summer 2021.” The question we have is, how does this affect the Phoenix Suns?

There are two rostered players who represented their country in the 2019 FIBA World Cup last summer. Aron Baynes joined his fellow Boomers from Australia and made an impressive run, while Ricky Rubio led his Spanish national team to the championship and MVP honors.
