Caitlin Clark claims she is not let down by Olympics' rejection.

Indiana Fever player Caitlin Clark, the No. 1 choice in April's WNBA draft, said she is delighted to cheer on the United States women's basketball team at the 2016 Paris Olympics and was not unhappy to not make the team -- but she did see it as encouragement.  

The names of the 12 squad members have not yet been formally revealed by USA Basketball, but ESPN confirmed them on Saturday.  

"I'm excited for the girls that are on the team," Clark told reporters Sunday.  

"I know it's the most competitive team in the world, and I know it could have gone either way—me on the team or not on the team.  

I'll be cheering for them to win gold. I grew up watching the Olympics, so it'll be enjoyable to see them now.  

"There's no disappointment. It just gives me something to work towards; it's a dream.  

Hopefully, one day I'll be there. I believe it is just a bit extra motivation.  

You remember that. Hopefully, when four years roll around, I'll be there."
