ABCNews.com(NEW YORK) -- Donald Trump says he supports three debates with Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, but he has a problem with the times.

"It's against two NFL games," he told ABC's George Stephanopoulos. "I got a letter from the NFL saying this is ridiculous. Why are the debates...cause the NFL doesn't wanna go against the debates. Cause the debates are gonna be pretty massive from what I understand."

An NFL spokesman disputed Trump's claim that a letter was sent complaining about the scheduled dates.

"We did not write a letter but we obviously prefer the debates on a different night than scheduled games," the NFL spokesman said in a statement to ABC News.

The Trump campaign later responded in a statement to ABC News.

"Mr. Trump was made aware of the conflicting dates by a source close to the league. It's unfortunate that millions of voters will be disenfranchised by these chosen dates," the statement said.

Scott Clarke / ESPN Images(CHICAGO) -- Despite being one of the most decorated players in the NBA, Dwayne Wade called the Chicago Bulls "Jimmy [Butler's] team" when he was introduced to the media Friday.

"This is Jimmy's team," Wade said of his new teammate. "It won't be a tug and pull whose team it is." Wade, 34, who had played for the Miami Heat since 2003, signed a two-year, $47 million deal with the Bulls this month.

"I've know him since Marquette," the 12-time All-Star also said about Butler. "I have tremendous respect for him. This would not have happened if it hadn't been for Jimmy Butler. That was huge."

Earlier this month, Bulls point guard Rajon Rondo said the team now had "three alphas" which included himself, Wade, and Butler, but also called the Bulls Butler's team.

Harry How/Getty Images(OXNARD, Calif.) -- Damien Wilson will start training camp with the Dallas Cowboys on the PUP list because of a paintball accident.

Owner and general manager Jerry Jones revealed the second-year linebacker's injury at a press conference Friday, and said according to ESPN that it was "a serious enough issue to keep him off the field for a couple of weeks."

Executive vice president Stephen Jones said he did not know the details of the accident.

Wilson will not be the only player starting camp with an injury; Darren McFadden is suffering a broken elbow and Lance Dunbar and Benson Mayowa are rehabbing knees.

The seven-player deal is contingent on everyone passing a physical exam, according to ESPN.

ABC News(NEW YORK) -- The U.S. Olympic women's basketball team is ready for Rio.

The ladies stopped by ABC News' Good Morning America Friday as they gear up for the 2016 Summer Games.

"Well luckily, a lot of them had played in previous Olympics and lot of them were together in London so, there's not a lot that you have to do that's brand new and they're all so unselfish and they all want to play together and they all want the same thing, so it makes it easy," said head coach Geno Auriemma.

The team will be going for their sixth straight gold medal. Players Diana Taurasi, Sue Bird and Tamika Catchings have won gold in Athens, Beijing and London.

"For some of us, it's our fourth Olympics, some third, second," Taurasi said. "It's always a different group so it's always exciting to see how we're going to come together, what kind of team it's going to be and I think we just have a group that's ready, focused and to go down there and do work."

Bird said this group is focusing on the journey ahead of them.

"The players that we played with before, they set the tone," she said. "We're just kind of following suit and we're hoping we can show the younger players how to do it and like Di said, everyone team's different. You know, just cause we won before, doesn't mean we win again."

As for the toughest competitor on the court, "If I had to pick one, I'd say Australia," Taurasi said.

Allen Kee / ESPN Images(FOXBOROUGH, Mass.) -- Despite being sidelined for the first four games of the regular season, Tom Brady joined the New England Patriots in Foxborough, Massachusetts Thursday for the start of the team's training camp.

The Patriots quarterback practiced alongside his teammates, including Jimmy Garoppolo, who will take over for Brady during his absence.

"Tom will return as our starting quarterback when he comes back," Patriots coach Bill Belichick told reporters Wednesday. "But in the meantime, we have to prioritize the first part of the schedule and that will be to get Jimmy ready to go."

Brady, 38, was suspended four games over a conspiracy to deflate footballs. He will sit out New England's September season opener against the Arizona Cardinals and subsequent games against the Miami Dolphins, Houston Texans and Buffalo Bills.
