Report: Durant expected to commit to Team USA for Olympics
The 11-time All-Star won gold with USA Basketball at the 2012 and 2016 Olympics in London and Rio de Janeiro, respectively. He was also on the 2010 FIBA World Championship team that defeated host Turkey in the final.
Durant averaged 26.9 points, 7.1 rebounds, 5.6 assists, and 1.3 blocks while shooting 45% from deep in his first season back after tearing his Achilles during the 2019 NBA Finals. While the long layoff didn't appear to affect his game, the 2014 MVP missed nearly two months during the season due to a hamstring strain.
His campaign ended Saturday when the Nets fell in overtime to the Milwaukee Bucks in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference semifinals. Durant scored 48 points in the loss, breaking the record for the most points ever recorded in a Game 7.
Team USA will hold its training camp July 6-18 at the UNLV campus.
