NBA: Love to play for Team USA
LAS VEGAS (AP) — Oklahoma City Thunder forward Kevin Durant and Minnesota Timberwolves center Kevin Love say Wednesday they will be returning to play for Team USA.
The two NBA stars were on hand for the national team’s minicamp practice, and made the announcement in an impromptu news conference alongside team managing director Jerry Colangelo and head coach Mike Krzyzewski.
Durant said he made the commitment to Krzyzewski late Tuesday night, while Love officially made his announcement during the news conference.
Both were members of the United States men’s national basketball team that won the gold medal in the 2010 world championships and last year in the London Olympics.
