      Kevin Durant Withdraws From International Competition With Team USA

      Oklahoma City Thunder forward Kevin Durant issued the following statement on his decision to withdraw from the USA Men's National Team for the remainder of the summer:

      "This was an extremely difficult decision as I take great pride in representing our country. I know that I owe it to my USA Basketball teammates to be totally invested in the experience. After going through training camp with USAB, I realized I could not fulfill my responsibilities to the team from both a time and energy standpoint. I need to take a step back and take some time away, both mentally and physically in order to prepare for the upcoming NBA season. I will be rooting for USAB and look forward to future opportunities with them."
