Kevin Durant All but Guaranteed Team USA Spot

Thunder All-Star forward Kevin Durant is all but guaranteed a spot on Team USA this summer for the World Championships in Turkey, according to USA basketball chairman Jerry Colangelo.

"Durant has kind of separated himself,” Colangelo said. "If you look at his numbers and what he brings to the table… He came close to making it last time as a kid. So without overkilling this thing, I would just say I’m almost certain Durant will be part of our next squad regardless of who else is on it.”
