News: Durant has withdrawn from Team USA ahead of this summer's FIBA World Cup, citing physical and mental fatigue, Yahoo! Sports reports.
Impact: Durant apparently felt the physical and mental wear from this past season was too taxing to continue with Team USA this summer. In a statement released by Durant, the reigning MVP expressed that he "could not fulfill his responsibilities to the team from both a time and energy standpoint." While Durant rests for the upcoming NBA season, Team USA will be tasked with winning this summer's World Cup without its best player in the fold.
