Is Chris Paul considering a return to the Olympics?

The Los Angeles Clippers point guard told ESPN.com that he is now considering playing in the 2016 Olympics.

Why? Because Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski is returning to coach the team.

Paul has been a member of two gold-medal runs with the team, in the 2008 and 2012 Olympics.

Will he try to go for a third when the Games head to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil? It seems possible now.

"If it had been another coach than Coach K, I was prepared to be done," Paul told ESPN.com.

According to the report, Paul was in Las Vegas coaching his CP3 All-Stars summer league program this week and watched Thursday’s Team USA intrasquad scrimmage that featured “nearly 30 of the top young NBA players.”
