Westbrook may not be attending.... Due to his nagging foot injury, Kevin Durant will not participate in Team USA's upcoming minicamp. However, Durant will be attending the minicamp, scheduled to take place from August 11th-13th. USA Basketball Managing Director Jerry Colangelo has mandated that all 2016 Olympic hopefuls must attend this mini-camp. Thus, it's pretty easy to assume that Durant wants to be a part of Team USA during 2016. The injury news is a little bit worrisome. Durant reportedly trained with teammates from July 20th-23rd. There was no word on the intensity of that training,...

Kevin Durant is definitely looking like he's on schedule to be cleared for basketball activity in August, as previously reported.

Charles Barkley makes a good point regarding players who pine after playing in big city markets: winning a championship in a small market will make you just as famous as a a big city will. But regardless of what Chuck says, I think Kevin Durant's already proven that you can attain plenty of fame in a small market. Your browser does not support iframes.

For the Win at USA TODAY Sports takes a look at one of the nights in the D.C. streetball league that helped make Kevin Durant a legend. It was a pretty crazy duel between KD and a streetballer named... uhh... P Sh***y. The video included in the article is definitely worth a watch just to see a young Durant go all Jamal-Crawford on people. There's 3-bombs galore, naturally, but a couple of my favorite moments are some explosive dunks from KD. Here's the full video compilation:

The Lakers could be "in the mix" for Kevin Durant, which is something we'll probably hear rumors about all year. Invest at your own risk. Kevin Durant is the next megastar to hit free agency, but that blip should be off everyone's radar for now, especially the Los Angeles Lakers. It's not that the summer of Durant isn't important -- his decision is going to alter the NBA landscape akin the two times LeBron James switched up his jersey -- but it's that we're so far away and have absolutely no idea what's going to happen between now and his decision. Watching free agency unravel over the last...

The summer of 2016 is going to be all about Kevin Durant, as he enters unrestricted free agency. But as we've learned over the past few weeks, the summer of 2015 has been all about about Kevin Durant as well. The madness started when the Wizards traded up in the 2015 draft to select Kelly Oubre, who is tight with Durant. Their other offseason moves are keeping the dream alive. Every player the Wizards have acquired through trade and in free agency are on one years that preserve max cap space for a run at Durant next summer. If you thought the madness would stop before it affected the...

[Note: For those of you who don't want to read 1500 words on the Wizards' cap situation, there's a TL;DR version at the bottom of the post that answers the key questions you probably have. Also, many thanks to Mike Prada, Ward Watkins, Raf, James Straton and Nithin Kuchibhotla for their help with this.] As we all know, the Washington Wizards are going all-in to bring Kevin Durant to Washington next summer.
