Korver in unlikely position with Team USA

Doug McDermott speaks with pride while discussing the ascension of Kyle Korver's career in recent years. The 33-year-old Korver, who is on his fourth NBA team in 11 seasons, is coming off the best season of his career and is in the mix to make the Team USA roster for the FIBA World Cup later this month in Spain. And to think Korver, who is the oldest player in Team USA's camp, almost walked away from the game a few years ago.

Durant's withdrawal comes on the heels of guys like Kevin Love and Blake Griffin also pulling out for various reasons.

On Kyle Korver and USA Basketball

Kyle Korver is still in the running for a spot on Team USA's FIBA World Cup team and, yes, that is a good thing. USA Basketball is moving forward in the wake of Paul George's injury and will reconvene in Chicago next Thursday. The team announced three cuts earlier this week which included Atlanta Hawks power forward Paul Millsap. The Hawks still have hope however, as Kyle Korver remains in the running and some people think he has a very good chance of sticking on the final 12-man roster as a three-point specialist off the bench. Given George's injury and the serious blow dealt to the...
