According to Charania, Durant is part of a star-studded group led by LeBron James that is prepared to commit. The group also includes Stephen Curry, Anthony Davis, Jayson Tatum and Draymond Green.

Booker, Damian Lillard, De’Aaaron Fox and Kyrie Irving all separately have “serious interest” in committing to the team.

This news comes one day after Team USA placed fourth in this year’s FIBA World Cup. None of these players were on the roster for the tournament.

Durant and Booker last suited up for Team USA in 2021 for the Tokyo Olympics. This was Booker’s first tournament with Team USA.
