Kevin Durant replaced on Team USA by Kings forward Rudy Gay Published: August 8, 2014

Rudy Gay has been called to replace Kevin Durant on the USA Basketball roster battling for one of the final 12 spots to go to the FIBA World Cup.

Durant withdrew from Team USA on Thursday, citing fatigue. That's opens the door for Gay, who offers versatility by being able to play both forward spots in international competition.

The U.S. needs as many frontcourt players as it can get following Durant's withdrawal and Paul George's injury. Kevin Love, Blake Griffin and LaMarcus Aldridge have all pulled out of Team USA duty this summer as well.
