Durant led the U.S. to gold in the 2010 FIBA World championship in Turkey and returned overseas to help guide the national team to gold in the 2012 Olympic Games in London.

“I'm looking forward to playing for (coach Mike Krzyzewski) again,” Durant said. “This whole program is such a first class program, and I'm glad I'm a part of it.”

Twenty-six of the NBA's most talented young players have conveyed in Las Vegas for this week's mini-camp. Oklahoma State guard Marcus Smart and Creighton forward Doug McDermott also are training with the national team.

ORTON TO HOST CAMP

Thunder center Daniel Orton will host a boys and girls basketball camp August 7-8 at Christ the King Catholic School in Oklahoma City.

Space is limited to the first 150 campers to register.

There will be two sessions each day, a 9 a.m. to noon session for boys and girls in first through sixth grade and a 1-4 p.m. session for boys and girls in seventh to 12th grade.

Pre-registration for the camp costs $100, or $125 if registered thereafter.
