Team USA announced Durant’s decision on Thursday, stating that Durant “expressed that he is just physically and mentally drained from the NBA season and his attention to his many responsibilities.”

Part of Durant’s decision may have come from seeing Paul George suffer a season-ending leg injury during the team’s exhibition last week. Durant joins the likes of Kevin Love, Blake Griffin, LaMarcus Aldridger and Kawhi Leonard as players that have withdrawn from consideration for Team USA.

Durant is coming off a season where he averaged a career-high 32 points per game, shooting 50.3 percent from the field. Durant also averaged 7.4 rebounds and 5.5 assists per game. Durant is averaging 27.4 points per game for his career.

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, the Oklahoma City Thunder currently have 6/1 odds to win the NBA Finals in 2015. The Cleveland Cavaliers are favored at 5/2 while the San Antonio Spurs have 11/2 odds.
