"He's on the way back. It's something we just have to wait and see how he progresses," Colangelo said. "First of all, he qualifies in a lot of ways. He knows our system. He's been part of USA Basketball. He's a terrific guy. He's a great competitor. Now we have to wait and see what he looks like. How quickly does he get back to that level, and then it's going to be up to him as to whether he wants to be with us next summer." USA Today Sports

The USA Basketball chairman said Cousins had "some growing up to do" when he was a member of a select team practicing against USA Basketball's Olympic team last summer. Cousins took offense to those comments and asked Colangelo about them. After much debate among USA Basketball executives, a source said, Cousins, 22, was extended an invite to take part in the minicamp with a chance to land a spot on Team USA. "You bury the past and go forward," Colangelo said. "He's invited and he's definitely on the list. New year, new summer, new opportunity." Yahoo! Sports

Krzyzewski, 66, has a 62-1 record with USA Basketball, and his tenure will now be extended to coach in the 2014 FIBA World Championship in Madrid and the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro. USA Basketball chairman Jerry Colangelo has stayed confident since the end of the 2012 Olympics that he could persuade Krzyzewski to return. He waited until the end of Duke's season in March to court Krzyzewski. In an interview on Saturday, Colangelo said he would not begin contacting other candidates until Krzyzewski said no. SI.com

USA Basketball has scheduled a news conference on Thursday at Duke University, where Krzyzewski coaches. Krzyzewski had adamantly maintained the 2012 London Olympics were his last Olympics as coach. He said the prior to the Olympics, during the Olympics and as recently as February. But USA Basketball chairman Jerry Colangelo remained patient and gave Krzyzewski enough time to reconsider.
