Team USA recently held a minicamp in Las Vegas, to figure out which crop of young guns, will take over when LeBron, Kobe, Carmelo and a few other hang up their U.S.A. Basketball jersey’s for good.

A few, like Kevin Durant and Kevin Love or all in for the next go round.  For some like Chris Paul, it’s a wait and see situation.

ESPN.com is reporting that Paul is leaning towards returning to USA Basketball, because of the presence of Coach K.

Chris Paul has changed his mind and is leaning toward playing in the 2016 Olympics.

The Los Angeles Clippers point guard, who was on the 2008 and 2012 gold medal teams, said he was leaning heavily toward bypassing the 2016 Games — until Duke’s Mike Krzyzewski announced he was returning to coach the team.

“If it had been another coach than Coach K, I was prepared to be done,” Paul told ESPN.com.

Paul will be 31 when the 2016 Olympics, which will be held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, take place.
