Fox told USA Basketball of his choice Saturday, a few hours before the team would board a plane for Australia and final preparations for the World Cup that starts in China this month. According to Chris Haynes, De'Aaron Fox will become the latest player to leave the national team.

Fox had been one of the biggest stars still available for Team USA and seemed destined to play a significant role with the team when the anticipated worldwide competition kicks off next month.

Fox is doing so to focus on his goal of helping the Sacramento Kings qualify for the postseason for the first time since the 2005-06 season.
