Deron Williams Open To Playing For Team USA At World Cup
Deron Williams is interested in playing for Team USA at the 2014 World Cup.
''I'll be 32, so I'm not going to be too old,'' Williams said. ''(Jason) Kidd was 36 the last time we did it, so I could play two more essentially. But we'll see, we'll see what happens. Four years is a long ways off.''
Williams initially planned to play for the U.S. at the 2010 Worlds, a less glamorous event that basketball officials are attempting to strengthen.
''They're starting to try to put emphasis on it and make it more important,'' Williams said. ''It's definitely important. I think the world championship is great. It's not the Olympics, but it is a big deal.''
