Kevin Love will accept an invitation to play for the United States in the 2016 Olympics should he receive one.

Love played for the USA in 2010 in the World Championships and the 2012 Olympics. Love was scheduled to be on the team for the 2014 FIBA World Cup but the limbo of his trade to the Cleveland Cavaliers led to his withdrawal.

Love's inside-outside game is well-suited for national team competition, but he has significant competition at his position.
