James Harden expressed his desire to play in the FIBA Basketball World Cup in China this summer.

"Of course I want to play. It's an opportunity to represent your country, go out there and play basketball. It's something I love doing. If that opportunity presents itself, I'll be in. Not everyone gets that opportunity. As a basketball player, that's one of the highest points you can get for basketball," said Harden.

Harden averaged 14.2 points for the 2014 team that won the gold medal in Spain.
