And then there was one.

Harrison Barnes is the last Kings player left on the Team USA roster after point guard De'Aaron Fox decided to withdraw Saturday, one week after big man Marvin Bagley did the same.

Fox was scheduled to travel with the team this week to Australia for two friendlies, but he'll now stay home to focus on helping the Kings end their 13-year NBA playoff drought.

Fox's choice was a bit shocking and confusing, considering what he had said in recent days, but in the end, it's the right thing to do based on all the travel that would come along with playing another two weeks until the FIBA World Cup in China.

Barnes, on the other hand, is one of the sage veterans on the team, and it appears he plans to stick it out.

The 13 remaining players on the Team USA roster got together for a photo shoot in Marina del Rey on Saturday, and Barnes was all smiles.

Fox impressed his coaches and teammates during Team USA's training camp, but he never found a consistent role. Barnes, though, started the friendly against Spain on Friday, and finished with two points and three rebounds in 14 minutes.

With the Kings traveling to India for two preseason games in October, Barnes could have three long trips in his future if he also goes to China with Team USA.

Hope you're able to sleep on planes, Harrison.
