The NBA offseason has been busy for the Kings' De'Aaron Fox and Harrison Barnes.
They've been in the midst of training for the FIBA World Cup and are two of the guys vying for spots on Team USA's 12-man roster that will travel to Australia for a tune-up and then China for the tournament itself.
During a recent workout, Fox and Barnes had some fun with a little 3-point shootout at the end of practice:

Fox's range looked really good, and they appeared to be having a good time. But this is a huge commitment, and they won't be getting much of a break if they make Team USA and the group advances to the gold medal game on Sept. 15.

That would leave the two with fewer than two weeks before having to report to Kings training camp beginning in late September.
That could explain why there were so many to drop out of Team USA and no longer continue the ordeal.
