Los Angeles Lakers forward Anthony Davis is pulling out of participation in Team USA and the FIBA Basketball World Cup this summer.

Davis, acquired by the Lakers this month in a trade from the New Orleans Pelicans, said he will not participate in the USA Basketball training camp and FIBA Basketball World Cup to focus on the upcoming NBA season, per multiple reports.

Davis, 26, won gold medals with Team USA at the 2012 Olympics in London and at the 2014 World Cup in Spain.

He is reportedly still interested in playing in the 2020 Olympics.
