James 'probably not playing' for USA this summer

Associated Press

CLEVELAND Cavaliers superstar LeBron James says he's "probably not playing" for Team USA in this summer's world championships.

James, a captain on the U.S. team that won a gold medal at the Beijing Olympics in 2008, said he may be too busy this summer to play for the national team. He is eligible to become a free agent after this season, and said "there are a lot of decisions I need to make this summer" before he can get back on the floor.

James made the comments before Wednesday night's game against the Milwaukee Bucks.

The reigning NBA MVP is also scheduled to have a role in a movie this summer.
