Despite Mike Krzyzewski’s return, going forward, USA Basketball will reportedly be without the services of assistant coach Mike D’Antoni (who has been with the program since 2006, and won two gold medals.) Per the NY Post: “Former Knicks coach Mike D’Antoni has told Mike Krzyzewski he will not be rejoining his new Olympic staff, according to a league source. Team USA will announce Krzyzewski’s return (Thursday) as U.S. Olympic coach but D’Antoni will no longer be part of it. According to the source, D’Antoni, who now coaches the Lakers, turned down the job as he didn’t want to make another four-year commitment because of his family.”
