LOS ANGELES (AP) De'Aaron Fox of the Sacramento Kings surprisingly withdrew from USA Basketball's national team Saturday, meaning the Americans now have 13 candidates for the 12-man World Cup roster.

Fox told USA Basketball of his choice a few hours before the team was to fly to Australia for final preparations for this month's tournament in China. Fox was in the team's plans for the Australia trip, and it was believed he would have been a strong candidate for the World Cup squad.

Fox played a team-low six minutes in the Americans' 90-81 win over Spain in a pre-World Cup exhibition at Anaheim, California, on Friday night. He had two points and one assist, and the U.S. outscored Spain by 10 points in his brief stints on the floor.
