Two-time Olympic gold medalist Deron Williams of the Brooklyn Nets says he would be ''definitely open'' to playing for the United States in the 2014 World Cup of Basketball. Williams, who helped the Americans win the gold medal in Beijing in 2008 and defend their title last month in London, says he loves representing the U.S. and wouldn't rule out returning for a third Olympics in four years, when he would be 32. For now, the All-Star guard is focused on the Nets' debut in Brooklyn. He posted a picture of players working out Monday on his Twitter page and expects the team to be strong in its first season since leaving New Jersey. Williams decided to stay with the Nets in July instead of joining his hometown Dallas Mavericks.
