Colangelo considers staying with USA team

Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX (AP) -- After building an Olympic gold medal-winning team, Jerry Colangelo might make a run at another championship with USA Basketball.

Colangelo says he's leaning toward continuing.

The former Phoenix Suns owner took over as USA Basketball's managing director in 2005. He appointed Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski to lead the team and, in a change of policy, required players to make a three-year commitment.

The Americans swept the gold medal in Beijing. It's their first in a major international tournament since 2000.

Colangelo says he's not sure if his duties would change. The U.S.' next major competition is the 2010 world championships in Turkey.
