It's not surprising that Andre Iguodala is focused.

He's spending little time thinking about the Sixers' many roster moves. Instead, he's thinking about adding to Team USA as much as he can.

"I haven't really sat down and thought about it too much. I have gotten some texts from guys telling me about what is going on," Iguodala said. "My focus and energy has been on the USA team, trying to help the team win gold. My role is very different [than with the Sixers], which is a big change, but I am just trying to fit in with the guys and make the game easier for them."

The process to become an Olympian began many years ago when Iguodala was on the under-18 national team that traveled to Venezuela. That team included two of his current USA teammates: Carmelo Anthony and Deron Williams. Years later, Iguodala was a member of the select team, just as Jrue Holiday was this summer.

Because of the time he has committed to USA basketball and his relationship with Coach Mike Krzyzewski, Iguodala liked his chances of going to London.

"I felt good going in," Iguodala said of going to Las Vegas July 5 for the final roster cut. "I was trying to fill a void. I knew defensively I am always at the top of coach's list. Coach K and I have a really good relationship and a lot of history going back to the World Championships in Turkey so I felt pretty good."

In the United States' exhibition game victory over the Dominican Republic on Thursday, Iguodala was named MVP after scoring 18 points on 7-of-9 shooting.
