Between the years 2009 and 2012, he was a member of the Texas A&M Aggies’ collegiate basketball team. As a sophomore, he averaged 14.3 points per game while leading the Aggies in scoring. This earned him a spot on the Big 12’s second team.

After his junior year, K. Middleton entered the 2012 NBA draught and was picked by the Detroit Pistons with the 39th overall choice. During his first NBA season, he split time between the Pistons and the NBA Development League’s Fort Wayne Mad Ants.

American basketball sensation K. Middleton will be one of several bright lights for Team USA at the 2021 Tokyo Olympics. The 29-year-old, who stands at an impressive 2.01 metres, is one of 12 members of Team USA in Tokyo, where they want to win their eighth straight Olympic gold medal.

Among his teammates are two-time NBA champion Kevin Durant and six-time NBA All-Star Damian Lillard. Durant has won two Olympic gold medals, and Lillard has won two. Special significance attaches to K. Middleton Olympic participation. The Milwaukee Bucks, which featured the two-time NBA All-Star, won the NBA title a little over a week ago.

His teammate Jrue Holiday and the Phoenix Suns’ runner-up, Devin Booker, also showed up late to the Games in Japan’s capital. K. Middleton and Jrue Holiday, two players for the Milwaukee Bucks, will be leaving for Tokyo to play for the United States men’s national basketball team in the Olympic Games.

Since the Bucks made the NBA Finals, they and Suns star Devin Booker were unable to attend the national team’s training camp in Las Vegas from July 6-18. Where they would have competed in exhibition games against Nigeria, Australia, and Argentina.

The three will travel to Japan together on a chartered flight booked by USA Basketball in time for the opening ceremony. On Sunday, they will be available to play in a qualification game against France.
