The 36-year-old Divac told B-92 radio on Monday he has "given enough" to the national team and it's time to leave.
More than a dozen players from Serbia-Montenegro play in the NBA, including Kings star Peja Stojakovic. Serbia-Montenegro, the former Yugoslavia, is a favorite to make the Olympic final against the United States.
Divac said Detroit Pistons centers Darko Milicic and Zeljko Rebraca, and Predrag Drobnjak of the Los Angeles Clippers can help the national team more than he can at the games in August.
"The best should play for the national team, and I'm no longer its best center," Divac said.
