Cousins was long safe and part of the USA rotation.

Doesn’t matter who didn’t show up, the guys that did make Team USA one of two teams with a legit shot at gold.

Derrick Rose struggles off the bench against Slovenia
Aug 25, 2014, 8:29 PM EDT
He’s going to be needed against a couple teams with size. Like Spain.
Aug 24, 2014, 12:30 PM EDT
Three backup centers on a team that wants to play small was an interesting roster choice, but they are comfortable with it.
Aug 23, 2014, 1:20 AM EDT
Team USA kept four centers on the roster. That’s a bit of a surprise.

The players who got DNP-CDs in this one may be the ones who stay home.
Aug 22, 2014, 6:21 PM EDT
DeMar DeRozan, Andre Drummond, Gordon Hayward, Chandler Parsons, Kyle Korver all possibilities for chopping block
Aug 22, 2014, 11:44 AM EDT
Krzyzewski – surprise, surprise – also reportedly likes Mason Plumlee, who played at Duke

Stephen Curry: “We’re still taking applications.”

Drummond is still a likely cut,
Aug 20, 2014, 11:15 PM EDT
16 players will practice and be available for Friday’s game against Puerto Rico, but the roster needs to be trimmed to 12 in advance of the FIBA World Cup.
Aug 19, 2014, 1:43 PM EDT
Derrick Rose had another light day.
Aug 19, 2014, 12:43 PM EDT
From the outside looking in, it seems three spots will be divided between Mason Plumlee, Andre Drummond, Chandler Parsons, Gordon Hayward and Kyle Korver.
What four players left likely to get cut from Team USA roster? Things don’t look good for Andre Drummond.
Aug 18, 2014, 11:58 AM EDT
Andre Drummond, DeMar DeRozan and Gordon Hayward were healthy and got a DNP-CD Saturday against Brazil. Not a good sign.
Aug 17, 2014, 8:30 PM EDT
Cousins left practice earlier this week with a knee injury, and sat out USA’s win over Brazil.

USA wins 95-78 as Rose returns to the United Center for the first time in nine months.
Aug 16, 2014, 1:00 PM EDT
Parker knows his history.
Aug 16, 2014, 11:20 AM EDT
Cousins is improving, and just how quickly he can return could affect his chances of making the roster.
Aug 15, 2014, 10:45 PM EDT
It could come down to Andre Drummond and Mason Plumlee for a roster spot.
Aug 15, 2014, 8:30 PM EDT
He was on the court getting up shots Friday, but had a limp.
Aug 15, 2014, 1:05 PM EDT
Expect him to spend next season in the D-League.
Aug 15, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT
My guess, the final starting spot goes to Chandler Parsons. If not him Rudy Gay or Gordon Hayward get it.
Aug 14, 2014, 6:55 PM EDT
Gay was a late addition, but played for the World Championship team in 2010.
Aug 14, 2014, 3:56 PM EDT
Cousins will undergo an MRI, but initial belief from trainers on site is that it isn’t serious.
