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 EST
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 EST
Cousins left practice earlier this week with a knee injury, and sat out USA’s win over Brazil.

Parker knows his history.
Aug 16, 2014, 11:20 AM EST
Cousins is improving, and just how quickly he can return could affect his chances of making the roster.
Aug 15, 2014, 10:45 PM EST
It could come down to Andre Drummond and Mason Plumlee for a roster spot.
Aug 15, 2014, 8:30 PM EST
He was on the court getting up shots Friday, but had a limp.
Aug 15, 2014, 1:05 PM EST
Expect him to spend next season in the D-League.
Aug 15, 2014, 8:00 AM EST
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 EST
Gay was a late addition, but played for the World Championship team in 2010.

Cousins will undergo an MRI, but initial belief from trainers on site is that it isn’t serious.
Aug 14, 2014, 2:36 PM EST
Rudy Gay may not be Paul George or Kevin Durant, but he has a role now.
Aug 14, 2014, 1:37 PM EST
Who gets moved into the starting lineup spots that Paul George and Kevin Durant would have filled.

Playing a little bit angry is certainly okay, that passion just can’t overwhelm you rational judgement.

This was going to be his last tournament, before the stress fracture kept him out of it.
Aug 9, 2014, 5:00 PM EST
Plumlee’s minutes will go up next season, but do really think Lionel Hollins would start him over Brook Lopez or Kevin Garnett?
Aug 8, 2014, 4:57 PM EST
He averaged 7 points and 2.9 rebounds a game four years ago for Team USA in this same tournament.

Antetokounmpo reportedly contemplating D-League and European options
Aug 7, 2014, 6:32 PM EST
This is a real blow to Team USA’s gold medal chances, he was a lynchpin in the offense.
Aug 7, 2014, 1:05 PM EST
If not an outright win for Saunders, this proposed trade is as close to it as he would get.
