Team USA "likely" to add 1 or 2 players to list of finalists

Mrs. Tyler Thompsonover 9 years


Back in January, 20 NBA players were named to the final list of candidates for Team USA's Olympic roster and since, five (Dwight Howard, Derrick Rose, Chauncey Billups, LaMarcus Aldridge, and Lamar Odom) have had to withdraw their nominations due to injury or in Odom's case, deactivation. Yesterday, USA Basketball chairman Jerry Colangelo announced he may add "1 or 2" players to the list of finalists, and sources tell's Marc Stein that DeMarcus Cousins, Anthony Davis and Detroit Pistons center Greg Monroe are among the big men under consideration. If Davis and/or Cousins makes the preliminary roster, they'll be considered for the final 12-man, six alternate roster, which will be decided sometime before the deadline of June 18th. Even if our former Cats don't make the squad, they stand a good chance of making the USA Select team, which will scrimmage Team USA in Las Vegas as it prepares for the London games. #BrowDownParliament #DeMarcusCalling
