Looks like they didn't make it.

It's not looking good for Tyreke Evans, O.J. Mayo and Gerald Wallace.

Sources close to the situation told FanHouse on Tuesday they're expected to be among the cuts when Team USA on Wednesday reveals the 15 out of 19 remaining players who will be invited to New York for the Aug. 10-16 training camp in preparation for next month's World Championship in Turkey. As to who might be the fourth cut, sources said that was still being debated.

Thoughts?

Evans needs the ball in his hands a team of second fiddles to shine. His style just wont work in a bunch of high level guys playing team ball.

Very surprised Gerald Wallace didnt make it.

Agreed. Stephen Curry and Eric Gordon proved in that Blue/White scrimmage that their shooting is vital. Evans didn't play, and Wallace really didn't fit in. The same thing happened to him in the All-Star game this year. He's a really good player, but his game doesn't mesh well when playing with other stars for some reason.

I'm a Bulls fan, but that's very idiotic.
For one, Evans is injured. And making the roster, doesn't make one player better than the other. I'm sure far more people would take Gerald Wallace over Chandler, yet Wallace was the one that didn't make it.

Regardless, I'm surprised Lopez made it, he really shouldn't have.

Cause he had issues with his ankle WHEN HE WAS ALREADY THERE.
And, I don't see what's idiotic about it at all. It's a minor injury anyway, but if it keeps you from performing most of the tryouts, you probably won't make it. Doesn't mean Evans shouldn't try anyway. It obviously means a lot to him to represent his country.

I understand it means a lot to him, but it could affect this season or his future if the injury gets worse or he tweeks it even worse. i give him credit, but it wasnt exactly the smartest thing and i am sure the kings were kind of pissed he didnt just drop out of it. theres no shame in quitting because you don't wanna riskinjury and possibly the up coming season and or future.

I'm only kinda surprised McGhee wasn't cut. The other players mentioned had little/no impact on the Blue/White game.

So it's -

Rose/Westbrook/Billups/Rondo
Curry/Iguodala/Gordon (I have no idea who would start)
Durant//Granger/Gay
Odom/Green
Lopez/Chandler/McGhee


Too many SF's in my opinion. I could see Granger, Gordon, Iguodala and/or one of the PG's not making it.

zambo4president
07-28-2010, 04:10 PM
Tyreke doesn't surprise me he was hurt anyways. Mayo looked pretty good I thought he was one of the tweeners though, Gordon's better for the international play anyways. McGee I was really pulling for but I guess his inexperience killed him here. Wallace's offensive game isn't very strong but I figured his defensive presence alone would have guaranteed him a spot.

BKNets21
07-28-2010, 04:11 PM
I would've taken Mayo over Gordon and probably kept Wallace over someone.

Evans is injured though.

Why is Curry, Gordon and Chandler on the team over Evans and Wallace?

Beyond the fact that Evans ankle was bothering him, Curry is clearly the player that fits their needs rather than 'Reke for international ball. Stephen shoots lights out (probably the best on the team), can needle a pass and has a high basketball IQ - things that are a must at the international level. Why have Tyreke when you have Rose, Westbrook and Rondo? He offers them a lesser version of the other guards. It's funny to me that this would surprise you. Beyond that, Curry's just flat better - shrug.

Danny Granger
Andre Iguodala
Rudy Gay
Kevin Durant
Kevin Love
Lamar Odom
Jeff Green
Tyson Chandler

I don't see Gordon making the cut, but beyond that it's a crapshoot. I think they might take Green's versatility and shooting touch over Love, and Rudy Gay is probably the lesser of Durant/Ai2/Granger - so I could see him going home as well (though I hope it's Granger, because it will be fun to watch Rudy and Iggy posterize the Euro's). Homerness aside, Steph Curry isn't going home - best shooter on the team along with KD - they need him.

Easy this team needs shooting in size . curry and gordon can shoot better than evans and wallace and chandler has the size. i think gordon over mayo might be the only questionable thing here. i doubt gordon gets much playing time anyways though

I'd cut the bolded guys.

There's not much need for Gordon when you've got Steph and Chauncey. There is absolutely no need for Gay when you have Iggy, Granger and Durant. Odom and Love pretty much do exactly what Green does but better.

Eric Gordon, Either Westbrook or Curry, probably Westbrook, Curry could play 1/2. The team is PG rich, gotta keep Rondo, Rose and Billups.

And Danny Granger or Jeff Green.

Probably Westbrook, Green and Gordon.

Gotta keep the Centers, with Perk injured, you need all the size you can get. I would have loved to see Perkins in these games, he would probably see some significant playing time.

Rondo is the best Passer, Defender and playmaker (setting up other players) on the team. It would be pathetic if he got cut before Westbrook or Curry. Defense is important, I see Curry and his fragile looking self getting cut.

I think that statement is an opinion, and don't go looking at last years stats or the year before it is not relevant. What matters is what they are doing in the here and now with the guys the coaches put on the floor. Not what they did while playing during the regular NBA season.

I think Westbrook and Curry can do those things and still shoot better than Rondo.

At the end of the day it is really up to the coaches to decide. I will just wait and see what happens.

Green better get cut. I still think Lopez gets cut (we have enough centers in Love and Chandler for the international game). And last one would be tough. Personally, I'd cut Westbrook since we'd have enough pg's in Rondo and Rose, and Billups when necessary.

Being that Gay, Granger and Durant aren't PF's... maybe not. Green isn't terrible at all, what are you talking about? The versatility of having a 6'9"-6-10" guy who can shoot a three is probably something they're interested in. But I wouldn't be surprised if he got cut so they could shore up some size + rebounding and keep Odom + Love in the block along with Chandler and Lopez.

Westbrook is absolutely killing it there, highly doubt he gets cut. He's probably a top 5 offensive threat on that team.

Green might be most fit of pf out of those 3, but he also plays the worst. Let's be honest, he's a chucker. It's why his ts% sucks for a big man. Granger, Gay, and Durant are all at least 6'9 (well Gay is 6'8, but still). Green played like crap. And has a pretty bad A/To ratio.

Im disappointed that McGee got cut. I think he could have brought something interesting to this team, and I think they really needed the insurance of a third big man.

Rondo, Gay and Green are the final 3 cuts IMO. They already have a lot of shooting with Billups, Curry, Gordon, Durant, and Granger, so the need for a high volume scorer in Gay is pointless. There is enough talented PG play so Rondo is a luxury, and JG will compete with Kevin Love and Lamar Odom for the PF spot. Odom is a more polished version of him, and Love is a fierce rebounder with the best outlet pass in the league (which is key in international ball). They are the odd men out.

But these cuts shouldn't have shocked anyone.

Makes sense. Wallace is similar to A.I. but not quite as good of an offensive player, Evans is the athletic non-shooter that hasn't gotten team U.S.A. into trouble in the past (and was injured) and Mayo just kind of got lost in the numbers.

McGee is a surprise/not surprise for me: with the lack of size and shot-blocking, it would make sense to give him a longer look/late addition, still raw probably not up for world competition.

I think Gay has a shot over Granger, but I wouldn't disagree with your analysis.

I understand it means a lot to him, but it could affect this season or his future if the injury gets worse or he tweeks it even worse. i give him credit, but it wasnt exactly the smartest thing and i am sure the kings were kind of pissed he didnt just drop out of it. theres no shame in quitting because you don't wanna riskinjury and possibly the up coming season and or future.

he has not practiced or played since he hurt his ankle

I think Brook will be one of the next three cut....his style of play is not coach K.....Coach K doesnt know what to do with real centers

Nooo, no.. Curry's better.. But you can never have enough shooters on a team.
& I don't even know hahaha.. Maybe because Coach K can't handle his swag lol

Yeah I agree that Curry is better. Also BJ and Wall should've at least been invited, they deserve more respect than that.

not trying to start a pissing match but why exactly does John Wall "Deserve" anything right now...he is a rookie who has yet to prove himself

I get what you're saying, but hes actually a very good player (in college). Why not give the first overall pick an invite at least? I'm not saying Wall would be a huge asset but it wouldn't hurt to invite him.

why is gerald wallace cut?
whats going on here
...

What?
07-29-2010, 05:05 AM
None of the cuts surprised me other then I wasn't sure if they were going to cut gordon or mayo

Wallace sucked at the scrimage and his game isn't ment for international play, Mcgee is n't as good as Chandler or Lopez, evans was injured

What?
07-29-2010, 05:07 AM
Also so now it seems Lopez and Chandler are a lock and Gordon and Curry are basically locks unless they put durant at the 2

Tyreke missed practice all week with an injury. As for Gordon over Wallace, no clue. Curry can play the SG in fiba and Chandler gives them good size. Gordon sucks.

Gordon is one of the best shooters on that USA team, and can score in bunches. That's two things Gerald Wallace cannot offer for that USA team. They don't really need his style of play in FIBA.
