Team USA wrapped up their initial training camp last night with the USA Basketball Showcase. The team will be cut from 19 to 15 tomorrow and both Danny Granger and Eric Gordon are nestled right on the cut line.
John Schuhmann has been following the camp closely and made his best guess at the next round of cuts which have both Gordon and Granger likely heading home. Even if either makes the 15-man cut, it appears likely that neither will make the 12-man team unless an unfortunate injury opens up a spot.
Gordon made four threes and certainly looked worthy of making the team last night, but the numbers game is not in his favor. Granger made a three shortly after entering the game but didn't do anything extraordinary to stand out in the scrimmage.
Meanwhile, Kevin Durant was the MVP of the game and looked head and shoulders above everyone else on the court. His whole game is so smooth and strong from that long, lean frame. So much fun to watch.
