Rabjohns: Eric Gordon Makes Initial Cut With Team USA

Eric Gordon's strong showing in the USA Basketball Showcase helped make his case for making the cut with Team USA.

Jeff Rabjohns reports today that  Eric Gordon will be part of the 15-man roster that will continue preparing for the World Championships in New York in mid-August.

Rabjohns doesn't mention the fate of Danny Granger, but since most observers assumed EJ wouldn't make the cut, this news doesn't help Granger's slim chances of surviving the cut. I have yet to see any other reports on the roster cuts from USA Basketball.

Rabjohns has been following Gordon's progress from high school through college and on to the pros and thus is plugged into any info on Gordon either through EJ himself or his family.
