Andre Drummond has good shot at making Team USAPosted by Inside Hoops
Here’s the Detroit Free Press with an update on Team USA, which is currently training in Las Vegas and preparing to trim their roster:
Reports out of Las Vegas say Pistons third-year center Andre Drummond should make the USA FIBA World Cup team as a second-team backup to starters Anthony Davis and DeMarcus Cousins.
Davis (New Orleans) is projected as the starter at power forward, Cousins (Sacramento) the starter at center.
Other projected starters are Stephen Curry (Golden State), James Harden (Houston) and Kevin Durant (Oklahoma City).
With decisions not to play from Kevin Love, Blake Griffin and Dwight Howard, the U.S. team is short on big men, which makes Drummond almost a lock to make team.
