I don't think he was even offered a spot. Brandon Roy and David West declined to play.

nice to see some repeats of the 07 Scrimmage Team.

If Jeff Green continues to improve, he could be a very important role player for the US National Team in the future.

I believe Brandon Roy declined because he is trying to gain weight for the up coming season which is gona make him tough to stop he is already 6'6 229.
