USA Basketball Rumors

“That’s something I’ve always dreamed about doing is playing in the Olympics,” Green said. “One thing I’ve never been is a liar … I thought, when I left college it was the end of it. “When I played in the World University Games, I thought that was my last opportunity. Getting invited to the Select Team, like I said that was thrilling to me, because I thought that was my last opportunity. To be in this pool to possibly play on the Olympic team, I don’t take that for granted. I’m thankful for that, because I think that’s pretty amazing.”
Cousins and Kings forward Rudy Gay were among the 30 finalists announced by USA Basketball for its 2016 Olympic roster. The list will be condensed to a 12-man roster that will compete at the Summer Games in Rio de Janeiro in August. “It’s always an honor to play for the USA teams; it’s not a chance everybody gets,” Cousins said. “Hopefully I’ll make the team and I’m in Rio this summer.”
