USA Basketball released a preliminary roster on Monday of 44 names to be considered for the upcoming Tokyo Olympics, and while LeBron James and Steph Curry are back in the fold for the national team, the list had some glaring omissions. Notably, players like Trae Young, Zach LaVine, Carmelo Anthony, Zion Williamson, Ja Morant and John Collins were left off the list entirely while Kyle Kuzma, Dwight Howard, Marcus Smart and Derrick White were among the 44 players to receive camp invitations.

He has received considerable criticism for his struggles on defense for much of his career. But to see him not hustling to get back into the fray on the offensive end and not attacking Damian Jones and John Collins in the half court was something entirely different. Through all of the ups and downs in a Timberwolves uniform, rarely has it been a question if Towns is playing hard. Maybe he hasn’t executed the game plan properly. Maybe there were some physical shortcomings that prevented him from doing everything he wanted to do. Maybe his teammates were missing assignments or bricking shots that led to Wolves losses. But he always went hard.
A league source mentioned Houston and Brooklyn specifically expressing interest in acquiring Collins in the days leading up to the trade deadline. Teams that have had discussions with the Hawks have come under the belief that Atlanta is not interested in moving Collins at this time unless it is blown away by an offer, which doesn’t seem like the case 48 hours to go until the deadline.
