LAS VEGAS, NV (WTVB) - Team USA Basketball is expected to announce roster cuts this afternoon. ESPN reports that among the cuts will be Washington Wizards guard John Wall. The U.S. is preparing for the FIBA World Cup which takes place in Spain later this month. Head coach Mike Krzyzewski is scheduled to hold a 2:00 pm press conference to discuss the moves.
ESPN also reports that no players are leaning toward pulling out of playing for Team USA despite the terrible injury to Indiana Pacers All-Star guard Paul George last week. George suffered a compound right leg fracture in an intra-squad scrimmage on Friday and will likely miss the entire NBA season. There are now 16 remaining players left in camp vying for 12 roster spots.
