Sacramento Kings' Rudy Gay added to Team USA

Last week, Indiana Pacers’ forward Paul George went down awkwardly on his leg and wound up suffering a  lower right leg fracture that will likely cost him his entire 2014-2015 season.

On Thursday, the 2013-2014 NBA MVP, Oklahoma City Thunder forward Kevin Durant announced that he would not be participating in the 2014 FIBA World Cup later this summer, citing physical and mental exhaustion. That caused many to question Team USA’s roster and speculate about who could replace the duo on the team.

Aggrey Sam of CSN Chicago heard Sacramento Kings’ forward Rudy Gay may be added to Team USA.

Marc J. Spears of Yahoo confirmed that Gay has in fact been added to the roster.

Gay averaged 20.0 points, 6.0 rebounds, 2.9 assists and 1.3 steals per game while shooting 45.5% from the field, 33.0% from beyond the arc and 82.2% from the free throw line. In his eight-year career, he’s played for the Kings, Raptors and Memphis Grizzlies and has put up 18.2 points, 5.8 rebounds, 2.1 assists and 1.4 steals per game while shooting 45.1% from the field, 34.2% from three and 78.4% from the charity stripe.
