The World Cup of Basketball is right around the corner and the American’s are searching for options to try and fill out their broken roster of injured players or players who just don’t want to play.
From the Paul George injury to Kevin Love and Kevin Durant dropping out of the team after Blake Griffin left, the Americans are hurting for big men and that might cause them to invite some new players to the roster to try and fill some serious holes.
According to Aggery Sam from CSNChicago, Team USA may end up inviting someone like Rudy Gay to help replace some of the big men that have been lost.
Been on vacation since the day after the exhibition game in Vegas, but I wouldn’t be surprised if Rudy Gay is an addition to Team USA.

Team USA is in serious need of some sort of help, as their a team of point guards at this point and are in need of some big men to hold things down. It’s not that Gay isn’t the best option, but he may end up being the only option after a while as players like Kevin Durant, Kevin Love and Blake Griffin continue to drop out and leave Team USA right before it’s time of need.
