As for the other cuts that will get the roster down from 16 to 12, Gordon Hayward now seems the most likely to receive the “Thanks for coming” speech before the rest of Team USA boards a plane Saturday to head to Grand Canaria.
Hayward hasn’t had a bad camp with Team USA but a lot of people forgot he was on the roster — which is why he’d be getting cut. He just didn’t make an impact with the team the way many would have liked to see but he’s not alone in being a big name that could get cut.
Derrick Rose remains on the bubble thanks to his sore knee which means Hayward could be joined by some famous company on his way off the Team USA roster.
