Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports tweeted a short while ago that Rajon Rondo was cut from Team USA’s roster. Such a cut brings the roster down from 13 to the final number of 12, meaning former Hoosier Eric Gordon will be a member of the team for the FIBA World Championships in Turkey.
Gordon likely won’t get a lot of minutes, but he’ll provide a shooter off the bench along with Stephen Curry, a facet of his game Jerry Colangelo noted about two weeks ago as a reason why he had a shot at making the final roster.
The World Championships begin on Saturday. Team USA will take on Croatia.
