If Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban watched Team USA dominate the Dominican Republic in Wednesday's exhibition, he probably liked what he saw.

Or more like what he didn't see.
Chandler Parsons, the Mavs' new $46 million investment, did not play a minute in the rout. Kyle Korver and Mason Plumlee were the only other available Team USA players who didn't enter the game, with Derrick Rose sitting out due to soreness in his surgically repaired knee.
Coach Mike Krzyzewski will soon cut Team USA from 16 to 12 players.
It'd be fine with Cuban, who has repeatedly made it clear over the years that he doesn't like NBA players participating in international competition, if Parsons doesn't make the cut.
