No Team USA cuts until Wednesday
By Chris Sheridan
After originally saying they'd make up their minds by Monday, Team USA now says it will not decide until Wednesday which four players will be cut from the roster.
To me, this is a clear sign that there is an internal debate raging over which four players to cut. I handicapped who I think will be trimmed in this post Sunday.
When I spoke to team director Jerry Colangelo after the Team USA intrasquad scrimmage Saturday night, he was adamant that the decision would be made Monday, and the roster would shrink to 15.
Given this latest delay, it would not surprise me in the slightest if they end up bringing 16 players to training camp in New York, which begins Aug. 9.
