Some breaking news to keep your evening rolling: according to Adrian Wojnarowski, John Wall has been cut from Team USA, along with Bradley Beal and Paul Millsap.

The news isn’t terribly surprising, as Wall received a last-minute invite to the training camp, and there were plenty of elite point guards to choose from. There are still 16 players to choose from for the final 12-man roster that will compete in the FIBA World Cup in Spain at the end of the month. The Team USA staff says they plan to cut the roster to 12 by August 22. That means Anthony Davis and DeMarcus Cousins are still in contention, with Davis considered a lock and Cousins on the cusp because Coach K is stupid.

You better keep Boogie, Coach K…

    Steph curry, Chris Paul, Russell Westbrook, and James Hardin are better so its no big surprise, this will be the last year he doesn’t make the team as his jumps hot continues to improve

    It is definitely a tough crowd to be competing with. I think Wall has proven that he is driven and will continue to work. He will indeed get there sooner rather than later.
