Here’s some excellent news for your commute home: ESPN’s Marc Stein is reporting that DeMarcus Cousins has earned a spot on Team USA’s preliminary 2014 roster. Stein said that Cousins, LaMarcus Aldridge, and Steph Curry are among the 25-30 players in the player pool with the chance to make Team USA’s final 12-man roster that will compete in the World Cup of Basketball in Spain this summer. The full list of players will be announced tomorrow. Anthony Davis is also expected to make the cut.
DeMarcus is rolling in the league right now, with 15 straight double doubles. This almost makes up for him not being an All-Star. Almost.
