Danny Granger Not on Team USA Roster

There are 20 NBA players who still have a shot to represent the United States during the Olympics in London this summer. Danny Granger is not among them.

Former North Central High School and Indiana University star Eric Gordon was selected to be part of the 20-player pool that could represent the USA in the London Olympics this summer. Gordon was part of the gold medal-winning team in the World Championship in 2010.

Granger, also a member of the 2010 World Championship team, was not one of the 20 players chosen.

The 12-man roster and alternates for London will be announced in June.

As Tom Lewis of Indy Cornrows notes, this is for the best “considering Granger wouldn’t make the final team anyway and will be able to enjoy a normal offseason.” And since Danny didn’t even get that much run in the World Championship tournament in 2010, this is hardly a surprise.

    sucks, maybe simply being selected to be in the finalist pool would get him out of his funk

    His only issue in the Olympics was that he played the same position as Kevin Durant. No big deal.

    Hopefully he can enjoy a normal off-season as mentioned.
