Rajon Rondo not on U.S. Basketball's final roster

| 1 Comment | No TrackBacks
Boston Celtics star Rajon Rondo is not on the U.S. basketball team's final roster for the world championship after asking to withdraw from consideration. Rondo has started the squad's first two exhibition games, and then didn't play a second in Sunday's last-second win over Spain.

The news would seem to benefit Bulls point guard Derrick Rose, who joins Kevin Durant, Rudy Gay, Lamar Odom, Chauncey Billups, Danny Granger, Russell Westbrook, Eric Gordon, Stephen Curry, Kevin Love, Tyson Chandler and Andre Iguodala on the finalized roster. With Rondo out, he should see a lion's share of time at the point.
