Kevin Martin invited to the practice squad

Postby JSM on Thu Jun 26, 2008 8:31 am

Sacramento Bee: Kings shooting guard Kevin Martin has been asked to play on USA Basketball's select team. The team is seen by some as the next crop of up-and-comers on the national team scene. The team's duties will be to scrimmage and practice against the national team in Las Vegas from July 21-24 as it prepares for the Beijing Olympics in August.

If select players impress at this stage, however, they could be strongly considered for the 2010 World Championships in Turkey and the 2012 Olympics in London. Center Kendrick Perkins and point guard Rajon Rondo of Boston and forward Al Jefferson of Minnesota also have been asked to be on the select team.

Perkins and Rondo? are you kidding me? neither can play the international game...

there is a reason USA is getting abused every other year in international tournaments...
