While it looked as though Rajon Rondo's spot on the final 12-man Team USA roster was secure a few weeks ago, he failed to find the court against Spain on Saturday, as head coach Mike Krzyzewski elected to go with Derrick Rose and Russell Westbrook instead. That DNP might be a sign that his immediate future with Team USA is now in doubt.
Somebody is going to get cut from Team USA after Wednesday night's exhibition game against Greece, and Rajon Rondo has no illusions about where he stands.
"I think I'm on the bubble," Rondo said Tuesday. "Just looking at the obvious -- I got a DNP last game. That pretty much speaks for itself."
Apparently Rondo is leaving Team USA voluntarily to deal with family matters he stated he needed to handle before the season started. Link
