Wade and Bryant are tough to beat out but don't forget Joe Johnson, James Harden, Eric Gordon, OJ Mayo, Tyreke Evans and Paul George who are all capable of playing the 2 spot. Exciting news for sure I just can't see him getting on the real team.
It's alright though, he's been selected to play and practice AGAINST the national team, which means he won't make it unless injury or something of that sort.
And I agree, those pick up games last off-season did not whatsoever help his development.
I hope he just comes away from the July camp with more motivation to get better and picks up a few things from some of the games best players. Being surrounded by those players can't do anything but help him and the less time for pick up basketball the better in my opinion.
So when does it start and how long will the training camp actually last?
I hope DD all the best. But lets not get our hopes up quickly. remember J Bayless was also added to the US select team and he's still not a capable PG (though one may argue he's a good SG).
Did anyone think else "his trade value just went waaaay up" when they first heard this? Just me?
Either way, it's nothing but a positive for DeRozan and the Raptors. For all the Colangelo haters, it's unlikely any other GM would've been able to convince Jerry Colangelo of this "favour".
