Team USA basketball: Jerry Colangelo explains Kevin Love making the cut over Julius Randle, younger NBA stars

CBS Sports


Article Summary:

He won a gold medal with Team USA in 2012, but did not play on the Olympic team in 2016 and has struggled in the NBA over the past several years. Team USA director Jerry Colangelo even cited New York Knicks’ Julius Randle as a candidate who was “Right there” on Monday, but he explained that they ultimately landed on Love for two reasons.

In addition to his 2012 Olympic run in London, the Cleveland Cavaliers veteran big man also played for the 2010 FIBA World Cup team that won gold in Turkey. Any team with Kevin Durant, Damian Lillard, Bradley Beal and Jayson Tatum is going to be just fine.
