    Rudež really isn't a big. It would not be a smart idea to try to transform him into a big as I don't think that his body can handle it.

    Copeland can play PF because he is strong enough for it but Rudež clearly has the body type of a wing, imo.
    I'll take your word for it, i'm not going to pretend to know more about international players than you.

    Someone might want to fill mike trico in on the fact that FIBA has their own clear path rule now....tackling a guy in the open floor is a technical foul.

    This is probably the most Krzyzewski team ever assembled. They are really, really annoying Brazil to death.

    Hard to take advantage of your interior size if you can't get the ball anywhere near the paint.

    A clue as to who may or may not make the team. The only healthy players who didn't play in the first half were Hayward, DeRozan, and Drummond.

    And Korver/Thompson only got scraps, so that's the two fighting for the final spot.

    If K cuts Andre and keeps faried and Plumlee that's his call, but he should have sent those guys home with wall and beal if he knew before this game who was going to make the team. Somewhat of a slap in the face to not give them a chance in a friendly and the cut them tomorrow.

    Is he cutting after this game? I thought he would keep the entire team around until at least Wednesday's friendly, and maybe Friday's.

    He can cut anyone prior to the tournament. That said, he's making it fairly obvious who his picks are already. He's trying to win this game and this is the rotation he's going with. He's not suddenly going to change it next game.

    Anthony Davis will be an MVP sometime in the next 4 years. He is just so athletics, hustles, and has a drive that a lot of players don't. Not to mention, he has the skills as well.
