FIBA World Cup: Rudy, White, and Blue?

Basketball competitions I would rather Rudy Gay not represent my country in. Last weekend, the US men's national team added Rudy Gay to its roster. The departures of Kevin Durant (personal reasons) and Paul George (injury) necessitated the Rudy comeback.

Could Rudy Gay join DeMarcus Cousins on Team USA in light of Kevin Durant's withdrawal?

The withdrawal of Kevin Durant from the Team USA roster caught everyone a little bit off guard yesterday, but it might have opened an opportunity for another King to make the roster: Rudy Gay.
