Default No Blazers invited to 2016 Team USA squad

Thirty NBA players will compete for a spot to play in the 2016 Rio Olympics. None are Trail Blazers. All-Star Damian Lillard and Team USA veteran Mason Plumlee were not included on the list of finalists who will compete this summer for a spot the United States' 12-man team...

Lillard said he assumed he would not be a part of the competition to play in the Rio Olympics because he declined an invitation to last year's minicamp and because his last experience with USA Basketball did not end well. In 2014, Lillard was one of the final cuts from the FIBA World Cup team and it's his opinion that he wasn't given a fair shake to make that team.
