Who should be on Team USA and compete in Brazil next summer?

Locks:

PG -Curry, CP3
SG -Harden
F -LBJ, AD, PGeorge (Coack K told him it's his if he wants it because of his injury last year)


Inside Track (based on talent alone or was on last FIBA team)

C - DHoward, Cousins, Drummond
F - KG, BGriffin, Melo, Manimal, Gay, DeRozan
PG - Westbrook, Irvin
SG - Klay


Has a shot of getting in (if someone drops):

F - Aldridge, Kawhi
C - DeAndre
G - Wall, Conley

Has no shot (based on talent or glut at position):

G - Beal, Oladipo, MCK
F - Draymond, Barnes, Parsons, KLove, Butler, Hayward, Harris
C - Plumlee (really?)

---------------

Ultimately, I think the team will be:

G - Curry, CP3, Harden, Westbrook
F - LBJ, AD, PGeorge, KD (if healthy, Kawhi if not), BGriffin, Aldridge
C - DHoward, Cousins

Jimmy Butler or Klay Thompson are better choices than Harden IMO since they play both ways and you have plenty of scorers.

I'd go with Thompson though if Curry is on the team since they have synergy.

I'm not saying they are better than Harden, just that when building a loaded team like that....they might fit better.
