Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo [1] was among 15 players to make the cut for Team USA’s squad on Wednesday. Here is the roster:

Chauncey Billups [2] (Denver Nuggets [3]); Tyson Chandler [4] (Dallas Mavericks [5]); Stephen Curry (Golden State Warriors [6]); Kevin Durant [7] (Oklahoma City Thunder [8]); Rudy Gay [9] (Memphis Grizzlies [10]); Eric Gordon [11] (Los Angeles Clippers [12]); Danny Granger [13] (Indiana Pacers [14]); Jeff Green [15] (Oklahoma City Thunder); Andre Iguodala [16] (Philadelphia 76ers [17]); Brook Lopez [18] (New Jersey Nets [19]); Kevin Love [20] (Minnesota Timberwolves [21]); Lamar Odom (Los Angeles Lakers [22]); Rajon Rondo (Boston Celtics [23]); Derrick Rose [24] (Chicago Bulls [25]); and Russell Westbrook [26] (Oklahoma City Thunder).

Asked whether he felt Rondo was an unconventional choice for international play, coach Mike Krzyzewski [27] defended his selection.

“He’s unconventionally become an NBA champion and a triple double guy in this league. I think he’s an adequate shooter for us,” Krzyzewski said. “He did well shooting the ball in the camp. The thing that Rondo does is he plays with a will to win and he just finds ways to have a positive impact on the game. I really like that about him.”
