The All-Star PG for the Utah Jazz will not lend his talents to the Team USA roster, using the offseason to rest and rehab his right ankle. The fourth-year point guard out of the University of Lousiville had a spectacular season, averaging 26.4 points and 5.2 assists per game. He also balled out against the Los Angeles Clippers during the Western Conference Semifinals but was unable to lift the Jazz over Kawhi Leonard and Paul George, losing four consecutive games after winning their first two.
