Team USA has cut Celtics guard Rajon Rondo.
Well… that's a surprise.
More to come.
UPDATE: Now there's word that he had to leave to tend to family issues. We'll see
UPDATE 2 (with updated post headline):Here's the quote from Jerry Colangelo. Rondo withdrew from the team.
“Rajon came to us and said he was going to withdraw from the team, that he had some family matters to attend to and some things to take care of before the NBA season. He did an outstanding job during our training, we appreciate the effort and commitment he made to our program and he completely has our support,” said Colangelo.
We hope everything is ok. Seems a shame that he had to leave. Although part of me wonders if he ever really wanted to be there in the first place.
