I think they should drop Arenas and Joe Johnson and add Redick and Michael Redd. You HAVE to have a couple of jump shooters in international ball.
I think Redd turned it down; not sure. If he didn't it's assinine for him not to be on the team.
A lot of the best American shooters (Ray Allen turned it down, Kobe is nursing a knee) aren't there.
