Redd, White, And Blue

USABasketball.com reports Milwaukee Bucks guard Michael Redd is part of the 12-man roster that will represent Team USA in the upcoming FIBA Americas Championship.

Seattle Supersonics forwards Kevin Durant and Nick Collison were the two players cut.

The roster:

“Named to the USA Basketball Senior National Team were Carmelo Anthony (Denver Nuggets); Chauncey Billups (Detroit Pistons); Kobe Bryant (Los Angeles Lakers); Tyson Chandler (New Orleans Hornets); Dwight Howard (Orlando Magic); LeBron James (Cleveland Cavaliers); Jason Kidd (New Jersey Nets); Mike Miller (Memphis Grizzlies); Tayshaun Prince (Detroit Pistons); Michael Redd (Milwaukee Bucks); AmarĂ© Stoudemire (Phoenix Suns); and Deron Williams (Utah Jazz).”

Update: Bucks.com likes my headline, or great minds think alike. Or something. They now have a "Redd, White and Blue" headline.

Update #2: Same "Redd, White and Blue" headline in the Team USA NBA.com blog.

I hate to say it, especially on a Bucks blog, but a guy like Bruce Bowen would be much more of an asset than Redd.

I'm quite content with Prince playing the defensive stopper role this time around... Redd should be a good fit too.

It'll be very interesting to see how the '08 team looks. Since Bowen didn't make the roster last year, I doubt he'll make it next year.
