Change in Selection Process Could Leave Grizzlies Miller Off Team USA

There will be NO competition for the final Spots on the USA team that will take on the World at the Olympic Games in China this Summer...

And that's NOT good news for the Grizzlies Mike Miller. 

Miller, who played well on the Gold Medal Winning FIBA Americas USA team last summer, may be out before he steps on the floor.

In an about face change of plans, USA Basketball Director Jerry Colangelo says there will be NO Tryouts this year...

The U.S. Will pick its' team by committee.

Originally, the squad was to have 16-players..then cut it to the final 12 by.

Now they'll just name the players they want to go to Beijing.

Miller played shooting guard last season as a reserve...and was used primarily to keep defenses honest.

Word is Team USA is looking to add possibly Point Guard Chris Paul, runnerup to NBA MVP Kobe Bryant, and superstar Dwyane Wade, who was hurt last season.

The Deadline to submit the roster is July 1.
