    Although skeptical , what makes me believe him is the fact he did once have a serious leg injury and he is tall and you have to take care of your legs

    If Boucher is sitting out to heal his injuries.. then why did he play at the end of the season when we were tanking the season anyway? Something doesn't add up there. I think it's a contract thing.
    I think we have enough Big Men ... Kelly Olynyk plays his best ball in FIBA and Tristan Thompson and Powel are also big bodies who also know FIBA basketball well .

    The last game he played was the Clippers May 11th, he sat out the last 3 games. If he felt fine he would have played those games, he must still be hurting or aggravated it in the Clippers game. He has zero worry about his contract, it's incredible value for us and one of our best trade assets.

    Boucher said he's sitting out to heal his injury, same for SGA and Murray. I'd expect if any of them are healthy by the Olympics they could join the team but not sure. Gotta qualify for the Olympics first so one step at a time.
    Man seeing that roster and thinking about Murray, SGA, Boucher....coule have such a good team if everyone could get together at the same time. Hope it happens eventually.

    I remember seeing Aaron Doornekamp play back in his high school days. Him and his brother were well known at the time and teams would always try to contain them.

    It's cool to see him still kicking away at the game.

    Someone said Tristan Thompson wasn't gonna play? And does this mean SGA and Boucher aren't playing?
    Wow with Murray I thought we would be in good hands with SGA but no SGA .. Are we pinning our hopes on Cory Joseph and Andrew Nembhard . It seems Nik Stauskas has retired from the national team or wants to get ready for next Gleague Season ..

    Sadly we have to root against teams like Grizzlies and Knicks so we can have Dillion Brooks and Barrett at camp

    I just assumed he wouldn't and I'm actually quite surprised by this. Good for Tristan man. Glad he's on board. We could use a grizzled vet on this team.

    These are guys that just accepted so far. Still time for others to make the team or for guys that accepted the invite to walk away. SGA is the real difference maker though. Hope he can play. And yeah surprised Boucher didn't accept. I thought he would have signed right away.

    Nice to see Dwight Powell accept as well.

    We need SGA or Murray to seriously contend IMO. I don't trust Wiggins or Barrett as the primary shot creators

    Boucher possibly waiting until he knows if the Raps are picking up his contract or not. Otherwise, he's a free agent without a deal.
    Yeah this must be why he hasn't accepted yet. The problem is we have until August 8th to either guarantee his deal or not.. and that's after the tourney.
