You have a 6'5, 220 pound guy who can score and hit you dont live him off the roster to "round it out". USA has a good team but they aren't exactly stacked.

Jessiman didn't earn a spot on the team period. Sad truth is both in the rookie camp and the WJC evaluation camp he showed he has a lot of work to do. that's not an insult, he just really needs to play the mental game a little faster. he's absolutley horrific in a transition game.

He's got a lot of talent but he's a project and like i've said before is likely to need at least 3 more years and probably 4.
