03:51 PM ET 06.04 | Sacramento Kings big man DeMarcus Cousins participated on Team USA's select team that competed with the men's national squad before last summer's London Olympic games. Cousins didn't impress. Chairman Jerry Colangelo said after the process that Cousins had some growing up to do, but nevertheless, the big man will be invited to the Team USA minicamp in July. Colangelo told Yahoo! Sports that he's put the 22-year-old's issues in the past; this despite there being a debate among the other USA executives regarding Cousins. "You bury the past and go forward," Colangelo said. "He's invited and he's definitely on the list. New year, new summer, new opportunity."

If he behaves and plays well I can see a big fat contract waiting for him sooner than later.

New Olympics, but same toxic talent.

What's the over/under on when he screws up again?

No talent in the center position I guess
