01:43 PM ET 07.22 | Indiana Pacers point guard George Hill has pulled out of this week's Team USA camp in Las Vegas due to a scheduling conflict. USA Basketball chairman Jerry Colangelo says he doesn't know the exact reason Hill canceled. He says he wants to find out what led to Hill's decision before he makes any determination on the gritty Pacers guard's future chances with the team. Team USA is scheduled to kick off a four-day camp on Monday to start preparing for the 2014 World Cup in Madrid.

Too many players [participate in non NBA sponsored tourneys and leagues. Next season will probably be make or break for the Pacers so they all should stay fresh.

It's unfortunate Nike and the big corporate sponsors get to select the National team. Shout out to Felton. He plays all star ball for first half of the season and then gets hurt. I hope this is the one season he stays consistent and injury-free. He deserves to be there...

Lost: Felton is not on the list as they are looking at all the younger talent. Is he better or equivalent to those on the list probably so. They are looking for next year down the line so Felton wouldn't be your top choice as they are going young. The SG's are not that good outside of George. Truthfully I don't like the complete squad because it lacks a true go to player. Maybe Kyrie is that player but you need more than him.

Here???s the full roster: Ryan Anderson (Pelicans), Harrison Barnes (Warriors), Bradley Beal (Wizards), Mike Conley (Grizzlies), DeMarcus Cousins (Kings), Anthony Davis (Pelicans), DeMar DeRozan (Raptors), Ander Drummond (Pistons), Kenneth Faried (Nuggets), Derrick Favors (Jazz), Paul George (Pacers), Gordon Hayward (Jazz), Jrue Holiday (Pelicans), Kyrie Irving (Cavaliers), DeAndre Jordan (Clippers), Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (Bobcats), Ty Lawson (Nuggets), Damian Lillard (Blazers), Doug McDermott (Creighton), Greg Monroe (Pistons), Chandler Parsons (Rockets), Larry Sanders (Bucks), Marcus Smart (Oklahoma State), Klay Thompson (Warriors), Dion Waiters (Cavaliers), Kemba Walker (Bobcats), John Wall (Wizards), Tyler Zeller (Cavaliers).

Might be to rest up for a LONG season. Indy will be in play to get to the ECF again.

Well Hill had a hamstring problem, hurt his arm (can't remember if it was a shoulder or elbow), and had a concussion...

The guy broke down physically and wasn't anywhere near 100%...I'm thinking it may have more to do with that than anything else.

Hill isn't that good.
